Nick Andrews has been appointed as Commercial Vehicles Director at Mercedes-Benz Financial Services UK Ltd, effective from 1 February 2018.
In his new role, Nick will oversee the sales and operations of financial services for Mercedes-Benz Truck, Mercedes-Benz Van and EvoBus customers.
Mercedes-Benz Financial Services UK Ltd (MBFS) announced its’ best ever year in the UK’ in 2017 with regards to commercial vehicles. There was more funding for vans than ever before with a record £356 million lent last year – an increase of 19.5% over 2016.
Nick moves across from Mercedes-Benz Cars UK Ltd, where he held the role of Fleet and Remarketing Director during a huge period of growth for the Brand, and before that was Head of Fleet, where he helped to achieve record sales and a 20% rise in fleet registrations.
Reflecting upon his new appointment, Nick Andrews commented: “I am hugely excited to make a real difference to our Truck, Van and Bus customers. When other high street banks were closing their doors to UK businesses, Mercedes-Benz Financial Services kept lending and supporting customers, so much so that we have increased our lending amount every year since 2008.
“In my new role I will be continuing that trend and supporting the diverse industries in which our customers operate. It is a fantastic opportunity to build upon my experience and understanding of how important vehicles are to keep businesses moving and I look forward to celebrating our collective successes together.”
Nick joined Mercedes-Benz in 2011 with significant automotive experience, including seven years at Volkswagen Group, and seven years at Nissan before that.
