LEASEPLAN has today announced that they will be creating a business development division as part of the company’s growth plan.
The new business development division will be bringing together a number of existing UK business functions that will include product services, marketing, consultancy and new product development.
Lesley Slater, who is the former Brand Director of LeasePlan, will be leading the division in her new board level role of Business Development Director. Lesley has a wealth of experience having worked in many sectors of the leasing industry during her 20 year career with LeasePlan.
James Hopkins has been appointed as Brand Director of Network in other significant LeasePlan personnel changes and Lesley Slater’s previous role has been replaced by Simon Carr, formerly LeasePlan’s Go Brand Director.
Matt Dyer, managing director at LeasePlan, said:
“The creation of the business development team will ensure new products enjoy a seamless progression from conception right through to effective delivery to our customers. We’re immensely proud of the innovation that runs right through our business, and this new structure will ensure our customers benefit from this even more.
“I’m delighted that Lesley is taking on this new role and her track record of delivering results via exceptional customer service delivery and clear leadership were key reasons for her appointment. We have fantastic talent at LeasePlan UK and these recent internal promotions are testament to this.”
