The appointment follows the completion of Beech Tree Private Equity's multi-million pound investment into the group earlier this year.

Adrian, has worked alongside the group's managing director Lea Hodson for a number of years, both as non-executive and as lawyer.

"Adrian's appointment to the board of RS Fleet is testament to the client philosophy we adopt as a firm, which is to work as an extension of our clients' management team and to be valued as a key strategic partner," comments Nick Taylor, head of the corporate team at Higgs & Sons.

"We look forward to strengthening our relationship with the business as we continue to work with Adrian in his new role, both as commercial director of RS and as an ongoing consultant to Higgs.  I am also delighted that Adrian has agreed to chair our new client board, to which he will bring a unique insight."

Adrian Cutler states:  "The decision to accept a commercial role with RS wasn't an easy one given the calibre of Higgs & Sons in terms of its people, its reputation and its clients.
