The Jolly Group has expanded its range of car and van offerings with the launch of a leasing division to complement its rental service.

Known as Jolly Good Leasing, the new brand offers business and retail users vehicles on one to five year-contracts, with monthly payments starting from £88.

Funding options available include contract hire, PCP, hire purchase, finance lease and outright purchase.

The new leasing arm will join the company’s rental service – known as Jolly Good Vehicle Rentals – which operates out of eight locations throughout the UK.

Mike Baeten will lead the new division as leasing manager, and will be responsible for managing customer accounts and acquiring new business.

Baeten joins from Corporate Food Company, where he worked in a sales role. Before that, he worked as a customer experience leader at Sky and as a customer service manager at O2.

“Joining the Jolly Group will give me a new challenge and the chance to use my sales and customer service experience,” Baeten said. “I hope to take Jolly Good Vehicle Leasing to a new level by gaining new business and maintaining our database by ways of effective relationship building.”

“My aim is to create brand awareness of the business and secure clients a great leasing deal,” he added.
