RICHARD Schooling, who was the CEO of Alphabet GB when the business first launched its broker channel in 2014, is to leave his post at Alphabet International.

Schooling, who departs at the end of 2020, was the company’s global chief commercial officer and a member of the board. He said:

“I look back on my years in the Group with huge pride, and I’m very happy how Alphabet has come from a being a ‘start up’ to a company now present in 31 markets operating a portfolio of over 700,000 vehicles.

“I will leave Alphabet International on the best possible terms and I have passed on my best wishes to the management team for the future.”

Schooling first joined BMW Group in 1997 as a part of the original management team that helped first establish Alphabet as a multi-marque leasing company.

There then followed a number of roles in Alphabet and BMW Financial Services, until Richard was appointed CEO of Alphabet GB in 2011.

In 2016, Schooling headed to Munich to join the Alphabet International Management Board.

I have known Richard for many years and would like to thank him for his invaluable contribution to the BMW Group over the past 23 years. I wish him every success for the future.

Marco Lessacher, CEO, Alphabet International GmbH
