Zeist, NL December 18, 2014 - Business Lease Group has named Philip Aarsman Managing Director of Fleet Management Services / Business Lease Romania.
Philip Aarsman, Managing DirectorPhilip Aarsman (54) has been appointed Managing Director of FMS, the Romanian Leasing company in Bucharest that was recently acquired.He was previously a member of the board of Business Lease Group, where he had been responsible for Business Development since 2007.
Before that he oversaw Central European activities for Business Lease for over seven years, which means that this region is familiar territory for him.
In his new job, he will be managing FMS as it transitions into an International Business Lease organization.
The departure of Philip Aarsman for Romania has left an opening that will be filled by Stijn Otten (30), who will take over his duties at Business Lease Group as Director of Innovation and Business Development.
For this, Philip Aarsman, managing director at Business Lease, thinks leasing companies like his are the best place for clients to turn."Compared to the so-called 'captives' (car companies) we are completely independent," he says.
"Operational leasing is getting more and more accepted as a perfect tool for car fleet management," observes Aarsman, who feels this is based on the positive references of satisfied clients over the last seven years."In the Czech Republic we have more than 200 clients relying their car fleet to our management, many of them international companies," he says.
Philip Aarsman, managing director of competing Business Lease, shares the prevailing opinion: "Lease Plan, being a member of the VW group, will have a big influence on the rest of the car market, but how exactly, I can't predict."
The reason for the increased interest in fleet leasing is simple: operational leasing continues to grow briskly at financial leasing's expense. (Companies paying cash outright remain stable, helped by state companies, which most often choose this option.) "The share of operational leasing is still relatively small, but growth is between 20-30% each year," says Aarsman of Business Lease.
"Due to some big tenders in 2004, our car fleet has grown by over 60%," says Aarsman, from Business Lease.His company, along with Lease Plan, won jointly in a tender for Èeský Telecom, which chose operational leasing for the first time as part of its restructuring effort in preparation of its pending privatization.
Philip AarsmanKnowledge is power - and in fleet management it's a distinct selling point.With company fleets getting larger, and clients demanding more up-to-the-minute statistics on their cars, the reporting involved with full-service and operational leasing has moved from paper to computer screen. "Information technology is one of the pillars to be successful in the fleet management segment," claims Philip Aarsman, managing director of Business Lease.For its part, Business Lease employs the widely popular Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software, which is used by businesses around the world."Our software provides the opportunity to deliver a constant quality measurement," Aarsman says, and clients can also log in to monitor operational costs.
"The real future is hydrogen," Aarsman asserts, referring to the ongoing development of fuel-cell cars, where a chemical reaction, usually between hydrogen and oxygen, creates electricity for the motor.
