With something this significant, it’s critical we practice the financial discipline necessary to focus on smart growth, compliance and always keep the customers first,” said Jeff Schlesinger, president and CEO of LeasePlan USA.
“Our path forward will include new partnerships, along with investment in people, products and systems,” Schlesinger continues. “We specifically sought a financial leader with the experience and discipline to oversee these activities and lead us through our transformation. Scott is the right person for the task.”

In addition, its forward-thinking leaders are taking the company on a journey, which includes investing in the business, adding innovative new service offerings and technology. I am thrilled to work with such visionaries and excited to oversee the fiscal activities and lead us through this next phase of LeasePlan.”
