SELECT Car Leasing, the Reading based leasing broker, has expanded the number of its Appointed Representatives (ARs) to five with the appointment of three new brokers.

The latest Select ARs are Genus Leasing (Bury St Edmunds), Select Vehicle Leasing (Manchester) and Richard Wileman Associates (Burton-upon-Trent).

All three will rebrand to Select Car Leasing.

The Select AR programme began in April 2020 with established broker Cameron Clarke Leasing in Preston moving to AR status. More recently south Wales van specialist, Leasewell, became a Select AR.

We have built our strategy to be different to other AR broker programmes out there. It’s about building the Select Car Leasing brand. From a customer perspective it won’t feel any different contacting one of ARs or contacting us at our Reading HQ.

Conway added that he expected to max out the company’s AR programme at seven or eight. Select Car Leasing also provides fleet management company Grosvenor Leasing with a personal lease facility as part of an agreement established a the back end of 2019.

Myself and my co-director James O’Malley feel the partnerships we have agreed represent fantastic news for Select Car Leasing, our new ARs and for the car leasing industry as a whole. The past year has been hugely challenging for many businesses within the automotive trade and we believe these agreements will not only further the Select name in the country, but provide a vital safeguard to many leasing businesses, who will now be operating under the Select umbrella.

Corporate side expands, too, with more staff

Select Car Leasing is also broadening its reach into business car leasing with a fleet solutions division for corporate entities of all sizes. Launched last year in partnership with ODO’s fleet management facility, Conway said that from 01 February, the fleet solutions department will grow from one to five people.

“In total, with our new ARs and the fleet solutions department, we expect 30,000 vehicle deliveries in 2021, up from 18,000 in 2020,” added Conway.
