Prior to acquiring Premier Finance and Leasing, we undertook research into UK leasing and asset finance companies with a similar name. The results are that “Premier” is a popular choice of company name.
Firstly, we must not confuse our company with Premier Leasing and Finance Limited. Based out Gloucestershire, this company having been around since 1992, is run by the highly respected Greg Jones. Bob Phipps of Premier Finance and Leasing did mention that “post and emails have been sent to the wrong parties by mistake in the past.”
So far we are up to nine leasing and asset finance companies we have found under a “Premier” brand.
Premier Finance and Leasing – recently acquired by WestWon Limited, now based out of High Wycombe. Originally founded just under 20 years ago.

The word premier means first in rank, position or importance, so it’s clear to see why a business looking for finance would look to choose a Premier brand. In football you have the Premier League, in supermarkets you have many brands owned by Premier Foods. Hotels Premier Inn & Retail Premier stores. The word premier is everywhere and especially in the leasing market. We’re very much looking forward to continuing the good work and brand created by Bob as Premier Finance and Leasing.
