Latest ARI appointment signals fleet funding intentions
ARI has appointed Rory Mackinnon as the head of its asset funding programme to support the continued growth of its funding model.
Mackinnon brings nearly a decade of experience in helping customers manage their vehicle funding portfolio and will be tasked with helping customers identify potential efficiencies across their portfolio, which will include ARI’s own finance lease product and multi-bid contract hire.
Jason Chamberlain, ARI’s sales & marketing director, commented: “I’m delighted to welcome Rory to the team and his appointment follows his proven track record in providing a range of funding solutions to corporate customers. Rory’s in-depth industry knowledge and ability to build long-term partnerships which deliver real financial value will be of huge benefit to ARI’s new and existing customers.”
Mackinnon commented: “With the impact of IFRS 16 taking leases onto the balance sheet, now is the time for clients to look at their fleet procurement and funding model and ask whether their current arrangement is fit for purpose. I feel very privileged to join a business with the global presence and reputation of ARI and I look forward to helping new and existing customers reach the best option for their business from the full suite of funding products available.”
