LEASING and mobility provider, Alphabet, has appointed Sacha Imamkhan as its new Chief Operating Officer.
Imamkhan, who moves from the role of Head of Remarketing, will also join the UK Management Committee having led a strategic project in recent months across both the Alphabet and BMW Financial Services brands in the UK.
Her appointment means Imamkhan will take over with immediate effect from Clive Buhagiar, who has been acting interim Chief Operating Officer, following the departure of Uwe Hildinger to Alphabet Germany.
Buhagiar will now continue his role as Head of Operational Services, reporting to Imamkhan.
Imamkhan said on her appointment:
I am delighted to be stepping into the role of COO taking Alphabet’s operations to new heights, building on the great progress that the team has already made.
Having worked at Alphabet for more than eight years, I’ve held roles both in the UK and at Alphabet International headquarters. This, coupled with my background at ING Lease, has given me a strategic perspective across the fleet business and an in-depth operational understanding from Alphabet markets around the world. This experience sets us in good stead to respond to challenging market conditions in the UK.
With a focus on the high level of service our customers expect, I am looking forward to driving our business operations forward, staying one step ahead of evolving needs. I’d like to thank Clive Buhagiar for the significant support he has given us as interim COO over the past three months.”
A Dutch national, Imankhan joined Alphabet GB in August 2018, moving from her role as Project Manager for New Markets based at Alphabet International in Munich, Germany. Previously she had been at ING Lease before its merger with Alphabet.
