I look forward to working alongside the other members of the Alphera senior management team and providing input to help build the future of Alphera Financial Services, drawing on my experience in the multi-make retail and fleet business.”

Alex Royal, director for Alphera Financial Services, said: “We know Tony will be a key driving force in signing new dealer partners and extending relationships with existing ones. He brings a wealth of experience from across different elements of the business, which will be invaluable as we shape new strategies and adapt to changing needs across the motor finance sector. I would also like to thank Adam Harley for his work over the past two years and wish him the best of luck in his new role outside the Group.”
