Tusker provides car benefit schemes enabling public and private sector employees to drive a new car, with the cost offset against wages as a benefit in kind. The business now funds more than 20,000 vehicles, with clients including the NHS and National Grid. In April, Paul Gilshan, 43, took over as chief executive, with previous incumbent David Hosking, 55, who led a buyout backed by private equity firm ECI Partners in 2015, moving into a deputy chairman role.
