Pivotal Role for New National Sales Manager at Nationwide Fleet Services

Nationwide Fleet Services, the leading independent fleet support service provider, announces a new National Sales Manager for the UK and Ireland, with the appointment of 38-year-old Ricky Mitchell to the role from this month.

Nationwide Fleet Services’ choice is a particularly good fit, given the new National Sales Manager’s 15 years’ experience in the automotive industry, fulfilled at Apollo Vredestein UK and ATS Euromaster, as well as Acclaim Handling and the RAC.

With a solid background in the fleet support services sector, from vehicle recovery to contract hire, maintenance and repair, Mitchell has a proven record of commercial success, specifically in the tyre sector, which makes him the ideal addition to Nationwide Fleet Services.

NFS Managing Director Nick Diment explains: “Ricky’s brief is to have an influential role in NFS’s growth in the pivotal area of new business acquisition, offering tyres, breakdown recovery, vehicle maintenance and MOT testing. His appointment is a reflection of our overall strategy to equip NFS with the business development leadership that it needs to keep thriving.”

“Obviously, I am delighted to join a company which has kept growing even in tough circumstances: it clearly shows not only strength and determination but also clarity of leadership,” says Ricky, who reports to Nick in his new role. “My track record in winning new national fleet accounts, coupled with my knowledge of the tyre industry, will keep me in good stead in my new exciting role.”
