Silverstone Fleet Management began trading in 2012, founded by Managing Director Scott Norville. With over 15 years motor trade experience from a variety of manufacturers from Hyundai to BMW and gaining a wealth of experience in the corporate arena, Scott spent 7 years with a premium brand looking after local companies and private individuals via contract hire & leasing in Northampton.
The same question was always asked from Scott's clients, '"We would like several quotations on various brands, can you help us?' From this, Scott knew that being restricted with one brand needed to change.
Scott decided to setup a vehicle leasing brokerage leaving the dealership life behind him. Thanks to his sister Stacy and the other directors at her company, Filtration Control Limited, she allowed him to work at her office in Brackmills Industrial Estate, on the basis he would look after their current fleet of cars
The name Silverstone fitted in well being based in Northamptonshire with the natural heritage of motor racing with the legendary Silverstone Circuit.
Many people questioned Scott on his intentions, saying it would not work, the market is too saturated and you will not be able to get any funding partners due to no trading history. This was then the grounding for the fuel that fires his motivation today.
Early morning starts and late nights Scott built the business up slowly with one customer at a time making sure that exceptional customer service was always the forefront of the business. A year past and Scott employed his first member of the team to look after the sales support side of the business, arranging paperwork and making sure cars are booked in for delivery. Aby is still with him today. Year by year Scott's team grew. Today he has 7 members in his team, a Sales Director, Nick who he has know since he was 3, a Commercial Division headed up by Joe Francis, and two Account Managers, Ryan Bishop and Allan Pilling with Holly helping Aby in sales support.
