Refreshed team drives Seat fleet sales success

Seat Fleet Team

SEAT’s increasingly successful Fleet and Business Sales team, led by ex-Audi fleet professional Nick Andrews, is celebrating another important signing with the addition of Kellie Lee to the line-up.

Kellie joins fellow Area Fleet Sales Managers Barbara O’Neill-Joyce, Pippa Benham and Yulia Eaton in reporting to recently-appointed National Sales Manager Sally Livingstone in the very obviously female-dominated team.

The 29-year-old joins the burgeoning fleet and business sales operation from Huddersfield SEAT, where she set up what has become a very successful fleet department.  Kellie spent just over two years in Huddersfield building a broad base of corporate clients from sole traders through to some of the top ten leasing companies in the UK.

Now, as Area Fleet Sales Manager with responsibility for the north of England, Scotland and Northern Ireland she will be using her skills to seal fleet deals with everyone from small companies to major household names across the North.

Kellie said: ‘My move to SEAT UK has come through my development in the SEAT network.  I’m delighted, and very excited, about my new role.

‘I firmly believe the Brand is going from strength to strength, and I am very pleased and fortunate to be able to be a part of establishing SEAT as a fleet manufacturer of choice.’

Fellow fleet sales professionals Barbara, Pippa and Yulia are, of course, no strangers to the increasingly competitive fleet industry.  Pippa has upwards of a decade of fleet sales experience with both SEAT UK and Masterlease, while Yulia brought experience from both Audi UK and Renault Russia to her role when she joined SEAT earlier this year.

And the obvious strengthening of SEAT’s fleet and business sales operation is already paying off handsomely for the ambitious Spanish firm.  In the last few weeks alone SEAT has sealed a variety of significant fleet deals, including the largest single order in the 24-year history of the company in the UK.

Alongside the recently-announced news that SEAT is to supply 500 new Leon Ecomotives to British Gas the team has also secured significant orders with AAH Pharmaceuticals and global transport and distribution business TNT.

SEAT UK Head of Fleet and Business Sales, Nick Andrews, said: ‘The recent changes we’ve made to strengthen and develop SEAT’s fleet sales operation are already resulting in improved sales and greater awareness of the Brand.

‘I’m convinced that my new team is exceptionally well-qualified to build on this success.  We have made a good start, clearly, but there’s much more to do if our aim of making SEAT a fleet manufacturer of choice is to be achieved.’
