Paul Caunter, director at Ignition Asset Finance, has become a Fellow of the Leasing Foundation, the organisation announced.

The Leasing Foundation Fellowship is an invitation-only group, and seeks to recognise professionals who have played an active role in advancing the leasing industry.

Caunter has spent eight years heading Ignition, and spent the prior 15 years at a corporate bank. Earlier this year, Caunter joined Falmouth University as an associate lecturer, helping in the development and delivery of a new MA in Leasing and Asset Finance.

Caunter said: “I’m honoured to have been invited to join the Leasing Foundation Fellowship, and will continue to do all that I can to help the Foundation support and develop the industry.”
