LeasePlan’s chief financial and risk officer Guus Stoelinga has decided to step down from his position to pursue other opportunities
He has agreed to remain at LeasePlan until his successor has been appointed and the handover process has been completed.
Stoelinga's career at LeasePlan began as finance director at LeasePlan Netherlands and Auto Lease Holland. He went on to hold a number of key positions at LeasePlan Corporation, such as SVP Business Integrations and SVP Corporate Strategy and Development. He was appointed to the managing board in 2007.
LeasePlan CEO Tex Gunning said: “Guus has strengthened our company over the years, particularly during the last decade as a member of the managing board. One of his biggest accomplishments is that he successfully steered LeasePlan through the credit crisis and laid a solid foundation for our next stage of development. He leaves our company in great shape. On behalf of the managing board, I would like to thank him for his valuable contribution.”
Stoelinga said: “I have enjoyed my time at LeasePlan tremendously and I am very proud of what we have achieved as an organisation. I can look back with satisfaction on a career where I led LeasePlan’s global strategic finance, risk management and legal activities. During the past decade I have focused on strengthening LeasePlan’s financial capabilities, ensuring solid risk management and the development of a diversified funding base with my teams, for example with the establishment of LeasePlan Bank in the Netherlands and Germany. Now is the right time for me to leave the company and move on to new challenges.”
