Vertu announces head of fleet for Mercedes-Benz business

Tuesday, October 16, 2018

Vertu Motors has announced the appointment of a new head of fleet for its Mercedes-Benz dealerships.

Damien Rigby has more than 18 years’ experience working in the fleet industry, with 12 in the leasing market.


He has held a number of senior positions at Mercedes-Benz UK and most recently he was strategic business manager at Arval.

As head of fleet he is focused on strengthening the division’s fleet team, developing current and new customer relationships and delivering the best customer experience.

Vertu Motors recently acquired Hughes Group, which has Mercedes-Benz outlets in Beaconsfield and Aylesbury.

Hughes Group has a dedicated fleet and business team, which has been supplying vehicles to the fleet and business market for 23 years.

In his new role, Wigby will work closely with Clare Maher, group corporate sales manager at Hughes Group, who has more than 20 years’ experience working in the automotive fleet sector.

Damien, who is based at Mercedes Benz in Slough, said: “Vertu Motors is a very forward-thinking business and this is demonstrated at every level, within every area of the company.

“I am fortunate to join at an exciting time, when the Group is investing in the growth and expansion of its existing network of fleet retailers. I am keen to play a part in that success, and to position Vertu at the forefront of the fleet industry.”
