Looking ahead and in a couple of months’ time spring will have sprung, the thanks-giving and feasting of Easter will still be fresh in our memories, and at Marshall Leasing we’ll be gearing up for a very special event. As with Easter, good food will be on the brain – gateau and pain aplenty you might say – indeed heading up the British Vehicle Rental and Leasing Association's menu of choice will be our very own ‘Cakebread’, as Marshall Leasing’s managing director is recognised by the industry for his expertise and dedication.
On the 16th May 2013, Peter Cakebread will be become Chairman of the BVRLA – a role that he will go on to fulfil for the next two years. Over that time, Peter will be actively involved in representing the interests of all members – both large and small – and helping to ensure the future health of the industry.
Having our MD recognised in this way is indeed an honour, particularly for a smaller player such as ourselves. We’d like to think that his appointment is an endorsement of what we’ve been doing at Marshall Leasing over the years, and the values we have built our business around. As we’ve said before, these values are what help us to stand apart from the competition and they’ve been instilled in us by our senior management and by the wider Marshall Group.
There are certainly exciting times ahead for Marshall Leasing. But if you want to get a feel for what’s in store for the wider industry over the coming months, take a look at Peter’s recent post on the subject, where he discusses issues ranging from pre-registration to capital allowances and electric vehicles. Peter will be commenting on the many challenges the industry faces throughout his BVRLA journey. We wish him luck and success for the year ahead!
