High-profile departures from LeasePlan's Board

LeasePlan has announced two departures from its Managing Board, effective immediately. The changes follow – and are likely related to – the company's aborted attempt at an IPO in early October.  

By mutual agreement, Gijsbert de Zoeten and Marco van Kalleveen have resigned from their Board positions.

Mr De Zoeten (pictured left) joined LeasePlan in 2016 as Senior Vice President Finance before becoming Chief Financial Officer in 2017. He successfully transformed LeasePlan Finance and played a vital role in the company's recent strategic review.

Mr Van Kalleveen (pictured right) also joined LeasePlan in 2016, as Chief Operating Officer for Europe. He was not just responsible for LeasePlan's European business, but also central to the implementation of its Power of One LeasePlan operational excellence programme.

Transition process
“On behalf of the Supervisory Board, I would like to thank Gijsbert and Marco for their significant contributions to LeasePlan,” said Jos Streppel, Chairman of the Supervisory Board. “We wish them every success in their future endeavours.”

Both Gijsbert de Zoeten and Marco van Kalleveen will remain available to support the transition process.
