News: Global Vans and XLCR join forces

January 2nd, 2024

Today we reveal the exciting news of the bringing together of two great businesses, Global Vans and XLCR to become a leading presence in the van and car leasing market.

Both businesses have proven success and are seen as being hugely complementary in terms of ethos, customers and skill sets. Together they will share initiatives, know-how and ultimately be able to offer our customers more services.

Both businesses will continue to have the same management and retain their strong individual brands and identities. Lee Duerden and Shaun O’Neill will join the executive board of the Global Vans which is led by Andrew Hurst, CEO of Global Vans.

Andrew Hurst commented that this was a great tie up between two fantastic business and we share the vision to become “The UK’s best and most innovative tech enabled SME specialist broker for LCVs and cars, their electrification, insurance and ancillary products”.

Lee Duerden went on to say “in March 2022 we watched in awe and admiration as Global Vans secured the private equity backing from H2 Equity, a leading PE firm with an exceptional track record. To be then asked to join them both on their journey, to build the biggest and best SME focussed car and van leasing ‘super broker’ was an opportunity not to be missed. Together, along with our respective teams we have the vision and ability to become a market leader in this highly specialist B2B space”.

The business goes on to thank its brilliant staff, loyal customers and supportive business partners.
