As revealed in Q1 2018, Sixt has bundled all of the group’s products – including car rental, ride railing, leasing, fleet management and supplementary services – into a one-stop shop with the aim of effectively reducing companies’ mobility costs and providing flexible and cross-border solutions for global players.

Now, the business has reorganised its Global Account Management team to advise major customers on the Sixt Group’s services. Customers have a central contact at their disposal who creates individually tailored solutions for car rental, leasing, chauffeur service, ride hailing and mobility management, backed up by comprehensive reporting.

The new Global Account Management team is being headed up by senior director Michael Poglitsch, who has held several positions for Sixt since 2000, and will report directly to Vinzenz Pflanz, senior vice president of group sales.

Latest global fleets signed up with the brand as a result of the new sales approach include international science and technology company Merck.

Vinzenz Pflanz commented: “The positive response from several major customers shows that our new sales approach is working. Today’s global companies increasingly rely on comprehensive, flexible mobility solutions to help their employees reach their goals cost-effectively. The realigned team in Global Account Management is a key element in offering large corporations exactly the mobility they need at any given time. I am delighted that we have found in Mr Poglitsch a proven industry expert to head this important area.”
