Element Fleet Management Establishes New Leasing Hub in Ireland

Element Fleet Management established a centralized leasing function in Dublin and plans to create more than 70 new jobs in the process. The project is being supported by the Irish government through IDA Ireland.

“Centralizing accountabilities for our leasing function into a global leasing center of excellence allows us to optimize related operations, drive greater strategic focus and ultimately further elevate our clients’ leasing experience,” Laura Dottori-Attanasio, president and CEO of Element Fleet Management, said. “Ireland presents an ideal environment for Element to expand operations because of its rich pool of professionals who have specialized knowledge and expertise in the leasing industry.”

Element’s operation in Dublin will be overseen by Chris Gittens, executive vice president of leasing, who previously ran Element’s Canadian strategic relationships business unit focused on ‘mega’ fleets and, most recently, was the company’s chief information officer.

“I warmly welcome Element Fleet Management’s commitment to create 70 jobs in Dublin,” Simon Coveney, Ireland’s minister for enterprise, trade and employment, said. “As a global leader in fleet management, Element’s investment in the region is a testament to our welcoming economy and to the specialized and skilled workforce we have in Dublin and across the country. I wish Element sincere and continued success as they open their new location.”

“Element Fleet Management’s decision to establish a new leasing hub in Dublin highlights Ireland’s attractiveness as a business destination, boasting a massive pool of talent and robust infrastructure,” Michael Lohan, CEO of IDA Ireland, said. “This decision to create 70 new jobs in Dublin underscores Ireland’s reputation as a leader in the leasing industry and Ireland’s success in cultivating an excellent business environment to attract investment from Canada and beyond. I’d like to wish Element Fleet Management every success in their expansion into Ireland and assure the leadership team of IDA Ireland’s continued support and collaboration.”
