The International Automotive Remarketers Alliance (IARA) presented its 2013 IARA Special Recognition award to Mike Pitcher, president and CEO of LeasePlan USA, for his contributions in giving back.
The award was presented to Pitcher at the 2013 Summer Roundtable by Dave Alfonso, remarketing manager for KIA and Industry Recognition and Awards committee member for the IARA.
Pitcher was presented the award for his leadership and support of a LeasePlan USA outreach program called LeasePlan Cares. The program is comprised of LeasePlan employees and generates funds to support numerous charities, the major one being the Atlanta Children's Shelter. Pitcher is a driving force behind LeasePlan Cares, according to the IARA, and has played a major role in the many success stories at the Atlanta Children's Shelter, as well as the other charities the program supports.
