Matt Dyer has been named as Leaseplan's new managing director
Leaseplan has confirmed its former commercial director, Matt Dyer, as its new managing director.
He replaces former managing director David Brennan, who left the UK's second largest leasing company at the end of April after eight years of service.
Brennan went to a chief executive role at a "non-competing" private equity-backed business.
Dyer has worked for Leaseplan for over 18 years. He has spent time within the firm's UK operations as well as working for its global arms Leaseplan Corporation and Leaseplan International.
In a statement, Dyer said of his appointment: "I am hugely excited to start my new role.
"I'm confident that my extensive previous experience within the business will stand me in good stead to drive Leaseplan UK's strong performance to the next level.
"Customer service across all four of our brands in the UK will remain the utmost priority for the business and we continue to deliver market leading propositions based on the specific needs of each segment we serve."
The firm's global CEO, Vahid Daemi, added: "Leaseplan UK's strong track record is testimony to the commitment to our customers and a great team. I am sure Matt will use these foundations to lead the UK business to continued success in the future."
The company currently operates 136,000 vehicles in the UK and sits in between fellow leasing giants Lex Autolease and Alphabet in the BC50 list of the top 50 leasing companies.
