Frans Jansen joined the asset finance consulting and services firm Invigors EMEA, the European arm of The Alta Group, as senior consultant in The Netherlands.
Jansen brings more than 25 years of pan-European finance experience in the captive and vendor finance markets. Fluent in four languages and with experience of American, Belgian, Dutch, English, French, German, Korean, Swedish and Spanish companies, Jansen has built excellent relationships at all levels with international financial institutions which will enable Jansen to translate the requirements of Invigors clients into tailor made finance offerings.
Prior to joining Invigors, Jansen served as vice president of Doosan Infracore Financial Solutions, where he managed a small team to operate a virtual captive operation covering 26 countries. From inception, the business grew by over 500% without increasing headcount. He also previously held senior positions at Siemens Financial Services, Heller Financial, AT&T Capital, Central Hispano Leasing, Chase, Svenska Finans, Econocom and Amstel Lease.
“Joining Invigors is a bit like ‘coming home’ as I shall now be reunited with six European/North American colleagues with whom I have worked during various stages of my career,” said Jansen. “During the past eight years with Doosan Infracore, I know for sure that substantial value can be created for both OEM’s (in Construction Equipment and other segments) and their dealer networks by offering a range of bespoke financial products in their wholesale, retail and rental activities.”
Chris Boobyer, senior partner at Invigors, said, “Frans brings a rich seam of OEM experience and expertise in asset management and remarketing, gathered over his many years in both vendor finance and direct leasing. He is an acknowledged industry leader and will help us bridge the gap between high-level asset management strategies and the structuring of customer transactions through his deep understanding of systems, processes and organisational delivery. We know that his skills and experience will further strengthen the Invigors team in Europe and add value to our international colleagues in The Alta Group. We are delighted that Frans has joined us.”
