SURREY-based leasing broker, Concept Vehicle Leasing, has appointed Gary Dawes as its head of strategic partnerships.

Gary, who joins from outside the automotive industry, will work alongside partner relationship manager, Luke Finnerty, to develop Concept’s establish network of partnership firms.

The plan, says Concept, is to grow the partnership base to over 100 during 2021. Partners enjoy exclusive benefits, including access to networking events, a partner forum, marketing support, regular workshops, events and a lifetime rebate from all successful introductions, from initial introduction, future client renewals, and any referrals they generate while still a partner.

I’m absolutely thrilled to be joining Concept at such an exciting time for the business. I’ve known Paul and the team for almost as long as they’ve been in operation – and have always been a huge advocate for the business.

CEO Paul Bulloch said he was keen to expand the variety of business partners to include more:

  • Accountancy practices
  • Asset finance brokers
  • Insurance brokers
  • Part-time finance directors
  • HR consultants
  • Recruitment consultants
  • Business coaches
  • Virtual PAs
  • Commercial Insurance Brokers

“We’re also working on potential partnership opportunities with fintech firms – it’s all about expanding our reach with a B2B audience,” he added. “The pace of change in our industry is rapid and hugely exciting, particularly the trend on the uptake of electric vehicles as the sector navigates towards the road to zero.

“The demand for quality consultative advice and insight for businesses has never been stronger, and I feel there is a huge opportunity for us to expand our reach through strategic partnerships. Gary has the right experience to help us achieve our vision, and I’m absolutely delighted to welcome him to our team.”
