Kit Wisdom appointed Managing Director at Tusker

Kit’s new role begins this month (January 2024) and he will join Nick Williams’, CEO of Lloyds Banking Group Transport, senior leadership team.

Since 2018, Kit has served as Tusker’s Chief Operating Officer and has significant experience in leasing, positioning him as a clear successor to drive Tusker’s growth in Salary Sacrifice Car Schemes across the UK.

Kit Wisdom, Tusker’s new Managing Director commented:

“My time at Tusker has allowed me to gain a deep understanding of the business, its strengths, customers and importantly, the talented team it employs. Driven by our purpose to help the UK drive a better car, I look forward to steering and leading Tusker’s next phase of growth in the coming years.”

Paul Gilshan Steps Down

Gilshan has stepped down to take a place on the board of Tusker PLC in the position of Non-Executive Director. Gilshan joined the company in 2016, becoming CEO in 2018. His many achievements included growing the fleet size to 40,000 with a large proportion of EVs, on track to achieve its net zero target ahead of time. Gilshan also oversaw the successful sale of the business to Lloyds Banking Group in 2023.

Paul Gilshan, former Tusker CEO, commented:

“I am proud to leave the company in such a strong position as a market leader, fully set up to take advantage of the growing salary sacrifice market. This is an opportune moment for me to pass on the leadership reigns and to support the business in a different way as Non-Executive Director.”

Nick Williams, CEO of Lloyds Banking Group Transport said:

“As we reach our first full year of Tusker being part of Lloyds Banking Group, it is brilliant to see how much we have achieved together in such a short amount of time. I am delighted and welcome Kit into his new role as Tusker’s Managing Director and wish Gilsh all the very best in his Non-Exec role. I look forward to the next phase of our journey, and have no doubt Tusker will continue to lead the way in keeping Britain moving towards a more sustainable future.”
