Ian Tilbrook joins VW Financial Services as Interim Fleet Director


Volkswagen Financial Services UK (VWFS) has appointed Ian Tilbrook as Interim Fleet Director.

Tilbrook is the former managing director of Glass’s and has extensive experience of the vehicle leasing sector, previously as managing director of ING Car Lease, integration director for Alphabet and formerly with LeasePlan as international sales director and sales director of the UK.

His tenure as managing director of ING Car Lease was highly successful and spanned some 10 years of significant growth between 2001 and 2011.

His appointment comes as VWFS embarks upon a significant programme to reshape and evolve its fleet business, improving its multi-marque offering and developing first class customer-focused solutions.

Tilbrook commented: “I’m delighted to join such an innovative and progressive company at this particular time. I’m excited about helping drive the business forward.”

Graham Wheeler, managing director of VWFS added:  “Our plans for the future of Fleet within VWFS are ambitious. Our collective goal is to be the best in the industry and the assistance of Ian, with his impressive background and track record, will be a major asset in driving our business forward.”  

Tilbook’s appointment comes after a record year in already for VWFS Fleet; where 2014 saw just short of 100,000 vehicle portfolio, establishing VWFS as sixth in the Fleet News FN50 list of top fleet lessors – the fastest growing leasing company in the UK.
