As part of its business growth plans, East Midlands-based Renault Trucks Dealer, RH Commercial Vehicles (RHCV) has strengthened its senior leadership team with three key appointments.

With a new head office in Nottingham, RHCV has three additional sites across the East Midlands in Leicester, Alfreton and Northampton and specialises in sales, parts and servicing for heavy and light commercial vehicles. The appointments follow a significant period of growth for the company, as well as a £3.5m investment in a new headquarters in Nottingham in July 2019.

The strengthened team will be pivotal in streamlining and improving customer and employee experience, whilst enabling continued growth for the business.

Robert Pick has moved from Financial Director to Business Performance Director. Having joined the RHCV team in 2015, Robert was previously responsible for heading up the finance department. In his new role, he will be responsible for driving improvement in quality of service, overseeing risk management and maximising profitability through the provision of training, new automation systems and improved efficiency across the business.

Ben Jeays has been newly appointed as Financial Director, overseeing the eight strong finance department. With more than 10 years’ experience, working for corporations in both the East Midlands and London, including global management consultancy, WYG Group, Ben brings a wealth of knowledge to his new role.

After 13 years with RHCV, James Daykin has also been promoted to Group Dealer Manager. Having started with the business as a Parts Apprentice, James was promoted to Dealer Point Manager in Leicester. During this time, he played a significant role in RHCV’s growth, increasing revenue by 50%.

Nigel Baxter, Managing Director at RHCV said: “RHCV has gone from strength to strength in the last year and the appointment of our two Directors and Group Dealer Manager, will ensure we are pushing ahead with our ambitious business plans in 2020.

“Their combined experience and knowledge will allow us to offer even more expertise for our customers at this time of growth and I am delighted to have them at the helm of our senior leadership team.”
