Renault Trucks dealer RH Commercial Vehicles (RHCV), which has branches in Nottingham, Leicester and Alfreton, is expanding its workforce with four new recruits.

This expansion is part of its ongoing investment plans, and is the largest new staff in take since the company went independent in 2012.

Paul Pearson, commercial director at RHCV comments, “Our new staff hires complement the growth we are seeing in the business. The recruits cover a wide range of areas in the business from sales to service and have demonstrated performance in their areas of expertise.

“In the spring of this year we purchased Cotes Park Commercials, a new 64,000 sq ft site in Alfreton as part of our strategic expansion into Derbyshire and to increase our footprint.”

Gary Standring, from Sandiacre, has been brought in as an additional sales executive to cover the North of Nottinghamshire, which includes the newly acquired Cotes Park Commercials in Alfreton.

Gary commented, “I drove HGVs and LCVs as part of my previous sales role, and so I understand what drivers and companies are looking for in a new truck.

“We are currently awaiting our new range Renault Trucks demonstrator vehicles, so we can show customers Renault Trucks’ extensively developed Euro 6 offering.”

Anthony Milward, who started his career in commercial vehicles as an apprentice mechanic over 20 years ago, is taking on the newly created role of service reception manager.

The creation of the service reception manager position highlights a significant investment into the service and repair arm of the business.

Anthony, who lives in Bulwell, comments, “This new role at RHCV is just the opportunity I’ve been looking for. It’s a new and interesting role. As service reception manager, I’ll be able to help customers with all the information they need. It’s all about help not jargon!”

The company currently employs around 65 staff across the three sites. Two of the new staff, Melanie Ince and Sarah Charlesworth, join the administrative team as sales administrator and purchase ledger clerk respectively.

RHCV is an authorised distributor for Renault Trucks and provides new and used sales, service and parts for the full Renault Trucks range as well as all-makes parts and servicing for commercial vehicles.

Some of the RHCV staff will be at Truckfest Original at Newark Show Ground on 7th and 8th September to welcome the new range of Renault Trucks to the East Midlands.
