Leigh, who is standing down for personal reasons, said he felt that it was now time for someone new to ‘take ACFO forward and ensure the continuing success of the organisation in serving its members in an ever-changing fleet market’.
Leigh had been an ACFO director for 11 years. He is also head of car fleet services at PricewaterhouseCoopers.
He said: ‘I have enjoyed my time as an ACFO director and as chairman, during which I have seen the organisation change and grow so that it is now deservedly the premier organisation for fleet operators. I wish the organisation every success in the future.’
Fellow ACFO director Stewart Whyte, the organisation’s public relations officer, said: ‘The board and the membership at large is very grateful to Tony for all the work he has undertaken on behalf of ACFO as it continues to expand and increase its sphere of influence on behalf of fleet operators. We wish Tony all the very best for the future.’
