David Brennan

Executive Chair, Nexus Vehicle Management


I am Executive Chair of Nexus Vehicle Rental, a technology platform connecting vehicle rental providers to UK corporate customers. I became CEO in May 2014, when the business was under the ownership of Livingbridge. In late 2015, we delivered our first exit with the support of Bowmark Capital. In the two and half years under their ownership we drove growth through the development of new adjacent segments and by winning large corporate accounts. In 2018, we delivered a tertiary buyout with Phoenix Equity Partners, and with their support we have further scaled the business organically and launched more new vehicle related categories. In 2023, we completed our fourth PE management buyout with Equistone.

I enjoy supporting PepTalks members on:

  • Accelerating growth through organic growth strategies.
