Based on significant improvements The Larson Group’s leasing and rental division made to its operations in 2019, PacLease awarded it with a competitive Standards of Excellence Award.
The Larson Group (TLG), a network of 20 Peterbilt dealership locations throughout the Midwest and Southeast, recently addressed its TLG Leasing & Rental division receiving a 2019 Standards of Excellence Award from PacLease, a PACCAR company. Citing the group’s “significant improvements” and “full commitment to the franchise,” PacLease also made a point to highlight continued positive impact under the leadership of Mike Napoliello, general manager at TLG, who came to the organization in late 2018.
“I’m immensely proud of what we have accomplished in under two years,” said Napoliello.
He continued, “We still have a long way to go, but it is nice to be acknowledged for all of the hard work our team has put in. We are looking forward to continuing this new trend for many years to come.”
According to PacLease, a leasing and rental group must meet evolving, and quite high expectations to achieve this award, including commitment and capabilities and franchise profitability, as well as asset, sales and rental management. TLG Leasing & Rental attained 100-percent of the points available under the Commitment and Capabilities category, which consists of traits such as synergy among locations and utilization of mobile service for commercial trucks.
GM Credits Employees For The Honor
PacLease praised the group on its recent expansion of leasing and rental offerings to TLG Peterbilt’s locations in Charlotte, NC and Portage, IN, but even more significant, it provided accolades for specific TLG Leasing & Rental staff.
Napoliello explained, “This award is a direct result of the efforts of everyone within our department. It’s incredibly flattering PacLease positively called our employees out by name during the evaluation process. This is well-deserved by our team and I could not be prouder to work side-by-side with such inspiring people.”
