The Finance & Leasing Association (FLA) has appointed Mike Randall as a board director, effective from January 2022.

He is currently the CEO of Simply Asset Finance and Chair of the Leasing Foundation.

Randall (pictured here) has over 35 years’ experience in the asset finance sector and is passionate about encouraging cross-sector collaboration which he believes will help all small and medium enterprises across the UK grow and prosper.

Stephen Haddrill, director general of the FLA said:

“We are very pleased to have Mike join our Board. His knowledge of the market is exemplary and will be much valued by colleagues.

Mike Randall, said:

“Having been involved with the FLA for many years, it is an honour to join the board at this pivotal time for our industry. I look forward to joining the team in their work to drive value for customers.”

In November, the FLA appointed Rebecca McNeil as its Chair, marking the first time in its almost 30-year history that a woman will occupy the role. She succeeds Richard Jones, who has held this post since 2017, the Association said.
