LeasePlan UK makes new appointments as fleet hits a new record

The company said the growth is underpinned by strong performance in the commercial vehicle market, as well as increased business for the Automotive Leasing and Network brands.

It also added that the new appointments reflected the company’s growth ambitions. Under the changes, Chris Tubbs moves from head of risk to the position of brand director within LeasePlan UK’s Network operation. Chris started at LeasePlan UK in 1996 and has since held responsibility for a number of areas, including managing the technical services and remarketing teams.

Ranjit Dosanjh joins the business as director of new business for the LeasePlan UK brand. Ranjit brings a wealth of business development experience – particularly around the area of major bids.

She has extensive experience with both the public and private sectors from roles with G4S, Thales and Tribal Plc and has led new business teams in areas of IT, finance and education.

Hein du Plessis re-joins the business as head of new product development. Hein left LeasePlan UK in December 2011 to return to South Africa where he has spent the last three years living as head of fleet solutions for Eqstra Fleet. During his previous spell with LeasePlan UK he held roles including account director and head of consultancy services.

Matt Dyer, managing director of LeasePlan UK, said: “I’m delighted to welcome Chris, Ranjit and Hein to their new roles at LeasePlan UK. We’ve seen strong growth in the first part of 2015 and these appointments are a statement of intent with regard to continuing this positive progress. 

“Reaching 140,000 funded vehicles in its fleet for the first time ever is a great achievement and to see all our brands grow is an extremely positive sign. LeasePlan UK is firmly on target hit its goals for the year, and I believe Chris, Ranjit and Hein all have hugely important roles to play in ensuring our business performs to its full potential this year and beyond.”
