New challenges for Leaseplan's Matt Dyer

MattDyerLeaseplan’s Matt Dyer has taken over from Hitachi Capital Corporation’s Simon Oliphant as the new chairman of the British Vehicle Rental and leasing Association (BVRLA).

Dyer who has been with LeasePlan for over 20 years including roles with LeasePlan Corporation and LeasePlan International, joined the BVRLA’s Committee of Management in August 2014, and was appointed to the position of vice-chairman in May 2016.

Looking forward to getting stuck into his new role, Dyer said, “As the new Chairman of the BVRLA, it is an honour to be in a position to drive positive change within the industry I have been associated with for more than 20 years. The BVRLA has been dealing with changes in the industry already with thoughtful and innovative ways and I will endeavour to help contribute to the purpose and vision of this group.”

“My first priority is to ensure we continue the excellent work that has been overseen by Simon, Gerry and the BVRLA’s committee members. The association has really grown in its presence in recent years, developing stronger relationships with government, enhancing its authoritative voice and growing its diverse membership.”

Dyer adds “I am looking forward to helping the association and our members navigate the dynamic mobility landscape we work within. We will be at the heart of the discussion on the big issues of the day – and whatever’s on the horizon; from the challenges surrounding air quality and emissions, to the opportunities surrounding connected data. Informing our members and helping them to understand the positive impact the sector can have underpins everything we do.”

Dyer is responsible for leading the BVRLA Committee of Management – essentially its board of directors – which was joined by Ian Tillbrook, Fleet Director at VW Financial Services Chair of the BVRLA’s Leasing & Fleet Management Committee. Spencer Blake of Wessex Fleet has replaced Fleetdrive’s Mike Potter as Chair of the association’s Leasing Broker Committee.

Commenting on the moves, BVRLA chief executive, Gerry Keaney said, “I’m pleased that Matt is stepping up as Chairman of the association. His enthusiasm and experience will greatly benefit the BVRLA as we celebrate our 50th anniversary. We must also acknowledge the outstanding efforts of Simon and all our outgoing committee members. Their efforts have helped steer the BVRLA in recent years, and we are very grateful.”
