Glasgow-based vehicle leasing company Fleet Alliance Group is planning to add 50% more staff in the coming year as the company sees its managed surge from 25,000 to 37,000 in less than a year.
Formed 17 years ago by Martin Brown and Allen and Marjory Flynn, the current 100-strong workforce is based in Finnieston and now manages a fleet valued at £1billion.
During the same period, the Group has arranged funding worth £160 million for around 8,000 new cars in the SME and fleet market. The Group – which comprises Intelligent Car Leasing and Neva Consultants – says it can attribute the increase in business thanks to its intensive and dedicated work with key partners.
Among other recent corporate fleet deals secured by the team is the provision of 550 vehicles for Manheim Auctions across its 16 sites in the UK.
Martin Brown, managing director of Fleet Alliance, believes the company is ‘bucking the trend’ and said: “Our team is resolutely focused on key business goals and building positive partnerships.”
Having smashed a key milestone, Fleet Alliance Group is looking to increase its workforce by 50% during the next 18 months, and is negotiating a second office suite at Skypark, which will be used to house its growing team of tech and customer service staff, as it looks to achieve ambitious growth plans.
“We are planning for and expecting greater growth in the coming months. We don’t intend to stay still now”, Brown added.
