I am pleased to announce that the Supervisory Board has, in addition to his position as a Managing Board member, taken the unanimous decision to appoint Jochen Sutor responsible for LeasePlan’s risk and compliance functions as Chief Risk Officer, a position he has been fulfilling on an ad interim basis in addition to his role as Chief Financial Officer of LeasePlan Group. Mr Sutor has extensive experience in the Risk area and this was greatly evidenced as he supported the company through the past challenging period. In addition, Mr Sutor has highly demanded experience in European Central Bank (ECB) regulation, which is a critical capability in view of LeasePlan’s upcoming change of supervision from the Dutch Central Bank to the ECB. The Supervisory Board has also appointed Toine van Doremalen as the successor of Jochen Sutor as CFO. In his current position as CFO Car-as-a-Service, Toine was already responsible for the greater part of the financial management of LeasePlan and has previously performed the tasks of CFO on an ad interim basis. Taken together, these changes will ensure that the current high-performing team remains intact and that Jochen and Toine will be able to excel in their new roles from day 1. I look forward to continuing to work with them both.
