Tex Gunning, CEO of LeasePlan, said:

“I would like to thank Erik for his tremendous contributions to LeasePlan. During his tenure, Erik grew our Dutch business significantly and pioneered its expansion into the fast-growing SME and Private lease segments. He was also a champion of the sustainability agenda across LeasePlan, developing our full package EV solution, and was instrumental in the launch of CarNext.com, Europe’s leading online marketplace for high-quality used cars, in the Dutch market. On behalf of all LeasePlanners, I would like to wish Erik all the best with his plans for the future.”

Erik Henstra said:

“LeasePlan is defined by the people working at LeasePlan. I have had the fantastic opportunity to work for 25 years with fun people, who are highly professional and focused on servicing our customers, together with our partners. Being at the forefront of driving our business and industry to sustainable and safe mobility has been extremely rewarding. Time to move on… with a big thanks to my LeasePlan colleagues worldwide and especially the great team at LeasePlan Netherlands.”
