The Leasing Foundation names 30 under 30 – the rising stars in asset finance

The Leasing Foundation today announced who has made it into its inaugural 30 under 30 index.

The index, which will be published annually, seeks to celebrate the most influential and highest achieving individuals in the asset finance industry.  Representing 22 different lenders or service providers, they are all making an impact in the sector.  In some cases, with a focussed commitment to business growth and professional excellence, they are reinventing the world of asset finance. 

The rising stars, all who are aged 30 and under, received their accolade at the Asset Finance Connect awards evening last night. 

Nathan Mollett, director at the Leasing Foundation said: “The Leasing Foundation 30 under 30 index celebrates the individuals that are guiding the industry forward.  We were inundated with nominations, all of which were of an incredibly high standard, which made the judging process very tough.  In the end, we had to focus on looking at the qualities and the skills required to prosper in today’s competitive and fast-changing environment.  It’s a privilege to shine a light on a diverse and impressive mix of next-generation leaders who are shaping the future of business finance.  They all have great careers ahead of them.

Mike Randall, chair of the Leasing Foundation commented: “These 30 ambitious professionals demonstrate the talent, drive and leadership to steer the asset finance industry through the next stage of evolution and disruption. It is heartening to see our industry in such safe hands for the coming years.”
