I’ve particularly enjoyed seeing the development from corporate and public sector through to SME and Personal. LeasePlan has also helped lead the significant growth in commercial vehicles – and I believe Business Critical fleets will continue to mature as customer expectations evolve.
I have always enjoyed working with our customers, given the connection that we have to your businesses, and I am proud of the great people at LeasePlan UK who deliver Customer First day in, day out. I will take the same priorities with me into my next role as President and CEO of LeasePlan USA.
It’s clear that 2019 will be an exciting year, with much more to come in our sector – not least digital development, car as a service, electric vehicles, new technology and manufacturer developments. I know Alfonso Martinez, my successor, is looking forward to this opportunity. Having led LeasePlan Italy for over seven years, he will bring a lot of experience, customer focus and shared learning to the role.
As always, the LeasePlan team are here to guide and help you on the road ahead and I would like to thank all of you for the support you have given us. It has been a privilege to be MD for the last four-and-a-half years. Thank you.
Matt Dyer, LeasePlan
