Newly appointed CEO Jeffrey Schlesinger will lead LeasePlan USA as it sets its sights on the future
LeasePlan USA announces Jeffrey Schlesinger as the company’s new president and chief executive officer. He comes to LeasePlan with 30 years of financial services experience, the last eight years in fleet industry leadership.
As LeasePlan USA’s new president and CEO, Schlesinger brings extensive experience in advising local and global clients on long-term fleet strategies, mergers and acquisitions, and project financing.
Schlesinger’s previous role was senior vice president and managing director of GE Fleet Services, where he was responsible for global initiatives, strategic planning and international joint ventures.
Schlesinger joins LeasePlan as the company releases strong annual results for 2016, marked by a 7 percent year-on-year increase in underlying net result. LeasePlan has also announced plans to unlock the full potential of the global group and deliver more value for customers.
“It’s a new day at LeasePlan USA, and I’m so excited to be a part of this family and lead this transformation,” said Schlesinger.
Schlesinger succeeds Mike Pitcher, who announced his retirement at the end of 2016.
