Richard Jones became managing director of motor finance and leasing at Lloyds Banking Group in 2018 as the two divisions moved to a single combined leadership structure.
The change expanded his role as managing director of Black Horse, where he had been for three years, to include responsibility for the country’s largest vehicle leasing provider, Lex Autolease, which currently funds more than 300,000 cars and vans.
In 2017, Jones was named as the new chairman of the Finance and Leasing Association (FLA), the trade body for the asset, consumer, and motor finance sectors in the UK, whose members include banks, subsidiaries of banks and building societies, the finance arms of leading retailers and manufacturing companies, and a range of independent firms. In 2020, members of the Finance & Leasing Association provided £113 billion of new finance to UK businesses and households.
