Prior to his appointment Neil worked for the AA for over 16 years and has an abundance of knowledge and skills gained whilst working in the organisation’s deployment and scheduling departments, culminating in managing his own customer service team.

Neil Holding, scheduling controller, Fleetclear: 'From the moment I came across Fleetclear I have been impressed by the people and the “whatever it takes” attitude. They are ahead of the curve in terms products and services they offer. The focus on safety is particularly motivating for me given some of the road accidents and driving behaviour from motorists that I became aware of during my time at the AA. I am excited to be able to bring my knowledge and experience to help Fleetclear continue to grow and be successful.'

Neil, who describes himself as a ‘born planner’, has always enjoyed logistics and the challenge that comes with an ever-changing environment. He not only organised his own wedding down to the very last detail (except for the dress and colour of the flowers obviously) he is also the designated planner at home and manages the family diary for wife Rachel and daughters Leyla and Lexi.

James Attrell, commercial director, Fleetclear: 'We are delighted to have Neil on board. He has a wealth of relevant experience and knowledge that we will be putting to good use. As we continue to grow it is important that we bring people on board who share our ethos and customer service philosophy as well as having the right skillset. I’m glad to say that Neil fits the bill on every level.'
