THE BVRLA has embraced diversity by appointing Nina Bell, Managing Director of Avis Budget Group as the first female Vice-Chair of the British Vehicle Rental and Leasing Association (BVRLA).
Nina will occupy the position for a year, before progressing to Chair in 2019.
Introducing Nina as the new Vice Chair, BVRLA Chairman Matt Dyer said:
“Nina has made a significant contribution to the sector in her role as Managing Director of Avis Budget UK and she has made a valued contribution on the BVRLA board since 2015. We are delighted to announce her as our first ever female Vice-Chair.”
Nina will support Matt Dyer for one year, then take up the role as BVRLA Chair for two years before reverting back to Vice-Chair.
She commented: “I am delighted to have the opportunity to play a more active role within the BVRLA and give back to the industry I have worked in for over 20 years. I am especially proud to be the first female Vice-Chair. We are seeing an increasing number of women across the industry, and I believe that my appointment underlines the Association’s commitment to ensure representation of our very broad and diverse member base.”
Along with Nina’s appointment to the Management Committee, Louisa Bell – who is General Manager of Avis Budget UK – was named Vice Chair of the BVRLA’s Rental Committee.
