Axis Fleet Management has promoted its Sales and Marketing Director, Leigh Goodland, to the role of Managing Director.
Leigh was recruited by Axis as Sales Director in March 2017 and shortly afterwards also assumed overall responsibility for Marketing. During this time he has been a key figure in the re-structuring of the business, developing a highly motivated team of regional managers across the UK.
Prior to joining Axis, he accumulated more than 15 years’ of industry experience in senior roles at MAN Truck & Bus UK, Isuzu Trucks UK and Cordwallis Vehicle Contracts.
Commenting on Leigh’s appointment, Axis Executive Chairman, Robert J Montague CBE, said: “Since joining us earlier this year, Leigh has shown himself to be an innovative and energetic leader who has helped transform our business by focusing on the highest service standards and value added solutions for our customers.
“His promotion to Managing Director is part of the significant investment we’ve made in quality people over the past year. I look forward to working alongside him in his new role as we continue to grow our business across the UK.”
