Leasing Broker named Platinum Partner by global company

Posted 11th December 2020

A thriving car and van leasing firm – already in the running for a string of national and regional awards – has now received a prestigious Platinum franchisee status.

Northampton-based Silverstone Fleet Management has received the LeasePlan Network Platinum Franchisee Status for 2021 from LeasePlan – the world’s largest vehicle leasing and fleet management operation. 

The franchisee status is only given to a small number of UK businesses and recognises both their performance levels and commitment to excellence. 

Silverstone Fleet Management managing director Scott Norville said: “We work with some of the UK’s leading funders in the vehicle leasing sector, including LeasePlan.

“To have been granted LeasePlan Platinum Partner status on the back of the high volume of vehicles we have leased during the past 12 months would have been incredible in any year. However, to have achieved this during a worldwide pandemic – and all the challenges that came with that – is nothing short of astounding.

“Our team has worked incredibly hard to become a Platinum Partner and this achievement recognises the unrivalled customer service that we give to both business and personal customers looking to lease cars and vans. 

“Our partnerships with four of the UK’s top finance providers means we can provide exceptional market leading offers and support to our clients. We also have a fifth partner coming on board in early 2021 and a further two new members joining the team.”

Scott launched Silverstone Fleet Management from a small office in his sister’s company eight years ago. Today it has a team of eight and operates from a 800sq ft barn conversion office which underwent an extensive refurbishment earlier this year.

The family-run firm also has an impressive collection of online reviews and a growing hoard of awards. 

In recent years it has won nine awards and it is currently in the running for six awards, including Northamptonshire Business Excellence Awards, a Northamptonshire SME Business Award and a National SME Business Award. The winners of the awards will be revealed in the New Year.
