2023 30 under 30 logo

The Leasing Foundation has announced who has made it into its 2023 30 under 30 index. Now in its third year, the 30 under 30 initiative aims to recognise individuals’ exceptional talent, showcase their achievements, and reward their passion, creativity, and brilliance.

Supported by Asset Finance Connect, and this year again sponsored by Acquis, the index – which is published annually - seeks to celebrate the most influential and highest achieving individuals in the asset finance industry. Representing 30 different lenders or service providers, they are all making an impact in the sector. In some cases, with a focussed commitment to business growth and professional excellence, they are reinventing the world of asset finance.

The rising stars, all who are aged 30 and under, received their accolade at the Asset Finance Connect 2023 Autumn Conference yesterday.

Nathan Mollett, chair of the Leasing Foundation and head of asset finance at United Trust Bank, commented: “A huge well done to everyone in this year’s Leasing Foundation 30 under 30 index. For the third year in a row, the index features a wealth of young talent bringing fresh approaches to asset finance. These individuals pave the way to success in our industry, break down barriers, demonstrate passion and skill, and ultimately push the industry forward. Landing a spot on this index is a significant achievement for any ambitious young person – and the talent showcased this year includes many future rising stars with a bright path ahead of them.”
