Tomorrow, May 29th, DLL will celebrate its 50-year anniversary. From its humble origins as a financing company that was started with three employees in a small Dutch village, DLL has evolved to become an award-winning, global vendor finance company with over 5000 employees in more than 30 countries, and boasting a wide array of products and services.
At the time of its founding in 1969, DLL was viewed by its parent, Rabobank, as a pioneer in the field of financing. “An entrepreneurial, forward-looking culture has always been part of our DNA”, says Bill Stephenson, CEO and Chairman of the Executive Board. “In 1969, we started by paving the way with innovative solutions for local Dutch farmers. Today, we provide custom financing solutions for businesses around the world and are leading the development of pay-per-use solutions to address the growing trend of usage over ownership. We have accomplished this by carefully listening to our customers and anticipating their needs, which will continue to be a key to our success in the future.”
