Ex-ARA executive director Russell Zimmerman joins LeaseInfo

He starts with the company this September.

Russell Zimmerman, the former executive director of the Australian Retailers Association (ARA) will be joining the team at LeaseInfo as a national and international distributor through his namesake consulting firm.

“I look forward to joining LeaseInfo to assist retailers using the suit of products and services that LeaseInfo provides. With the changes that retailers are facing due to COVID-19 it is
more important than ever to be aware of leasing costs. I have seen Accurait along with other products that Leaseinfo offered, it is not difficult to promote a product when you
had a belief in how the products could assist retailers in developing their business and saving money for retailers,” he said in a statement.

Under Zimmerman’s leadership for 11 years, ARA memberships grew, credited to his “extensive retail knowledge to tailored initiatives”, including the Major Retail Alliance. He was named among Australia’s top ten most influential people in 2020 by Australian Media.

“We’re extremely excited to have Russell Zimmerman joining our business to develop our brand in the retail market. Russell has a wealth of retail experience at all levels and is very highly regarded amongst retailers, landlords and government authorities. We look forward to working with Russell starting this September,” LeaseInfo managing director Simon Fonteyn said.
