Lee Marshall has been appointed as the new CEO of the Motor Trade Association (MTA), effective 18 April 2023.
Marshall joins MTA after a successful career, spending the last 12 years in management roles in the car rental industry. He worked for Apex Car Rentals, Ezi Car Rentals, and Jucy before taking the role of Country General Manager for Avis Budget Group in 2019.
“We’re looking forward to Lee coming on board, to drive our strategy objectives to the next level and evolve MTA into the future,” says MTA President Bob Boniface.
Lee steered Avis Budget through the Covid-19 pandemic and was heavily involved with the consolidation of Avis Budget and Apex Car Rentals.
“Joining MTA is a change and opportunity to learn about something different. I’m really looking forward to getting started,” Marshall says.
“MTA is a very long-standing, proud organisation that is of a scale that no other trade association for the automotive industry can really compare to.”
Marshall replaces interim CEO Ian Pike.
“I would like to thank Ian for his invaluable contribution over the past 15 months. Ian has been instrumental in gaining momentum on a number of projects aligned to our future goals,” Boniface says.
