Fleet management software provider Chevin Fleet Solutions has announced the assignment of a new global sales & marketing director to drive its continued worldwide growth.

David Gladding, formerly Chevin’s UK sales director, has been awarded the new role, which will see him work to coordinate Chevin sales operations in all territories, further grow the company’s sales teams, and maintain its successes locally, regionally, and globally.

The company has created the role of global sales and marketing director after a hugely successful year in which it achieved record revenue growth (+57% in 2016). During the past twelve months it has undertaken the largest recruitment drive in its 26-year history to help meet growing customer demand, streamline its management processes, and continue its growth trajectory.

By recruiting Gladding to the new position, Chevin underscores its intention to continue moving the business forward globally. Chevin’s software is currently used by companies in more than 180 countries around the world to manage more than one million vehicles and assets, and its team works from offices in the U.S., UK, Australia, Belgium, France, and Germany.

Today’s news also closely follows the announcement that Chevin has signed a partnership with Jordan-based Pioneer Consult, to facilitate increased sales of its enterprise-level fleet and asset management software, FleetWave, across the Middle East.

Speaking about the appointment, Chevin Managing Director Ashley Sowerby said:

“David is a central member of the Chevin team with an unparalleled understanding of the global fleet management industry. Starting with us back in 2013, he has worked tirelessly to help increase revenue, deliver improvements in customer account management, and overall help Chevin and its customers achieve many goals and improvements across the board. David will be transitioning out of his UK dedicated role over the next few months and I look forward to working with him on an ongoing basis.”

Gladding added:

“I am very proud to be named as Chevin’s new global sales and marketing director and very much looking forward to taking this role on. Chevin goes from strength to strength in its mission to deliver world-leading, quality fleet management software to the industry. I look forward to continuing to work with Chevin’s strong team across the world to move the business forward.”
