NISSAN continues its flurry of new senior appointments: Michael Stewart is appointed head of leasing, specialist fleet sales and rental – a new role at Nissan; and Andrew Sellars is appointed network sales director.
Michael Stewart, formerly network sales director, moves to a newly created role as head of leasing to help build relationships with UK leasing companies and driving Nissan performance in the sector.
Stewart commented on his appointment:
“Nissan is focused on developing the quality of its market share and our relationships with the UK’s leasing companies will be critical to this success. I’m delighted to be taking on this new role within Nissan and driving performance in line with our fleet sales goals, in what are challenging and fast-moving market conditions.”
Taking the role vacated by Stewart’s appointment, Andrew Sellars joins Nissan Motor GB as network sales director.
Andrew returns to the UK from Volvo Car Group, where his latest position was of vice president – commercial operations, based in Thailand for the APAC region.
Prior to Volvo he held a number of senior roles with Kia Motors UK and Kia Motors Europe, but began his career in the dealer network, selling cars.
“With exciting new model launches this year, including the new Qashqai and X-Trail, this is a fantastic time to be joining a very dynamic business. I’m delighted to become part of the Nissan family, and look forward to working closely with the dealers on qualitative sales and high levels of customer satisfaction – all supported by the great added opportunities these new product launches represent.”
Darren Payne, Nissan Motor GB sales director, commented on the new appointments saying:
“We are now in a great position to meet the challenges and requirements of both the retail and fleet markets, with new models launching into key sectors throughout 2017.”
