CHANGE IN THE MANAGEMENT OF ARVAL BELGIUM
Laurent Loncke succeeds Alain Yvon as general manager
Alain Yvon, who joined Arval Belgium as general manager in 2016, will continue his career at the Arval headquarters in France, where he is appointed to the position of Chief Data Officer, from July 1, 2020.
Arval would like to thank Alain Yvon for his excellent work in Belgium. He made a decisive contribution to the development of the company for 4 years. It is also important to reveal that during its management, Arval Belgium has become the market benchmark in the field of operational vehicle leasing, with a particular focus on quality of service and customer orientation.
He successfully led the incorporation of GE without forgetting the strong growth of the financed vehicle fleet which went from 52,000 in 2016 to 75,000 in 2019. Alain Yvon also presented new innovative products such as Arval Car Sharing, Arval Bike Lease, Arval Active Link and Arval Mobility Card, and thus paved the way for his successor Laurent Loncke.
After almost 25 years at BNP Paribas Fortis Retail Banking, Laurent Loncke leaves to join Arval Belgium, where he will succeed Alain Yvon as general manager, effective July 1, 2020.
Laurent Loncke has held various positions within the Retail Banking commercial network. In 2010, he was promoted to Commercial Director for Individual Customers, in charge of all sales activities for the Retail Banking market in Belgium.
Laurent Loncke's main mission will be to support and strengthen Arval Belgium in its position and its transition to a full-service mobility provider. Particular emphasis will be placed on accelerating the penetration of electric vehicles in the Arval fleet, the deployment of the private lease offer and the development of alternative mobility products and services. He will obviously also take care of the promotion of the new post-covid offer "The Journey Goes on” launched last week, which aims to meet the new expectations of businesses and individuals in the post-lockdown period Covid-19.
