Northgate Vehicle Hire has appointed Melanie Creedy (pictured) to the role of EV business development manager, as its fleet customers continue to make the shift away from diesel.

Creedy brings more than eight years of fleet expertise to Northgate. She will operate on a national level and work closely with head of strategic accounts, Kathleen Whittam.

Her brief includes working with the sales team to set up strategies to help businesses manage the transition into electrified fleets, offering turnkey solutions including EV infrastructure.

Creedy said: “I am excited to be working for such an established brand within the industry, and one with such an extensive national reach.

“For a lot of fleets, the Drive to Zero can seem challenging, but I am delighted to simplify that process as much as possible at all levels. With the right framework for a transition to EVs, it can be a remarkably simple process.”

Whittam said: “We are looking forward to Melanie adding to our already highly skilled team, her knowledge of facilitating large-scale fleet transitions, and her passion for greener, more sustainable fleets will be of huge benefit to all.”
