Alphabet delivers record public sector growth in 2013
Top three leasing company, Alphabet, is celebrating after announcing record annual orders, as well as leading the fleet industry for public sector business across the CCS (formerly GPS) framework. The mobility specialist, which operates more than 20,000 vehicles in the public sector, has seen significant business success over the past 12 months, growing its public sector fleet volumes across housing associations, local authorities and NHS Trusts.
Clive Buhagiar, head of public sector at Alphabet, commented: “With stretched budgets and concern over fleet efficiency, a focus on reducing costs and streamlining mobility operations is quickly becoming a key priority for public sector organisations. We have invested significantly in developing a number of new products and services to minimise fleet costs and provide complete mobility solutions for organisations across the UK and Europe.
“From AlphaCity, our fully-integrated service to reduce pool fleet cost and administration, to AlphaElectric, the industry’s first dedicated service to guide the use of plug-in vehicles, we deliver a fit-for-purpose package – guaranteeing to get employees from A to B using an efficient, effective and environmentally-friendly process.”
With plans to further increase fleet size and bespoke services for public sector mobility managers, Alphabet has also recruited fleet specialist Simon Barr as sales manager.
Formerly business development manager at Venson Automotive Solutions, Barr brings more than 12 years’ experience and knowledge to Alphabet’s dedicated public sector division. He will play a key part in developing relationships with housing associations, NHS Trusts and local authorities, with a view to increasing their understanding of Alphabet’s full product portfolio and reducing mobility costs.
Commenting on his appointment, Barr said: “The range of products which Alphabet is able to provide to the public sector is second to none; from duty of care programmes, through to flexible mobility solutions and electric vehicle consultancy, we can offer a bespoke service to meet any client requirement. I’m excited to join the team at such a successful period and look forward to driving further growth for Alphabet in the public sector market.”
