What challenges is your business facing right now?

Choosing the right people can help overcome challenges in your business operations.



Supply Chain


Consumers have high expectations, anything that disrupts the flow and movement of goods around the UK has a knock-on effect that retail brands can’t afford. This falls on the shoulders of our clients and it is essential they have leaders who can effectively manage fleets.

Carrying out essential maintenance and servicing and mitigating the risk of delays or breakdowns is a key component in ensuring the UK economy can continue to meet supply and demand.

Making sure you have the right people in place to manage operations and coordinate servicing and maintenance is critical.

Executive search

Headhunting the best executive talent for your automotive business

Effective automotive executive search comes through a thoughtful and exacting automotive recruitment process that we build together. We collaborate to discuss organisational issues and strategic goals so that the hiring process is built less around a job title and more around a unique person. This enables us to get clear on the identity, experience, skills, and qualities that will match goals and improve and change the organisation. From Operations Directors to Health and Safety officers, Depot Managers and Automotive Sales Executives, candidates are vetted and proven. This comes through an extensive network built over many years that includes access to candidates not openly seeking to move.

With over 20 years as an automotive recruitment specialist, our director Enza Carelli has the experience, insight, and executive candidate network to meet the needs of Commercial Fleets, Contract Hire, Leasing, and Distribution companies across the automotive sector.
