Finance & Leasing Association Gets New Chairman

Chris Sutton of Black Horse Consumer and Motor Finance has been elected chairman of the Finance & Leasing Association (FLA).

He takes over the chairmanship from David Betteley, director of financial services at Jaguar Land Rover, who is standing down as FLA chairman after three years.

Sutton said: "I am very grateful to David Betteley for his strong leadership of the FLA over recent years, and I am conscious that this is an exciting time to take over from him as Chairman of the FLA. I look forward to working with the FLA team to make sure our voice is heard by the next Government and by our regulators, so that our members have the best possible business environment in which to serve their customers and so contribute to the economic recovery."
