Volkswagen Financial Services – Fleet has appointed Chris Allgood as strategic account manager and Melanie Miles as brand relationship manager.

Allgood will be supporting the national corporate sales team and will be focussing on the management, retention, and development of large corporate fleets, typically of 500+ vehicles.

"Supporting this activity to the customer VWFS – Fleet is also keen to promote its ability to source and fund vehicles from both Volkswagen Group brands and all other manufacturers and as such it has appointed Melanie Miles as the new brand relationship manager," the company wrote.

Melanie has ten years’ experience working within the Volkswagen Group and was previously at Lex Autolease and LeasePlan.

Ian Tilbrook, fleet director, said: "This is an exciting time for VWFS – Fleet, we have already been re-appointed as an approved supplier on the Crown Commercial Services framework, and with these appointments we have the expertise to drive the business further forward.

"Working closely with the full range of manufacturers will help our fleet customers get what they need for their unique circumstances. We also need to work closely with our customer base to show they can trust us with sourcing across different brands when it’s the right solution for them."
