Rex Leasing’s Managing Director shortlisted for IoD Award


Ian Drake, Managing Director of well-known automotive retail company Rex Leasing, has been shortlisted in the annual Institute of Directors (IoD) North West & Isle of Man Director of the Year awards in the Young Director category.

Ian established Rex Leasing in September 2018.  Despite the business still being in its relative infancy, he has made his mark in what is an extremely competitive business sector in the Island.

Ian Drake, Managing Director, Rex Leasing said:

‘It is a great honour to have been shortlisted for this prestigious award and I am very grateful to the IoD for recognising me in this way. I feel that being shortlisted is testament to my personal commitment to provide better value and great customer service on new and used vehicles for Manx residents and businesses.

‘Despite enjoying an outstanding set of results in our first 18 months of business, I am planning further developments for the business so that we can continue to grow, innovate, and  establish long-lasting relationships with our growing customer base. I believe that Rex Leasing can be a positive disruptor within the Isle of Man’s automotive retail market.

‘We are continuing to respond quickly to the ever-changing requirements of Isle of Man residents and businesses. We now offer the option of ex-lease cars and vans for sale and are also starting to offer leasing solutions for local businesses in response to the growing number of enquiries being received for this kind of fleet product.’

Jennifer Houghton,  Chair Isle of Man, IoD said:

‘I would like to offer my congratulations to Ian for making the finalist shortlist of the prestigious IoD North West & Isle of Man Director of the Year Awards. I am delighted that the Island will be represented and I am looking forward to supporting Ian at the awards dinner in May. I wish him the very best of luck!’

The awards are due to take place in Manchester on May 14th.
