A PE sponsored equipment finance company reached out to identify a Chief Sales and Marketing Office. Within two weeks, our team was able to vet a short list of top qualified candidates with experience in the Structured Finance and Leasing market. We collaborated directly with the CEO to present the most qualified candidates for this role and satisfied the role in one month’s time.

Their goal was to find a leader who could grow and manage a team/portfolio of $5BLN in 5 years. The search was completed in 6 weeks and a team of 7 new business and credit professional were later added to the organization.
