National fleet manager joins AMT Group

Leeds-headquartered AMT Group has appointed David Edgington as the national fleet manager for its contract hire and leasing division.

Mr Edgington has more than 30 years’ experience in the automotive sector, latterly working for Listers Group for 17 years where he was fleet director and pioneered its presence and growth into the fleet sector. His expertise includes input into business growth and strategy as well as financial and operational management, leadership and team building skills.

In his new role at AMT, Mr Edgington will be responsible for building a customer focussed sales force and growing the division’s contract hire and leasing business, particularly within the large SME and small corporate markets.

Mr Edgington said: “AMT’s reputation within the specialist vehicle leasing and rental markets is, deservedly, already very strong. It is an ambitious business with real vision and I’m looking forward to further developing the contract hire and leasing operation and helping to raise the profile of AMT among a national audience.”

AMT’s leasing division offers a complete vehicle funding and acquisition solution for all types of cars and commercial vehicles.
