BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions, European Lessor of the Year

BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions has been named European Lessor of the Year at the 2011 Leasing Life Awards ceremony, one of the major events for the European leasing industry that took place in Munich.

A panel of independent judges recognised BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions' ability to strengthen the leasing industry as a whole through continual signing of new business, through forging new vendor agreements across diverse sectors, and through perpetual innovation in its operations and offerings.

BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions' anticipation to meet new regulatory requirements, while confirming its continued commitment to European equipment leasing, convinced decisively judges to award BNP Paribas' leasing subsidiary.

According to Didier Chappet, CEO of BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions, “this prize recognises our staff commitment to support our customers' development, in a tough environment marked by new regulatory constraints. It shows that we made the right strategic decisions over the past few years and encourages us to stay as proactive and attentive to market evolutions in a vital and challenging field of the financial services”.
