Previously responsible for DAF sales in the South West since 2011, with earlier roles at PACCAR Financial, DAF’s in house finance business.

Halliwell is not the only person to enjoy promotion at the Haddenham-based business.  Ian Grant moves from Fleet Sales Director to Aftersales Director with James Stewart filling the fleet sales role.

Tim Scott, Managing Director at Translease, was one of the first customers to recognise Hunt’s contribution, “Nigel was instrumental in helping the Translease start-up in 2005,” he said, “and he has been our Account Manager ever since. Nigel is a true ‘old school’ salesman; cool, calm and collected, and thoroughly likeable. Even under pressure, Nigel was never flustered and was always able to skilfully engineer a deal. He was a great ambassador for DAF Trucks, and I look forward to staying in touch with him following his retirement.”
