CD Auction Group is the first vehicle remarketing company to sign-up to ICFM’s expanding Corporate Investor Programme and the latest to join in. The Programme aims to raise the standards of fleet industry professional and overcome a possible skills and knowledge shortage in the industry. For this purpose, the initiative offers training for employees, an annual conference, and Masterclasses on key industry issues.
“CD Auction Group look forward to getting involved with the members of the organisation and helping them get a greater understanding of the speed of change in the remarketing sector away from physical auction to online auctions and how they can embrace that change to further improve returns for their business,” said Andy Brown, Managing Director at CD Auction.
The company has more than 28 years of experience in remarketing and managing vehicles for many of the UK’s leading organisations. Its clientele involves companies from the rental and leasing sector and its online success has enabled the company to develop long-term relationships with both clients and buyers.
The benefits of signing up for the Corporate Investor Programme include the ability to display ICFM membership and attend and participate in the organisation’s events including the annual Conference, and the seminars dedicated to understand key industry issues.
Other companies that have joined ICFM’s Corporate Investor Programme are Ambit, Auto Windscreens, Geotab, Michelin, SG Fleet, and Thrifty Car & Van Rental. ICFM is the only independent non-profit organisation in the UK that is dedicated to furthering education, recognising the achievements, and advancing the profession of car and light commercial fleet management.
“We hope that many other businesses will clearly see the value for money benefits of membership and the training and learning opportunities available and then enrol their employees in the various courses and attend our events, whether that be the ICFM’s annual conference or its Masterclasses tackling key fleet decision-maker issues,” said Peter Eldridge, Sales Director at ICFM.
