MADISON, WI - ALD Automotive, one of the largest leasing and fleet management companies, announced a strategic alliance with Innovative Funding Services (IFS) for its US subsidiary.

Working with ALD Automotive USA, a full service commercial leasing and fleet management company, IFS will assist in providing financing for the thousands of vehicles they remarket every year.

ALD Automotive USA is owned by Société Générale and part of ALD Automotive Group Holdings, one of the largest leasing and fleet management companies, presently managing over 786,512 vehicles across 39 countries. By providing a consultative approach they are able to offer the market appropriate fleet management services tailored to the client’s exact needs.

Miel Horsten, CEO of ALD, said, “Our clients often have unique requirements within their organizations when remarketing their fleet units and working with IFS allows us the ability to offer a full spectrum of solutions to meet those needs. Even in tight credit markets IFS provides competitive programs, and offers service levels second to none.”

In addition to fleet management, ALD Automotive provides services such as vehicle acquisition, fleet administration, cost monitoring, maintenance management, fuel card, license & registration, accident management, a website with specialized e-tools designed to assist our clients in managing their fleet with ease, remarketing (both auction and driver sales which is where IFS comes in), and total fleet outsourcing. They are able to customize these services and programs to fit each client’s needs resulting in no two accounts being handled the same because no two companies are the same.

Tim Janssen, president of IFS, said, “The focus that ALD Automotive USA puts on servicing clients is exactly in sync with our philosophy and the way we work with lessors when remarketing their vehicles. We provide individual purchasers of these vehicles with personal service, a convenient process and often 100% financing.” Continuing, Tim shared, “With our broad funding resources we can stay at the top of our game and offer a cutting edge approach to driver sale financing.”
