George Ashworth, managing director of Aldermore Asset Finance, has been appointed to the board of Leaseeurope and is also to become chair of the asset finance division of the Finance and Leasing Association (FLA) in July.

Leaseeurope is a trade body representing the European leasing and automotive rental industry and brings together 44 associations throughout Europe.

Ashworth (pictured) said: “I’m delighted to be taking-on these important roles at such an interesting and challenging time for the asset finance industry.

“Businesses in Britain and across Europe depend on leasing and other forms of asset finance to enable them to acquire new plant and equipment and, as we look for the European economy to pull out of recession, it is important that manufacturers can rely on a robust leasing and asset finance sector.”
