We wish the entire Donlen team continued success under Athene’s ownership.”

Athene Chairman and CEO Jim Belardi said, “We are confident that pairing Donlen’s expertise in fleet management with Athene’s strategic investment will result in a positive outcome for all parties involved. With our support, Donlen will be able to enhance their client experience and continue to grow their presence as a fleet management leader. This investment is squarely in line with our strategy of sourcing attractive, differentiated long-term investments that deliver strong and consistent returns for our growing portfolio. We look forward to partnering with Tom and the rest of Donlen’s management team to help position the company for long-term success.”

Donlen President Tom Callahan said, “I want to thank our dedicated employees for their commitment to providing best-in-class service to our customers. We are thrilled to gain the confidence and support of Athene, who believes deeply in our business and our people.
