Synergy Car Leasing has appointed its first Chief Financial Officer (CFO) to boost and support the next phase of its growth strategy.
David Brockwell, a highly regarded and experienced CFO with a comprehensive background in innovative car leasing solutions, is joining the business.
Formerly the CFO and Chief Operating Officer at Tuskerdirect for 12 years and Group Finance Director at ION Trading Systems for five years, David has most recently worked as a senior consultant within the fleet industry.
His extensive experience of leading teams to maximise growth potential is the perfect fit for Synergy Car Leasing, which joined the Newable family of companies in early 2020. Synergy provides business and personal vehicle leasing and fleet management services across the UK and sees David’s appointment as key to its growth ambitions.
David said: “I’m really pleased and excited to be joining Synergy Car Leasing. The business is well placed in this dynamic market, with a solid offering and a good growth plan. I see my experience as a great fit and look forward to building on Synergy’s success to date.”
Synergy Car Leasing was founded in 2006 by Paul Parkinson and now employs more than 50 people at its Harrogate site. The business, recognised as the fastest-growing leasing broker in its class by the Leasing Broker Federation, has an established online service and offers safe and free contactless UK mainland delivery.
David added: “Paul is incredibly enthusiastic about the success of Synergy and the leasing broker industry as a whole. He’s a passionate, energetic leader and I’m very much looking forward to working alongside him and the wider team as Synergy moves into 2021 and beyond.”
Paul Parkinson, CEO and Founder at Synergy Car Leasing, commented: “Synergy has enjoyed an incredibly exciting growth journey in recent years and it’s fantastic to welcome David to our senior team as we enter the next phase of our growth. He’s a highly respected CFO and finance professional with a wealth of experience and knowledge in our sector.
“We operate in a fast-paced, competitive and highly regulated marketplace and I’m confident David will hit the ground running to achieve great things for the future of our business.”
