Financial services broker Midlands Asset Finance (MAF) has launched a new vehicle management and leasing division, offering a holistic fleet solution that can include accident and risk management and mobility.

Dubbed MAF Leasing, the new division is headed up by Chris Leslie, who previously led the new business team at Pendragon Vehicle Management and brings more than 25 years’ experience in the automotive industry.

While Midlands Asset Finance already offers tailored funding packages to business operating in all industry sectors, the new division brings a bespoke solution for larger fleets, offering an end-to-end service that can include add-on features such as risk management.

This focus on a specialist, tailor-made service for fleets is supported by a dedicated new business sales and account management team, all of whom are experienced in the financial services and vehicle management sectors and are headed up by Chris Leslie.

Alongside the new division, MAF Leasing also offers a team of experts to look after consumers and small businesses, allowing users to source, compare and lease vehicles online for both personal and business use.

Speaking about the creation of the division, Leslie said: “I am delighted to be joining MAF to launch this exciting new division. We can now offer a mobility solution across multiple business sectors, whilst offering a comprehensive vehicle funding solution for all our clients – whether it’s for personal or business use.

“After gaining significant interest in the service already, I’m looking forward to seeing the division grow as we help businesses navigate the challenges of fleet ownership through these difficult times.”

Dave Chapman, director, head of sales & property at Midlands Asset Finance, added: “The new division will complement our existing offering of funding for asset finance and property really well, as we provide funding solutions across all industry sectors.

“We will be concentrating on helping clients with cost savings and improved efficiencies across all aspects of vehicle management.”
