Asset financing specialist, LHE Finance (part of Dawsongroup), has appointed Mike Dixon to the newly created role of Trailer Development Manager. Dixon’s remit includes a dual focus on expanding LHE’s portfolio of specific finance products.

With 23 years’ experience in the trailer rental business, Dixon joins LHE Finance with an impressive CV. A career that started in 1981 with Crane Fruehauf provided him with an invaluable introduction to the sales arena. In ’89, in a senior sales position with Central Trailer Rentco, he began a decade of experience in developing trailer-specific rental packages. After a brief spell in the ‘sports’ industry, he was back in harness with Transrent plc before, in 2008, launching his own LGV driver recruitment agency, Driving Link Ltd.

In the last 12 months, Dixon has been with Dawsonrentals as Trailer Development Manager. The move to LHE Finance allows Dixon to combine his considerable talents.

“I have a proven rental and finance skill-set within the commercial trailer sector,” said Dixon, “I also have the technical knowledge and a solid understanding of the trailer manufacturing process. And, with my experience of rental operations, I’m very confident of my ability to strengthen LHE’s financial offering.”

Mike Dixon is based just outside of Manchester.
