BNP Paribas’ Arval has appointed Miguel Cabaça as its managing director for the UK.

He replaced Benoit Dilly, who had held the position since 2013. During his tenure, he succesfully oversaw the integration of the GE Fleet business, which Arval says allowed the size of its leased fleet to double to over 160,000 vehicles.

Dilly has now took up another position within the BNP Paribas group, which saw him move to Paris.

Cabaça officially began in the role in November. He moved on from the position of director of private lease within Arval, based in Paris. Previous to that, he held a number of management positions within BNP Paribas Personal Finance, which he joined in 2000.
