The company would find out nearly right away, unless they just don't account for their vans for weeks at a time, which is highly doubtful. They would likely be hit with about $150 impound fee, at worst. Impound fees are not the worry, But this next part is.
ICON: The company/owner of the van can be sued for an accident this guy may get in. Your company could lose everything if this guy were to get in an accident that injured someone in another vehicle, and that person or their family decided to sue. The name on that Van title is fair game in a court of law.
I stand firmly against tattling on someone, but in this case ghwk has a pretty good idea.
Some states have laws that require a vehicle to be impounded for 30 days if the driver is found to be DWLS (particularly with a repeat offender)... even if the vehicle belongs to someone else. And then the towing companies charge a daily "storage" fee. Don't know if ICON's state has this type of laws, but if it does, that could suck for the company.
