Slater brings with her over 25 years of fleet and leasing experience, including her most recently role as LeasePlan’s operations and business development director and previously brand director where she led both the public sector and large corporate areas of the business.

She joins the UK fleet and leasing arm of Daimler Mobility AG ahead of the rebrand to Athlon in October, following Daimler’s 2016 acquisition of the European leasing firm from the Dutch firm Rabobank.

Slater commented: “Joining DFM as CCO at a time where there is such a focus on their brand and growth strategy is the perfect opportunity for me to continue my career in the leasing and fleet management sector. I am looking forward to working with the team to deliver great service to our customers and grow our UK business.”
