“Sixt Autofahrten und Selbstfahrer” was founded by Martin Sixt in Munich in 1912. In 1927 the company was transferred to his nephew Hans Sixt, who founded the car rental firm "Auto Sixt" in 1951. In 1967 Auto Sixt was the first German company to launch a vehicle leasing programme for its customers.
In 1969 the current CEO Erich Sixt took over management of the company, renaming Auto Sixt to "Sixt Autovermietung GmbH" in 1982, and taking the company "Sixt Aktiengesellschaft" to the stock market in 1986. "Auto Leasing GmbH" (ASL) was founded in 1980, and "Sixt Leasing GmbH" in 1988.
Sixt Leasing, which has operated as a public company since 1996, has been admitted to the Frankfurt Stock Exchange since 2015 and is listed on SDAX.
In 2011, "Sixt Mobility Consulting GmbH" was founded as the Sixt Group's fleet management company, and has since been an independent brand. All previous customer fleet management activities were transferred over to the new company. Since operations began, Sixt Mobility Consulting has gained a variety of well-known customers.
