Blue Chip Leasing, a division of Chesswood Group, appointed Marcelle Newstadt as sole president. Newstadt started with Blue Chip in 2002 and has been directly responsible for the operations of the business over the last 15 years.
“We’re very excited for Marcelle who now takes over sole responsibility for Blue Chip’s continuing growth, after partnering with Ramon Chait, as co-presidents,” said Barry Shafran, Chesswood’s president and CEO. “Marcelle is well known within the Canadian leasing industry and is a highly capable and respected leader.”

“Ramon has made a large contribution to Blue Chip’s success and we thank him for those efforts,” Newstadt said. “I’m committed to driving the continued growth of Blue Chip, along with our excellent team.”
