We are the voice of the leasing industry in Germany. The BDL has around 150 member companies, and these companies generate 85 percent of the value of the German leasing market. In the way they are structured, these companies provide a representative picture of Germany’s corporate landscape. Our General Assembly, which is the Association’s supreme body, elects the members of the BDL Board, who then serve on the Board for the duration of the electoral term. For its part, the BDL Board nominates the representatives who serve in the various Association committees.
The honorary members of our expert panels are men and women recruited from our member companies. They discuss technical questions, advise on concrete issues arising from companies’ particular activities, and explore possible solutions to any problems they identify.
