In 1964, Henk Bosman started Vehicle Lease and Management Services with no cars and a modest promise that he "might be able to add a few more in time."
Bosman surpassed that prediction as he took Vehicle Lease and Management Services to a position of national prominence with more than 80,000 vehicles. It was purchased by U.S. Leasing in 1972 and became a subsidiary of the parent company.
After the firm because a subsidiary, it entered an expansive growth pattern that was spurred by new business and the addition of several other leasing companies.
Bosman remained at the company's help throughout, and under his direction, USFL gained a national reputation for its leadership in the area of cost-controlling products nad services.
Further, Bosman established the company's Preferred Rate Program, Customer Reporting System, and Personal Computer Information System.
He retired from U.S. Leasing in 1989. Bosman passed away Aug. 13, 2009 at the age of 80.
