Hexagon Leasing has hired the former Commercial Director of Motus Commercials, Alan Ellison as its new CEO.

Ellison, who begins his role this week, previously held the position of Commercial Director at Motus for five years and spent 12 years at DAF Trucks in various senior roles. He also holds an MBA from Warwick Business School.

Following a number of other senior appointments this year, Ellison will add further strength to the management team at Hexagon whilst it continues to develop its growth strategy and development plans. The company moved to a new head office in Burton Upon Trent last year to allow for the expansion of its customer service team to support the growing fleet size and customer base post pandemic.

Ellison said: “This is an exciting time to be joining Hexagon, the business has a unique history of providing innovative solutions to customers and has a fantastic, long-standing and loyal customer following.

“With supply chain disruptions and long manufacturer lead times, it’s really pleasing to see that Hexagon took a proactive stance and have a strong pipeline of new vehicles to support customers’ business both in 2022 and in 2023. The company has a talented and award-winning team of people which I am truly looking forward to working with.”

Hexagon is a leading and multiple award-winning nationwide contract hire, vehicle sales and fleet management provider. Supplying and managing some of the highest-profile transport and distribution companies in the UK, the company provides ultra-high specification vehicles and vehicle services including industry-leading compliance, customer support and 24/7 vehicle breakdown cover.
