We helped make several key appointments, including a CFO, COO, Treasury Manager and Non-Executive Director. A specialist in-house web development team was also built to enhance and simplify the user experience, and the increasingly complex management of foreign exchange was reorganised and strengthened

We brought the front-end booking system in house and simplified the booking process so that customers could book a car in just 3 to 4 clicks.
