Leasing Options has announced the appointment of Mike Thompson as its new Chief Operating Officer.
As Chief Operating Officer, Thompson takes on responsibility for all operational functions for the business, in addition to his previous main focus on sales and marketing.
Thompson previously held the positions of Brand Manager and then Sales & Marketing Director for the 31 year-old business, Leasing Options, and in recent years has led a number of strategic projects, improving processes and heading up recruitment.
In this time, Leasing Options has cemented its position as the market leader in the industry and has recorded record growth, consistently for several years.
Nigel Brain, founder of Leasing Options said: “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.
“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 role broadens Thompson’s brief to operate more autonomously, to continue to drive the record growth onwards and upwards.
As a result of the continued record growth, Leasing Options is now looking at further investment to grow the brand and business.
