Peter Cakebread to Head Up BVRLA
Peter Cakebread, managing director of Marshall Leasing has just been appointed Vice-Chairman of the British Vehicle Rental & Leasing Association (BVRLA) and will take over as Chairman of the BVRLA in May 2013, a position he will then hold for two years until 2015.
The BVRLA is the UK trade body for companies engaged in the leasing and rental of cars and commercial vehicles. Its members provide shortterm rental, contract hire and fleet management services to corporate users and consumers.
The BVRLA’s members operate a combined fleet of around 2.5 million cars, vans and trucks, buying nearly half of all new vehicles sold in the UK. Through its members and their customers, the BVRLA represents the interests of more than two million business car drivers and the millions of people who use a rental vehicle each year. As well as lobbying the
government on key issues affecting the sector, the BVRLA regulates its members through a mandatory code of conduct.
Peter has been heavily involved with the Association for many years, during which time it has successfully represented the interests of the industry.
Commenting on his appointment, Peter said: “It is, of course, an honour to be selected for this role, which reflects the standing Marshall Leasing has within the industry and the Association. Once again, it is an example of Marshall Leasing punching above its weight, as this role would usually go to the head of one of our larger competitors.”
