Jason's promotion is expected to help drive Seat fleet sales forward, specifically targeting growth in medium to large fleets which helped
spearhead its sales success in 2014 in which the Leon achieved volume growth of 80 per cent - the biggest increase of any car in the lower-medium segment.
The appointment comes after a successful period of nearly two years with the firm. Jason's previous roles have included successful stints at the Sytner Group, where he managed corporate sales for a year, Mercedes-Benz and Allied Bakeries, as a key account executive within the bread industry.
"It is fantastic to be part of this brand, as we're continuing our momentum in terms of developing a strong foothold in fleet with a compelling product portfolio including some of the best performers in their class in terms of quality and cost. With a line-up of vehicles like this at our disposal, we are determined to continue to build sales volumes and market share in preparation for the introduction of an SUV in 2016," said Jason.
Managing a team of seven, he will be based at the Seat UK headquarters in Milton Keynes for up to two days a week; the rest of his time will be spent with his team stationed around the UK.
Jason is married with two young children. In his spare time, he enjoys cycling, cooking, travelling and spending time with his family.
