Earlier in May, Summit Fleet Leasing and Management announced changes to their senior leadership team which indicate a new strategy to leverage the global capabilities of the Sumitomo Group in the areas of mobility and efficient transport operations.
David Clinch has been promoted to the role of Group Executive after leading the local business for almost 10 years in the role of General Manager. Before joining Summit, Clinch worked at Custom Fleet as GM Trade Services and is a well known figure in the Australian fleet management industry with decades of experience across several organisations.
The General Manager role has been filled by Darren Gore who now leads the local business. Gore has extensive fleet management and leasing experience with a career that started back in 1992. He joined Summit in 2011 and previously held the role of Strategic Sales and Business Excellence.
David Clinch said, “I am looking forward to focusing on the synergies that the Sumitomo Group has in the energy and mobility sectors, the opportunity of converging these into genuine value propositions for the changing needs of an electrified automotive future is very exciting.”
“I am very proud of the way we have evolved the Summit Fleet business and look forward to supporting Darren and the team through the next phase of development.”
In assessing the future for Summit Fleet, Darren stated, “We have a very stable and nimble capability which we have used to great effect in designing customer centric fleet solutions, the client feedback is fantastic, we are well positioned to continue and improve on our high quality service delivery.”
“David’s leadership in bringing together a strong business team who have helped evolve Summit Fleet is a great legacy to inherit and I am looking forward to his continued guidance and expertise as we all play a part in the future of mobility.”
The leadership transition commenced a few months ago with formalities occurring at the start of April.
