JOE Howick, rental management director at the rental management division of the Leasedrive Group, the UK’s largest independent privately-owned vehicle management group, has been appointed to the executive board.
Leasedrive commercial director Roddy Graham said: ‘Joe has been with Leasedrive for over 16 years and during that time has played a pivotal role in driving the sales growth of our rental management business. In the last year, since his promotion to the role of rental management director, he has risen to further challenges by implementing new processes and controls to streamline operational efficiencies.
‘Our rental management division represents a very significant part of our business and, accordingly, we are absolutely delighted to recognise Joe’s effort and contribution to this area of the business with this important appointment.’
Between 2003 and 2011, Howick (42), a former full-time golfer and assistant golf professional, held the position of sales director at the rental management division. Before that he was national sales manager, having joined Countrywide, then part of Leasedrive, as a regional sales manager in 1996 from Convinflow, where he was sales director. Earlier, he was sales manager with Wyatt & Sons, formerly Prudential Property Services, for over six years.
