New director of remarketing Phil Schappert to create additional efficiencies for LeasePlan USA clients
LeasePlan USA has hired Phil Schappert as director of remarketing. In his role, Schappert oversees vehicle sales nationwide through the use of innovative sales channels.
“We couldn’t be happier to have Phil on board with us at LeasePlan,” said Tony Blezien, vice president of operations. “His years of experience, coupled with our development of cutting-edge solutions, will continue to enhance the way we do business.”
“I am honored to join the LeasePlan family,” said Schappert. “The company is in the midst of a total transformation, and I consider myself fortunate to be a part of it. LeasePlan has a strong record of getting top dollar for client vehicles. I am excited to be working directly with the teams here to create even more efficiencies in the marketplace and benefit for our clients.”
Schappert has more than 18 years of experience in the remarketing industry, previously holding roles within Primeritus and Community Loans of America. In his prior roles, Schappert successfully increased the per unit sale price while both growing the volume of sales and decreasing the days to sell. His long-term experience in the remarketing industry will serve as a powerful tool within LeasePlan as they continue to look for what’s next in remarketing off-lease vehicles.
