Epyx’s newly promoted head of account management for the UK and Europe, Jim Claridge, says he is “looking forward to the challenge”.
Taking over management of Epyx’s account management team, Claridge is responsible for supporting fleets – most frequently leasing companies – who use the 1Link range of products to support their processes.
Claridge has been with the company since 2005, working his way through a variety of roles, most recently being product strategy manager.
Tim Meadows, chief commercial officer (CCO) at Epyx, said: “Jim is widely experienced within Epyx and may well know more about the company, its products, and its customers than almost anyone. I’m sure he will make an excellent head of account management.”
Epyx said a key element of Epyx’s corporate plan for the next few years is expansion with Europe, and supporting this growth is part of Claridge’s remit.
Commenting on his appointment, Claridge said: “Our account management strategy is based on working with each customer to understand their core objectives, helping them to better utilise our products to improve their own offerings and derive new efficiencies in their maintenance, finance and remarketing teams.
“We already operate in the Republic of Ireland (ROI), France, Denmark and Portugal but are actively looking to move into new territories where our technology can make a real difference to fleets and other motor industry businesses.
“This will be a key initiative for Epyx in the coming years and I’m really looking forward to the challenge.”
Johannah Hancox and Natalie Thurman joined Epyx last year, as the company expanded its account management capabilities.
