Dupuy has been promoted from National Sales Director for France after five years working for the fleet management services and solutions company. He previously held roles at the car rental and leasing business, SIXT.
MICHELIN Connected Fleet has also appointed James Moulds to the new role of Corporate Sales Manager. He was promoted from Customer Experience Specialist Manager.
Dupuy, 35, will lead MICHELIN Connected Fleet’s 30-strong sales and customer experience teams in the UK, with a major focus on securing new business from blue-chip clients running HGV and LCV fleets.
“It’s an exciting time for MICHELIN Connected Fleet. My aim is to help accelerate the company’s growth and reinforce its role as one of the fastest growing, and most innovative, fleet management businesses,” says Dupuy. “To do that, we have to provide even higher standards of service by offering customers tailored fleet management tools and solutions to meet all their needs.
“One major focus is to grow MICHELIN Connected Fleet’s partnerships in the HGV market, while supporting continued growth in LCV fleets,” he adds. “The data analysis and insights we can deliver from our on-board telematics systems can be of huge benefit to companies operating larger truck fleets, as well as smaller hauliers and own-account operators.
“Everything we do is focused on streamlining our customer’s operational costs and efficiencies, optimising fleet utilisation, reducing carbon footprints, and making operations safer. And the bigger the fleet, the bigger the potential savings.”
Fred Nahon, Vice President Global Sales Europe at MICHELIN Connected Fleet, says: “Having worked closely with Maxime for two years, where he demonstrated strong leadership skills and developed key customer relationships, I know he has all the capabilities to help us achieve significant growth in the UK.”
Dupuy will be based at MICHELIN Connected Fleet’s London offices, reporting to Fred Nahon.
MICHELIN Connected Fleet is on track to achieve its growth targets in 2023, supported by increased investment from Michelin in its sustainability-focused solutions for both LCV and HGV fleets.
