CONGRATULATIONS to Mike Thompson and his appointment as the new chief operating officer at Leasing Options.
The Manchester leasing broker’s sales & marketing director, and former brand manager, now takes on responsibility for all operational functions for the business. These will be in addition to his previous main focus on sales and marketing, where he has led a number of strategic projects, improving processes and heading up recruitment while the broker also consistently broke new growth records.
Mike has been an instrumental force in driving the business forward over the last couple of years and we wanted to recognise the effort and performance he has given especially through the last 18 months of the pandemic.Nigel Brain, founder, Leasing Options
“After 31 years in the industry, our commitment to our core values of excellent customer service are as important today as they ever were and as chief operating officer, Mike is responsible for ensuring the culture of our business supports this while we continue to grow.”
The new COO role broadens Thompson’s brief to operate more autonomously, and to continue the leasing broker’s drive for record growth.
The company added that it was now looking at further investment to grow the Leasing Options brand and its business.
