July 25, 2012

Jeff Smith, senior vice president of sales and international development, has announced his retirement, PHH Arval said. Smith has been with the company for 30 years.

Smith will continue with the company in a senior consultant role supporting PHH Arval Global Alliance.

“Jeff’s dedication, commitment and relationship management skills have helped us build the client portfolio we have today. We are lucky to have been the beneficiary of Jeff’s talents for so many years, and I thank him for his leadership and innumerable contributions,” said George Kilroy, president & CEO, PHH Arval.

Smith began his career at PHH Arval as regional sales manager in 1982 in the truck and equipment division. He was promoted to vice president of sales in 1990 and in 2000 was named senior vice president of sales and a member of PHH Arval’s Senior Leadership Team.

Following the company’s 2004 acquisition of FirstFleet Corp., a truck asset management company, Smith assumed the role of senior vice president, North American truck sales. Most recently, he was responsible for large fleet sales and for leading PHH Arval’s international business through the PHH Arval Global Alliance.

“PHH has been and continues to be an exciting place to work. I’m grateful for the opportunity I’ve had to represent the best capabilities in the industry to some of the best clients any company could ever have,” Smith said. “The entire workforce at PHH has been a team with whom any sales leader would be lucky to have worked.”
