Leasys continues its international growth process with the opening of two new branches.
Rome, 11 December 2020 – Leasys, a subsidiary of FCA Bank and a 360-degree mobility leader, firms up its expansion strategy in Europe by announcing its entry in Denmark and Portugal. This is a further step in the Company’s internationalization process, which started in 2017 and saw the establishment of operations in 8 countries, with its leading-edge mobility solutions and exclusive services driven by digital innovation.
Under the leadership of Bruno Lourenço in Portugal and of Niels Bjørn Jacobsen in Denmark, Leasys will bring its “from one minute to a lifetime” mobility services also in these two new European countries which, like the other, will also be involved in the fleet electrification process and the opening of the Leasys Mobility Stores, the mobility shops where all the Leasys and FCA Bank products are showcased.
Leasys is ready to meet head on the challenge posed by the expansion in Europe, thanks to a long experience gained in Italy and abroad, which led it to develop and manage a fleet of 350,000 vehicles and over 70,000 customers throughout Europe.
A market leader in Italy by number of car registrations, with a market share of 21% and ranking among the top 10 mobility providers in Spain and France, Leasys aims to be operational in 13 countries by 2021, with a total fleet of 400,000 vehicles and increasing the number of stores to 1,500.
“Portugal and Denmark are two additional signposts in our broader strategy to achieve a strong expansion in Europe at a crucial time for the rental market”, said Alberto Grippo, CEO of Leasys. “Our goal is to consolidate our role as a key mobility player in Europe, improving further our competitiveness and our offering of innovative products, so as to meet better our international customers’ requirements”.
