SEP 8, 2017 - 6:20 am
NETSOL Technologies, a global business services and enterprise application solutions provider, appointed former Toyota Leasing executive Henry Tolentino to its advisory board, effective September 6, 2017.
Tolentino brings more than 30 years of experience in the auto finance industry working with global manufacturers such as Toyota and General Motors. Prior to joining NETSOL’s advisory board, Tolentino held several executive positions at Toyota Leasing, including most recently as president from 2006 to 2014 and then served as an advisor from 2015 to 2016. Prior to Toyota Leasing, Tolentino spent more than 10 years with Toyota Motor Credit, USA. He began his career in the auto finance industry with GMAC.
“I am excited and honored to be part of NETSOL’s advisory board,” said Tolentino. “NETSOL is a global leader in providing innovative technology to auto captive finance companies and by asking me to join the company, it further validates the company’s vision to be a thought leader in its space by bringing together industry expertise at the highest level. I look forward to working closely with the company, its customers and prospects to help bring disruptive solutions, change and innovation to the market.”
Tolentino joined former BMW Group, Mercedes and Tesla Motors executive Georg Bauer, who was appointed to NETSOL’s advisory board on September 1, 2017. The advisory board was recently formed with the goal of providing non-binding strategic advice to its executive management team. This non-voting, non-fiduciary body will support and advise on the company’s efforts in business development, strategic planning and business operations.
“On behalf of everyone at our organization, I would like to welcome Henry to the NETSOL team,” said company Founder, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Najeeb Ghauri. “Henry’s industry profile and C-level experience working for Toyota Leasing, one of the biggest auto manufacturers and captive finance companies, speaks for itself. I am confident his deep global network and strategic insights will help to drive long-term profitable growth across our business.”
