CS Leasing appoints Kevin Singh to head European expansion

CS Leasing has appointed Kevin Singh as Vice President – Europe to oversee its expansion into European and African markets.

CARU Specialized Leasing (CS Leasing) was formed by Dutch company CARU Containers, one of the world’s largest container traders, and TCG (Transportation Capital Group), which manages extensive container investment portfolios, in September 2015 and offers a wide range of container types and lease products, including ISO Tanks and dry freight specials.

Kevin joins the company from Fort Vale Engineering, a precision manufacturer of valves and fittings for the bulk liquid transportation industry. During his 10 years at Fort Vale, Kevin rose to become Sales and Marketing Director and a Board Member. He has extensive contacts in the tank container industry, in-depth experience of the current manufacturing environment and a deep understanding of the issues that operators and logistics providers are facing.

“Kevin’s extensive network and business knowledge will make a valuable contribution to our business,” said Tim May, part of the management team at CS Leasing. “His strong commercial and operational expertise, combined with his experience in managing overseas expansion, was extremely attractive for us.”

Kevin’s primary role at CS Leasing will be to focus on creating a global infrastructure and to oversee growth in Europe and Africa. The decision to expand builds on the positive reception CS Leasing has received in the market since it was launched last year.
