Russell Zimmerman partners with LeaseInfo as distributor

This month, Russell Zimmerman, former Executive Director of the Australian Retailers Association (ARA) will be joining Australia’s premier provider of retail-leasing services – LeaseInfo, as a national and international distributor through Russell Zimmerman Consulting. 

Last year, LeaseInfo launched Accurait® – a revolutionary new lease contract management system that is driven by artificial intelligence. The cloud-based solution was simply designed to save you real time and money administering and managing your lease portfolio.

“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.

Zimmerman, Former Executive Director of the Australian Retailers Association, has an extensive and impressive business track record; under his guidance, ARA memberships grew exponentially during his 11 years in leadership. Throughout the decade, Zimmerman was able attract major retailers by applying his extensive retail knowledge to tailored initiatives including the highly regarded Major Retail Alliance.

Russell Zimmerman was named among Australia’s top ten most influential people in 2020 by Australian Media.

LeaseInfo™ was founded in 2005 by Simon Fonteyn, whose vision was to achieve complete transparency in the Australian retail-leasing sector. An Australasian first, Accurait® was developed in partnership with CSIRO’s Data61, Australia’s largest data innovation network.

“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” said Simon Fonteyn, Managing Director LeaseInfo.
