Rev. Dr. K. Bill Dost, Group CEO of the D&D Companies was awarded the Personality of the Year Award for Equipment Finance.
This award is designed to recognise the individual who has made the most noteworthy contribution to the equipment finance, fleet finance or retail auto finance industry in the last 15 months. It is open to anyone in the industry.
Said Dost, “I’m extremely humbled to be recognized by what is an amazing industry, this award is really due to the efforts of our team pushing us to be who we are and freeing me to go on to move us from level to level, I am extremely thankful to each and every one of them”.
Dost was recognized, for his unswerving belief in supporting the small and medium enterprise since the inception of the company, his continual work in supporting small and underfunded causes, and his continual support of the industry by way of sitting on various boards and committees.
Under his leadership D&D Leasing has seen continual growth; recently completing a new and significant finance facility and the opening of not just a Motor Finance Division but a planned expansion into the United States.
