LeasePlan announced changes to its managing board following the leave of its chief risk officer and chief strategic finance and investor relations officer.
Franca Vossen, chief risk officer, and Yolanda Paulissen, chief strategic finance and investor relations officer, will leave the fleet management company by mutual agreement, according to LeasePlan.
During her tenure, Vossen was as Board Member directly responsible for the fundamental overhaul and further professionalization of LeasePlan’s risk management, according to LeasePlan. She led the establishment of a state-of-the-art data engineering and data science organization, established and implemented a new corporate social responsibility strategy for the company, and has been key in managing successful relationships with regulators and partners. She also enhanced the company secretary and regulatory affairs functions.
Throughout her time at LeasePlan, Paulissen was as board member instrumental to managing the strategic development of the company’s strong and diversified funding structure, including LeasePlan Bank, securing under her leadership capitalization and financing in excess of 15 billion euro over the past three years alone, LeasePlan said. Over the years, she has been intimately involved with strategic transactions and established strong relationships with lenders and investors for LeasePlan.
Following the departure of Franca Vossen and Yolanda Paulissen, the LeasePlan Supervisory Board will conduct a review of LeasePlan’s governance structure, the outcome of which will be communicated in due course.
