Asset Alliance Group has appointed Debbie McLean as rental manager Scotland.
McLean assumes the role after a year as national business manager at TOM Vehicle Rental, and will be working for two Group companies: Total Reefer, which is a specialist in temperature-controlled vehicle contract hire, rental and leasing; and Asset Alliance, which supports the full range of commercial vehicle types.
The role will see McLean working to develop the Group’s rental proposition in the north of England and Scotland. She said: “The challenge for me will be to spearhead the growth of Asset Alliance Group’s rental proposition in Scotland. This strategic investment comes just over a year after the company expanded into the region with the opening of the Newmains branch, and we’re aiming to continue the Group’s pursuit of excellent, flexible and reliable customer service with this new venture.”
She continued: “As the Asset Alliance Group evolved, the team has worked hard to retain a focus on providing a bespoke, ‘small business’ approach to each and every customer, no matter the size of their operations. As a company, there’s nothing more important to us than building business relationships that last.”
McLean’s experience in the sector began at Burnt Tree Vehicle Rental, where she held the role of sales manager for Scotland. Upon leaving Burnt Tree, she joined TOM Vehicle Rental as national business manager, before moving to join Asset Alliance Group.
McLean has also held positions with British Airways and Coca-Cola Enterprises, as well as that of senior sales executive with BMW Group.
She will be based at Asset Alliance Group’s Newmains branch in Lanarkshire.
Asset Alliance Group recently secured a £75m revolving Asset Based Lending deal led by Royal Bank of Scotland and supported by HSBC – an agreement that, it says, strengthens the Group’s approach to purchasing, refinancing and procuring vehicles for its clients, by using its own funds and buying power to supply multi-brand assets on any combination of contract hire, operating lease, finance lease or hire purchase.
