His ideas, personal qualities and range of experience in the fleet business are unrivalled. With these qualifications he fits perfectly to this role and we’re pleased to welcome him back to the German Alphabet family.”

Uwe Hildinger is being replaced by Clive Buhagiar as interim chief operating officer at Alphabet GB, and succeeds Ursula Wingfield who will take on a new position at BMW Financial Services UK.

“I wish Ursula the best of luck and we are grateful for everything she has achieved during her tenure at Alphabet Germany. She truly further developed the company successfully,” added Marco Lessacher.
