Cabfind.com appoints Jonathan Brennand as new General Manager
Wirral-based Cabfind.com is continuing to strengthen its management team, with the appointment of Jonathan Brennand as general manager.
Jonathan, a director-level chartered accountant, joins the ground transportation B2B market leader from Peel Airports Limited where he was the head of procurement, IT and service delivery for more than five years.
In his new role, he will oversee the development and implementation of the organisation’s operating strategy to drive the ultimate client experience and facilitate excellent supplier relations with the network coverage required to meet the current and future needs of the business.
Chris Jordan, MD at Cabfind.com, said:
“Jonathan has a proven track record of delivery in finance, procurement, operational and commercial management, so he is the perfect candidate to help us realise our ambitious growth plans over the coming years.
“He brings a vast amount of strategic experience to this role and his positive approach, enthusiasm and commitment make him a welcomed addition to the management team.”
Having graduated from the University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology with a BSc Hons in Mathematics and Management Sciences, Jonathan began his career at KPMG where he worked his way up from auditing to corporate restructuring and recovery.
Jonathan then became an investment analyst following the support services sector before moving to Hewden, a tool and plant hire company predominantly supplying the construction industry. Here he held the position of head of product for more than three and a half years.
In 2005, Jonathan’s next role was business development manager at Speedy Hire PLC, where he was a senior member of the corporate development team reporting to the PLC board commercial director responsible for business improvement, strategic development and mergers and acquisitions.
Jonathan Brennand, General Manager at Cabfind.com, said:
“This is an extremely exciting time to be joining Cabfind.com as the business is forecasting and definitely has the potential to attain huge growth over the next few years.
“I’m really looking forward to setting out the strategy and building on the current structure to support the growth plans, so it can realise its potential and ultimately go global.”
Over the past eight months Cabfind.com has taken on 20 new members of staff, and is currently recruiting for a further ten positions.
The ground transportation B2B market leader, which manages the private hire transport needs of corporate and public sector clients including the NHS, Her Majesty’s Prison Service and Channel 4 News, is gearing up to create a new high caliber software development centre at its headquarters in Birkenhead.
This new centre will enable Cabfind.com to become the leading provider or private hire vehicle booking platforms in the UK and overseas. It will also create a further 30 jobs over the next three years.
