Direct Car Rentals Ltd. Estcourt Rd.Fulham.London SW6. 1997-2004
Formed the company. I arranged vehicle acquisition through leasing and outright purchase as company became established. I was responsible for all marketing and advertising, which for example, used advertising in the local press, Yell.com and I designed a web site, all with incorporated monitoring. I also used direct mail and visiting prospective corporate clients. I built up the business with a 60/40 bias towards business customers. I was able to attract and retain a number of well known, top quality clients. I also dealt with the day to day operation of the company, including accounts using the Sage system. I arranged deliveries, accident management and servicing of the vehicles. The fleet was built up to approximately 24 units, which encompassed a broad spectrum of vehicles, including light commercials.
