Select Car Leasing has launched a landmark partnership with Cameron Clarke Leasing. The new partnership will see Cameron Clarke operate under the Select brand and gain access to Select’s bespoke CRM, market-leading website and some of the most competitive rates in the marketplace – whilst continuing to operate out of their head office in Preston as an official representative of the Select brand.
The partnership comes during a period of continued growth for the car leasing market, bucking the trend of a largely cautious new car market. In new data released by the BVRLA, there was a 6% Year-on-Year boost for the leasing market – with over 1.9million private lease cars on the road in the UK today.
The agreement was made between Select and Cameron Clarke at the turn of the year, and will formally begin in mid-March.
Commenting on the launch, Graham Conway, Head of Strategic Development at Select Car Leasing, said:
“We are very pleased to announce an official partnership with Cameron Clarke Leasing. Personal car leasing is growing significantly in the UK, with lease cars continuing to have an increased presence on the roads in 2020. We feel this new partnership represents an exciting opportunity to further accelerate the growth of leasing and give many more people the opportunity to drive a brand new car at an affordable monthly price.”
“Over the last few months we have been in continued discussion with Cameron Clarke and both myself and the directors [Mark Tongue and James O’ Malley], strongly believe they represent a great fit to join us at Select. They have a long, proud history of providing first-class service to their customers and are one of the most highly regarded businesses in the industry.”
“The partnership matches our ambitious expansion plan across the UK, and we see it as another important step in increasing the stature of Select Car Leasing and providing major visibility and representation for the Select brand in the North West of England.”
“We are confident we have secured a successful partnership for many years to come.”
Speaking on the partnership, Cameron Clarke Director Steven Clarke said:
“Partnering with Select marks a very exciting point for us at Cameron Clarke. This is a major opportunity for us to combine our experience and industry know-how with Select - the largest and most recognized name in the industry.”
“We are two companies who share an ambitious vision for the future, and we felt joining together with Select made perfect sense for both parties.”
“We have a fantastic team of people already in place at our office in Preston to support new customers and work alongside the staff at Select to help deliver an incredible, market-leading car leasing offering.”
