Tero Tapala assumes the role after having held the position of Regional General Manager for a group of six countries (Brazil, India, Turkey, Greece, Morocco and Portugal) for over three years.
Mr Tapala has extensive know-how in operational leasing combined with a broad international experience. He started his career with the company as PHH Deutschland in Germany in 1989 and held the position of general manager of Arval Germany and Arval Austria from 1996 to 2007.
