ALPHARETTA, GA – LeasePlan USA, the premium service provider of vehicle leasing and fleet management solutions, is pleased to announce that David Dahm, CFO, has been named Atlanta Business Chronicle’s CFO of the Year Awards finalist.

The awards, presented by Atlanta Business Chronicle and the Association of Corporate Growth (ACG), honor the city’s most outstanding financial stewards for some of the most important companies and organizations. Each year, the Chronicle’s editorial committee reviews nominations for seven award categories in conjunction with the ACG, which assembles an expert panel of judges. Dahm is one of two award finalists in the Private Company/Large category.

“Dave’s work as CFO over the last three years has been extraordinary, particularly because of his skillful navigation of LeasePlan, a very capital intensive business, through the financial crisis. He has also become an invaluable asset to the fleet industry as a subject matter expert on the upcoming accounting convergence,” said Michael A. Pitcher, president and CEO.

Pitcher added, “Dave is generous with his time, his talent and has a philanthropic heart, and those are traits far beyond the balance sheet. I am extremely proud to work alongside him and congratulate him on this esteemed honor.”

The winners will be announced at the awards breakfast on June 3, 2011, at the Hyatt Regency Atlanta.
