Leasing Foundation appoints new chair
The Leasing Foundation is delighted to announce that the new chair of the board of directors of the foundation will be Carl D’Ammassa of Aldermore. Carl is group managing director of business finance at Aldermore, joining the business from Hitachi in 2013.
“I am delighted to take up the role of chair of the Leasing Foundation. I see the foundation as driving towards more effective development of the industry – not just in terms of diversity, but in terms of more successful careers for all in the industry. The foundation’s educational programmes are excellent and will help build a sustainable industry at a time when many financial services institutions are not effectively investing in people. I’m looking forward to working with the foundation to further unify the industry as a strong and vibrant community of professionals”.
Andrew Denton, Leasing Foundation CEO said:
“We warmly welcome Carl’s decision to step into the important role of chair of the foundation. We know that with his support we will continue to grow the Foundation’s influence by shaping our programmes around the needs of the industry and working with other bodies to benefit the whole of the industry”.
Carl’s appointment as chair is one of several new appointments including former Close Brothers Asset Finance CEO Mike Randall to the foundation’s board; and the appointment of new governors of the foundation including Jo Davis (Locke Lord), Fran Watson (Siemens Financial Services), Gavin Wraith-Carter (Hitachi Capital Business Finance), Gabriele D’Uva (GE Capital) and John Chadwick (Acquis Insurance Management). The foundation also continues to invite new Fellows to the Foundation including most recently Stephen Jenkins (Tower Leasing), Colin Tourick (International Auto Finance Network) and Sean Read (Syscap).
