Rivus CEO to also hold MD role at Pullman Fleet Solutions

The MD of Pullman Fleet Solutions, Kevin Wildman, has announced he will be leaving the company, which was recently acquired by Aurelius.

Private equity company Aurelius bought Pullman from Wincanton for an undisclosed amount in November. 

It came weeks after the firm, which also owns Rivus Fleet Solutions (formerly BT Fleet Solutions), bought GKN Wheels & Structures from GKN. 

Wildman explained: “This has been an extremely difficult decision for me to take but, on reflection, now is the right time for me to move on.

“It has been a privilege to work with such an amazing team and I know with Aurelius‘ passion and enthusiasm, Pullman is in good hands”.

David Myers (pictured), the CEO of sister company, Rivus Fleet Solutions, will succeed Wildman and they will work together in the meantime to ensure there is a smooth transition. Myers will also continue in his role as CEO of Rivus.

He said: “This provides us with a unique and exciting opportunity for both companies as I will be able to see at first hand how we can learn from each other, so we can offer our customers an unrivalled fleet management proposition."

When it acquired the HGV-focussed Pullman business, Aurelius said it would complement Rivus’s focus on light commercial vehicles (LCVs).

Myers said: “We would like to take this opportunity to thank Kevin for his contribution and support, especially in the last 12 months, not only leading Pullman through a challenging time but also building the framework upon which the future success of the company will be built.”

Headquartered in Doncaster, Pullman is an independent provider of commercial fleet management and maintenance, with a focus on heavy goods vehicles. It has 25 service centres and more than 70 mobile service vehicles.
