Several new appointments have been announced by Leasys, the mobility solutions and long-term rental group controlled by FCA Bank.

Alberto Grippo (pictured) has been appointed as chief executive officer, while Giacomo Carelli (FCA Bank’s CEO) maintains his role as chairman of the board.

Further organisational changes have been announced in leading roles at Leasys’ international operations. Roberto Bellavia, formerly of Leasys UK, replaces Danny Meulenberghs as the head of Leasys Belgium.

Replacing Bellavia, leadership of Leasys UK is assigned to Sebastiano Fedrigo, who joins from Fiat Chrysler Automobiles UK.

Grippo joined FCA Bank in 2000, with his latest assignment in Madrid where he led the operations of FCA Bank in Spain, Portugal and the successful launch of an operation in Morocco. He also led the implementation of the first European branch of Leasys in Spain.

Grippo’s role will focus on the consolidation of its operations and continued implementation of its internationalisation strategy, which has already led to its expansion into six countries outside of Italy.

Leasys is a wholly-owned company of the FCA Bank Group, a joint venture between Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and Crédit Agricole.

It manages a fleet of more than 215.000 units, one-third of which are commercial vehicles.

Through Clickar, Leasys is also among the top Italian companies in the used corporate auto sales market.
