Nissan has appointed Paul Franklin-Slattery as its new national corporate sales manager, taking over from Mark Wheeler, who was recently promoted to the role of fleet sales director.

Franklin-Slattery joins Nissan from Seat, where he spent four years in the fleet department, latterly as the key account manager.

Before joining Seat, he spent more than a decade at General Motors and Vauxhall, where he worked in both fleet and retail sales roles.

“Nissan has enjoyed great success in recent years and there is a palpable enthusiasm to keep that going and to build on it,” he said
