Leasys, FCA Bank’s contract hire and mobility company has taken over FCA Fleet Services UK, which will now be known as Leasys UK.
Leasys was founded in Italy, and manages a fleet of 150,000 vehicles. It is fully owned by FCA Bank, a joint venture between Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) and French bank Crédit Agricole.
LeasysUK was founded as FCA Fleet Services UK in 1996, and provides contract hire and leasing for corporate clients, as well as personal contract hire.
The service has a fleet size of over 9,000 vehicles, and will be managed by Roberto Bellavia, appointed head of Leasys UK. Bellavia previously worked in a contract hire company and has also held roles in manufacturing.
Earlier this year, FCA Group appointed fleet support agency ROI to support its fleet offering. Leasy’s fleet includes many FCA Group brands.
Alex Hughes managing director of FCA Bank Group UK, said: “The launch marks a further step change in the business, broadening its appeal across the UK fleet market, from pan-European corporate fleets, to serving the FCA dealer network and supporting businesses across the UK to find the right leasing solutions.”
