Nissan GB has named Marco Capozzoli as its new fleet director.

Capozzoli previously held the role of Nissan’s national dealer fleet manager for nearly six years, and is said to have a broad range of leasing, finance, and vehicle rental experience, having also previously worked for VW Group Leasing, Mercedes-Benz Financial Services, and Hertz

He replaces Csaba Vincze, who has moved to be director of network development and customer quality.

Capozzoli said: “I’d like to continue the mid-term fleet strategy with special focus on the dealer network and maximise our performance through sales channel optimisation.  

“With a newly launched range of fantastic, electrified vehicles, including the fully electric Ariya and Townstar compact van, these are exciting times for Nissan GB.

“With our ten-year heritage in electric vehicles, we have valuable experience to help businesses that are looking to cut their carbon footprint and transition to a zero-emission fleet. I look forward to this exciting challenge and continuing to help our customers embrace the electrified era.”

Nissan GB sales director Michael Auliar said: “Fleet will be a key factor in our future success, so I’m delighted to see Marco taking on this exciting new opportunity.

“He will continue to evolve our role as a trusted adviser to the UK’s vehicle fleets, both large and small, and ensure business can access advice that will facilitate their transition to a lower carbon future.”
