Road risk management specialist DriveTech has appointed Nick Butler as its new fleet director.
Butler replaces Chris Thornton, who is retiring from the business world, and brings a wealth of experience from within the automotive and finance industries.
He was most recently head of mobility services with Alphabet and spent 15 years there, prior to which he worked for Renault Financial Services and Ford Credit Europe.
Butler said: “I am delighted to be joining Drivetech at a time where having a coherent driver risk policy is increasingly at the top of many fleet customer’s agendas, and look forward to meeting existing customers, as well as growing the business by fully utilising our unique range of products.”
DriveTech managing director David Wilson commented: “I’m delighted to welcome Nick to the DriveTech business and look forward to working with him to further strengthen and grow our fleet driver risk management business area. When Chris Thornton took the decision to retire, we saw this as an opportunity to build on Chris’s sterling work over the past few years and appoint a similarly professional leader with a tremendous fleet pedigree and some very valuable experience in this sector to help us to continue to deliver our market-leading driver risk management services.”
