Hyundai has announced the appointment of Jeff Peyton-Bruhl as the company's new national fleet manager.

The appointment is a further development in Hyundai's ambitions in the fleet sector, the company said, and the appointment of additional fleet team members is expected in the next few months.

Peyton-Bruhl was formerly a sales director at Camden Corporate Fleet Services, and national leasing and rentals manager at Rover Group. He has more recently been providing consultancy services to the fleet and motor Insurance sectors.

"I am delighted to be joining Hyundai at this exciting time in its development," said Peyton-Bruhl. "Hyundai is the world's seventh largest automotive manufacturer with resources to match.

"Currently, the brand has relatively little awareness in the UK Fleet market, and too few people understand the model range available. With the launch of some class-leading products, such as new Santa Fe, and shortly new Sonata Diesel and new three-door Accent, we will be able to offer a complete range to the business user."
