Arval UK, the leading vehicle leasing and fleet management company, has announced a change to its executive management team in the UK.
Bart Beckers, currently the Managing Director of the UK business, is leaving Arval UK to take up a key position within the Arval Group. He will become Chief Commercial Officer, based in Paris from the 1st September 2013. He will be leading the Group business functions including sales, marketing, pricing and service delivery, as well as selected business transformation projects.
Having held the Managing Director role for 3 years, he leaves the UK business with improved systems, a more focused and efficient structure, and in a strong position for future growth and continued, solid profits.
Replacing Bart as Managing Director of Arval UK will be Benoit Dilly, who will officially take on the new role from 1st September. He moves to Arval having held a similar position at BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions, part of the BNP Paribas banking group.
The transition is expected to be a smooth one as Benoit knows the Arval business very well having held a number of international roles within Arval prior to moving to BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions. He is also currently UK Retail Co-ordinator for BNP Paribas in the UK, the area of the bank that Arval falls within, and has been a board Director of Arval UK since last year. The knowledge that he has built during this time means that he has a strong understanding of the business and the fleet market in the UK, making him perfectly equipped to provide continuity and further build a growth strategy for the UK entity.
