Vehicle leasing and mobility solutions provider Arval announced the appointment of Dan Boiangiu as the company’s director of the International Business Office (IBO), according to Arval.
Boiangiu joined Arval in 2006 and became general manager of its entity in Romania in 2014, after a successful career as commercial director. As the new director of IBO, he drives a unique, multicultural and multilingual team of international fleet management experts, to accompany Arval’s 250 large strategic international clients and the future ones.
Boiangiu replaces Alessandro Pigazzi, who was promoted to retail director of Arval Italy, the company said. These appointments were implemented effective Jan. 1, 2021.
Arval IBO accounts for a very large share of the total Arval fleet. Thanks to a 25-year successful cooperation between Arval and its partners within the Element-Arval Global Alliance, IBO’s customers can benefit from an extended geographical scale, expert advice, digital tools, global reporting, harmonised service delivery and an account team with a single point of contact, according to Arval.
Boiangiu reports to Bart Beckers, Arval chief commercial officer, and succeeds to Pigazzi.
Pigazzi, who became director of Arval International Business Office in 2016 will now report to Stefan Majtan, general manager of Arval Italy, in his new role as retail director of Arval Italy. Pigazzi is also joining the company’s executive committee.
“Within the Arval Beyond strategy, international customers are positioned as one of our 4 key customer segments with the objective of consolidating our leadership in the international full service leasing market. I want to thank Alessandro for his commitment to this mission and I am fully confident that Dan’s outstanding management skills and deep knowledge of our core business will help IBO reach new heights,” said Bart Beckers, Arval chief commercial officer.
