LEASING and mobility provider Alphabet has appointed Spencer Halil as the company’s new Chief Commercial Officer.
Subject to FCA approval, Halil will take up his new position from 01 February 2021.
Joining from sister BMW brand Alphera, where he has been Director for five years and led the company through a strong growth period, Halil will take over from Simon Carr.
On his appointment, Halil commented:
Having worked in the motor finance industry for more than 22 years, I am a firm believer in the power of people and know the best results are achieved through strong teamwork.
I’m delighted to be joining such a high performing and driven team, bringing my own experience to complement their work. Together, we will continue to develop the next stage of Alphabet’s Commercial strategy and maintain the company’s industry-leading position.
Nick Brownrigg, CEO of Alphabet, added:
Spencer has tremendous experience in the industry, and his extensive knowledge will prove invaluable across a number of our strategic projects in the UK. We’re looking forward to him joining us at Alphabet, to further progress our business and commercial offering.”
I’d also like to say a personal thank you to Simon for all his work and achievements during his time at Alphabet, and particularly for extending his time with us to enable a smooth transition and handover in the Commercial division.
Following the departure of Simon Carr at the end of the year, and until FCA approval is received, Nick Brownrigg will assume responsibility for Commercial operations with support from Joanne Ewen, General Manager of New Business and Direct Sales.
When Halil’s appointment is FCA ratified, as CCO he will also be a member of the Alphabet Management Committee.
