INDEPENDENT leaseco Ogilvie Fleet is celebrating 10 years of trading from its Sheffield divisional base.

To mark a decade of business – when Ogilvie Fleet first expanded into England and opened a new division in Sheffield targeting South Yorkshire and the eastern region – a liveried MINI is going on an Ogilvie Fleet promotional ‘tour’.

From the original team of six people – five of them remain a key part of the now 30-strong Sheffield-based team today – started to secure new fleet contracts and that business success has continued and led to the more recent opening of an office in Belfast and the creation of a dedicated South of England sales team.

Ogilvie Fleet, headquartered in Stirling and a key business within the privately-owned Ogilvie Group, has 16,000 company cars and vans on its books, up from 6,750 a decade ago.

Ogilvie Fleet managing director Gordon Stephen said:

“When we opened our Sheffield-based division 10 years ago with just six members of staff little could we have believed the business would have expanded to the size it has – employing 30 people in the office from where almost 6,000 vehicles are managed, which is more than a third of the company’s total fleet, on behalf of hundreds of customers.”

Of the original six, Nick Hardy – then head of the ‘Sheffield six’ – is now Ogilvie Fleet’s sales and marketing director.

Other original members are:

  • Ashley Crookes, then divisional sales manager but now director of sales (North);
  • Nick Faulkner, who was then a new business executive and is now key account manager; and
  • Louise Blair and Matt Topham, who started as customer services executives but have since been promoted to customer services team leader and group marketing manager respectively.
  • Final member of the ‘Sheffield six’, area manager Dan Price, is now leasing manager – North for Nissan’s fleet team (and now account manager for Ogilvie Fleet!).
