Leeds-headquartered Nexus Vehicle Rental, the UK’s leading technology-driven business mobility provider, has appointed Alex Cook as Finance Director to support the business through the next stage of its growth.

Alex’s promotion from the role of Head of Commercial Finance now sees him lead Nexus’ finance function. He also joins Managing Director John Ellis, Ian Cherry, who moves to the role of Finance Board Advisor, and David Brennan, Executive Chairman, in the business’s Executive Team.

As a qualified chartered accountant, Alex began his career with Ernst & Young in its TAS team before making the move to work within the commercial finance team at Asda, carrying out a number of roles during his eight years at the company.

David Brennan commented: “Following another year of strong growth for Nexus in a challenging marketplace I am thrilled to see Alex promoted into the role of Finance Director. His experience and expertise bolsters our strong management team, reflecting the continuous evolution of our business and the desire to promote our talent wherever we can.

“Nexus has always been at the forefront of innovation, transforming business mobility in the same way Uber transformed taxi services and we are committed to continuous development of our services and products to provide better solutions to our customers. Our recent financials are testament to the hard work everyone in the organisation puts in to make sure we can keep businesses moving, no matter what.”

On his promotion, Alex said: “Nexus is a unique business with a passionate team of people who constantly strive to find the best solutions for our customers. I’m looking forward to leading the finance team in this next phase of our growth and contributing to the expert management team we have in place steering the business forward every day.”
