THE post-lockdown recruitment drive in the Leasing Broker community continues with Leasing Gorilla appointing two new staff to meet increasing levels of business demand.

Charlie Beresford and Lindsey Blakemore have joined the Staffordshire-based personal leasing specialist in the role of Business Development Managers.

Beresford brings a wealth of dealer experience to Leasing Gorilla, joining from West Way Nissan where he was responsible for LCV business development at a national fleet level.

Meanwhile, Blakemore adds extensive leasing broker experience having previously worked for Freedom Vehicle Contracts as a Sales Administrator.

Leasing Gorilla is also recruiting additional administration staff to support the rapidly growing business team.

Chris Jennings, Director of Leasing Gorilla said: “While we saw customers holding back or cancelling orders during March when COVID-19 lockdown started, since then both June and July have been record months and August is set to continue this trend. I think what we are seeing is 12 months’ business compressed into nine.”

The online leasing portal, Leasing Gorilla, is a brand of fleet management specialists CBVC Vehicle Management. It was launched two years ago to take advantage of the upswing in personal contract hire demand.
