Europcar Mobility Group has named Ron Santiago as managing director of Europcar Mobility Group UK, covering all activities and rental brands of the group in its UK perimeter.
He joins the UK business following 12 years as managing director of Europcar Mobility Group Australia and New Zealand. He has taken over from Gary Smith who has been appointed as managing director, for Europcar Mobility Group Northern Europe and US Region.
He said: “It is tremendously exciting to be returning to the UK where I worked for 17 years, previously. Gary Smith has handed over the reins of an innovative and customer-focused business that has stood up to the challenges of 2020 exceptionally well, delivering services that go to the heart of the needs of private and business customers.
“In a challenging and complex environment, still impacted by the pandemic, I’m excited to work with our colleagues and customers, as we focus on providing the right mobility solutions to help the UK economy get back on track. I’m also looking forward to be developing and offering services that can support the government’s low and zero emission goals.”
