Mobility and fleet leasing firm Alphabet has announced that it has appointed Chantal Gorman as its Chief Risk Officer.

Gorman will assume the role of Chief Risk Officer from Stefan Oswald who has been carrying out the regulatory responsibility for the function, supported by Neal Coleman, Head of Risk. Both have been continuing to strengthen the department in their time in the roles; most recently leading on Alphabet’s COVID-19 response.”

Gorman has been with the company since 2011, when she joined the business during the integration of Alphabet and ING.

Gorman has 25 years’ experience in the vehicle leasing industry and brings a wealth of financial management experience to the role. Starting her career with ING, she has worked in almost all areas of finance including controlling, financial planning, information management, underwriting and collections. After heading up the information management team, Gorman moved into her current role as head of controlling – a position she has held for six years, managing several successful projects.

Gorman said “Over the past nine years I‘ve worked across a range of business areas within Alphabet which has given me invaluable experience and insight into our financial management, as well as the challenges the industry will face over the next few years.”

“I have thoroughly enjoyed building and developing a highly talented team within Controlling and am now looking forward to leading the Risk function into the next phase of our success. The team is already considered ‘best in class’ and I’m excited to be able to lead the function at such an important moment for our business and industry, as we enter a new chapter together in these unprecedented times.”
