Regional leasing firm, Vehicle and Equipment Leasing Limited (VAELL) has tapped Ms. Bertha Mvati from Zohari Leasing Limited, a subsidiary of Centum Investment Limited as the new Managing Director for Kenya. Ms. Mvati is expected to undertake commercial and operational roles. She brings over 10 years of leasing experience. Prior to her appointment, she was the Business Manager at Zohari Leasing Limited overseeing the company’s operations and strategy implementation.
She joins at a time when the lessor is set to launch new products in the market targeting the end consumer. VAELL is launching new products for the mass market to compliment the current products that targets mainly the corporate clientele. The new products are expected to boost the growth of the small business segment. This includes a massive US $ 5 Million investment in TingA, their flagship agriculture leasing brand. Ms. Mvati will be a focal point in the Kenyan market in commercializing leasing as well as offering a range of financial solutions for a broad range of clients.
Commenting on her appointment, Ms. Mvati said: “I am looking forward to building on the efforts made by everyone in the company over the past few years, cementing our hard-earned reputation for service quality and working to grow the business from what is now a very sound base.”
Before moving to Centum’s subsidiary, she was a member of VAELL’s senior management where she helped the lessor to emerge with a more consistent approach across all operating regions and a focus on quality of service. In 2014, she contributed to the lessor joining club 101 after being named first runner-up in the Top 100 survey, an initiative of KPMG and Nation Media Group that seeks to identify Kenya’s fastest growing medium-sized companies in order to showcase business excellence and highlight some of the country’s most successful entrepreneurship stories. VAELL has scooped 14 awards in the last 5 years. It first featured in Top 100 KPMG awards in 2012.
