BVRLA names new chairman

Written by Ellie

Matt Dyer of Leaseplan has been confirmed as the new chairman of the British Vehicle Rental Leasing Association (BVRLA).

He replaces Hitachi Capital’s Simon Oliphant, who has stepped down to become vice-chairman after leading the group for the past two years.

Mr Dyer’s appointment as BVRLA boss came into effect following the association’s annual general meeting on Thursday 18th May.

His main responsibility as BVRLA chairman will be to lead the group’s Committee of Management – essentially its board of directors – which has also gained one more appointee: Ian Tillbrook, fleet director at VW Financial Services, now chair of the BVRLA’s Leasing and Fleet Management Committee.

Mr Dyer said it was an honour to be in a position to drive positive change within the industry.

He commented: “My first priority is to ensure we continue the excellent work that has been overseen by Simon, Gerry and the BVRLA’s committee members. The association has really grown in its presence in recent years, developing stronger relationships with government, enhancing its authoritative voice and growing its diverse membership.”

Molly Benton, brand manager at Fuel Card Services, adds: “The BVRLA has a long track record of bringing about positive change in the industry. We know Mr Dyer will maintain Simon Oliphant’s hard work to help contribute to the purpose and vision of this group.”
