‘An exceptional year of global change, adaptation and resilience’: Leaseurope’s 2020

By Alejandro Gonzalez

The year of Covid-19 was characterised by the trade body meeting its core commitments as well as undertaking an overhaul of external IT communications and deepening its EU lobbying, said Patrick Beselaere, the chairman of the European Federation of Leasing Company Associations. 

In a video statement, Beselaere, the chief executive and global head of ING Leasesaid: We managed to ensure our core priorities were covered, which included overhauling and modernising our communications with the launch of a new website and online member area. 

“On the advocacy front, we significantly elevated our engagement with European regulators at the highest level to ensure our industry is included in supporting mechanisms to alleviate the impact of Covid-19, in addition to working on other priority files.”

Leaseurope is an umbrella body bringing together 46 national associations throughout Europe representing bank-owned, captives and independent lessors as well as long and short-term automotive rental companies.

Annual convention

In 2020 the trade body postponed its regular annual convention and said it plans to host the next event in Cascais, Portugal on 7 & 8 October 2021.

The event is typically held at the same time and place as the Eurofinas Convention of the European consumer credit industry.
