Europe’s largest independent provider of outsourced fleet management services,
has appointed Leomont Wouda as its international business development director,
as well as managing director of Traxall Belgium.
Bringing more than 19 years of fleet management, leasing
and strategic business growth experience to the role, Mr Wouda has held senior
management roles for a number of operators including international fleet and
supply chain management provider HPI Fleet, Mobility Group Europe and
Masterlease (part of General Motors).
He joins from global vehicle fleet management organisation
ARI (part of the USA headquartered Holman Automotive Group), where he was international
sales manager and commercial manager, Benelux.
Mr Wouda said: “As the bridge between the 15 countries in
which we operate across Europe and South and Central America, I will be leading
and driving the international commercial strategy, working with all our local
businesses to align services and marketing in support of significant growth
“Today, our core services remain heavily focussed on the
delivery of fleet management services in multiple markets but, with the current
market evolution from fleet to mobility management centred on vehicle
connectivity, it’s an exciting time to be joining.
“As people become gradually less attached to their
company car, employee mobility looks set to involve more complex but more
efficient transport solutions, including car sharing, public transport and even
bicycles. We can act as the lynchpin of such solutions, connecting the
different pathways while consolidating and tracking data to give employers a
transparent global overview of their costs and operations.”
Current services include strategic mobility consultancy,
vehicle sourcing and ordering, multi-supplier solutions, leasing contract and
account management, invoice control, driver management, supply chain management
and global fleet reporting.
Traxall International CEO Ross Jackson added: “With a
deep local knowledge of each market in which we operate combined with a
globally co-ordinated strategy, Traxall International provides a unique balance
between standardisation and flexibility of fleet strategy, procedures and
policy. This ‘local management: global view’ approach continues to ensure
service excellence, satisfied local stakeholders, engaged employees and
effective delivery and reporting.”
