Greg Buckland is LeasePlan USA's new CIO

Greg Buckland, former ThyssenKrupp executive, has been appointed to lead IT at LeasePlan USA. Matt Patterson has been appointed to lead the legal and HR functions for the company.

As Chief Information Officer (CIO), Mr. Buckland (pictured) will manage all aspects of LeasePlan USA's IT functions and ensure delivery of all IT services as required for both internal users and customers. He will not only oversee tech activities in the U.S., but also in additional markets, including Brazil, Canada, India and Mexico. 

“As LeasePlan prepares to deliver What’s Next to its customers through an ‘Any Car, Anytime, Anywhere’ service, it was necessary to select an individual with a wealth of experience – from IT strategy planning and transformation, to data warehousing, programming and artificial intelligence,” said Jeff Schlesinger, president and CEO of LeasePlan USA.

LeasePlan USA also recently appointed Matt Patterson to the position of senior vice president, general counsel and secretary. Mr. Patterson will be responsible for both the legal and human resources functions of the organization, as well as secretarial functions for the LeasePlan USA Board of Directors.
