New manager for EURO-Leasing GmbH

Hans Ketterl succeeds Ralf Faust as Chairman of the Management Board of MAN's own specialists for commercial vehicle leasing and fleet management.

Hans Ketterl (51) is to take over the chairmanship of the Management Board of EURO-Leasing GmbH (Sittensen) with effect from April 1, 2012. He succeeds Ralf Faust, who by mutual agreement is leaving for another company in the commercial vehicles branch. EURO-Leasing, a wholly-owned subsidiary of MAN Truck & Bus AG, is one of the leading companies in commercial-vehicle leasing, currently has a fleet of around 3,500 trucks and 9,500 semi-trailers and operates the international service brand MAN Rental.

Ketterl is a trained vehicle mechanic and logistics specialist with a degree in business economics. He joined MAN in 1993 as a Sales representative for commercial vehicles. Amongst other activities he helped set up the MAN Center Berlin-Lichtenberg. Between 2003 and 2010 Ketterl managed sales of trucks for the MAN Truck & Bus Center Berlin, after which he took on responsibility for sales of VW commercial vehicles within MAN Center Berlin.

"EURO-Leasing has made a name for itself over the past few years, particularly in Germany, not least thanks to Ralf Faust and his know-how, uncompromising customer orientation and flexibility. Recognised commercial vehicles specialist Hans Ketterl will write the next chapter of this success story for Europe outside Germany, in cooperation with the MAN Sales Organisation," explains Dr Frank Hiller, Director of Marketing, Sales and Services for MAN Truck & Bus AG.

Ketterl is married with two daughters.
