Brose, who takes on the position of Business Development Director, has more than twenty years’ experience, having held senior positions with both ground transport and private hire service operators and solution providers. Most recently Brose held the position of Operations Director at Climatecars, prior to the company’s acquisition by Addison Lee, before working as a commercial consultant managing short term projects for logistics and transportation companies.

Operationally Brose has worked with prestigious and global ground transportation brands such as TBR Global, a £20 million turnover company, and Brunel, which operates in 480 cities across 75 countries. Brose has completed business review and reorganisation projects, been instrumental in progression from company start up to acquisition and, while working with Climatecars, Fraser Eagle and Chauffeurcar Services, managed multi-million pound contracts with brands such as Emirates Airlines, BMI Regional and Etihad Airways.
“I am delighted to be working with a premium product like Echo. In fact, during my time in the operations side of the industry, I would have given anything for a solution as advanced as Echo to resolve numerous scheduling and customer handling issues,” added Brose.
Brose also brings to his role at Magenta experience with the solutions side of the industry, having held the position of Business Development Manager with Catalina Software, a provider of chauffeur, courier and logistics solutions.
“This is an interesting time to be joining Magenta as the company enters the next stage of its growth, and there are a number of exciting new innovations being launched to market which will take Echo even further ahead of the competition,” Brose concluded.
