Dear colleagues, clients, associates and friends,

I write these words with gratitude and admiration.

As Northern Ireland’s leader in the provision of contract hire and vehicle management our company has been built with the interests of our customers and colleagues at its heart. 

Forward-looking, innovative and unified, Fleet Financial leads where others follow.

From humble beginnings in a Holywood conservatory over two decades ago, we owe our success to a dedicated team, strong leadership and the contribution of, among others, Philip Miley, who departs today.

A founding director of the company and now 5 years on from the successful acquisition of the business by Charles Hurst Group, Philip felt the time was right to start a new adventure in his life, involving new ideas and projects.

As a leader and supportive advocate of the automotive industry in Northern Ireland, Philip’s role at Fleet Financial has driven a new era of innovation and customer focus beyond compare. 

Philip has also been a leading figure in our shared goal to make a real difference in our communities and to charities and voluntary groups which we support.

We are delighted to acknowledge that Philip was instrumental in Fleet Financial raising an outstanding £30,000 for Hope for Youth NI as part of our

20th anniversary celebrations last year.

I know you will join me wholeheartedly when I say that Philip will be greatly missed.

His influence, experience, personality – and his recently-acquired new beard (!) – have all contributed to the ongoing evolution of Fleet Financial as a company and as a leading brand. 

In 2017, Philip leaves behind a team of our over 30 professionals who are devoted to carry Fleet Financial on to the next level in the service of our clients.

In my own 17 years with the company, it has been a professional and personal privilege to be part of Fleet Financial’s growth and I would like to express my sincere thanks to Philip for his contribution, dedication and loyalty.

On behalf of everyone at Fleet Financial, I wish you continued success.

Yours sincerely, 

Damian Hughes

Managing Director 


I would like to like to say a huge thank you to all our customers who have supported the business and grown with it.

A special thanks to the many customers whom I now call friends for their support and business since the inception of Fleet Financial over 20 years ago.

I take the company, the entire committed and valued team, the memories and the incredible shared journey with me in my heart.

“I look forward to watching the business grow and to contributing to its success, both as a valued customer, an interested observer and as a friend.

“I have made excellent friends, gained highly-respected colleagues and I have always enjoyed the strength of the team and I thank everyone for their support.”

“Our growth and success has required the most impressive displays of teamwork, innovation, and resilience and working with you all has made my time at Fleet Financial nothing short of a privilege.”
