Athlon sets up International Sales and Account Management Division
The move follows the full acquisition and rebranding of the Fleet Synergy International JV run with Lex Autolease.
The new International Sales and Account Management division will become operational from 3 January 2011 and will be responsible for the acquisition of new international customers, retaining and growing existing international partnerships and working in close collaboration with parent company De Lage Landen.
Fleet Synergy's current chief commercial officer, Sarah Lomas, will become general manager of the International Sales & Account Management division and will report to Richard Sikkel, senior vice president commerce at Athlon Car Lease International.
'The integration of Athlon Car Lease clearly highlights our ambition towards the international market,' said Athlon Car Lease's executive vice president Jacq Van Roij. 'We have steadily grown our footprint over the last years and the integration of International Sales and Account Management into our overall organisation allows us to combine our footprint into one international offering. Being able to provide this international proposition to our customers is another step to be optimally prepared for the future international goals we and De Lage Landen have set for ourselves.'
