How did you find LeaseQ?


What do you like most about working at LeaseQ?

I’ve been in this industry for 20 years.  With that experience, you see a lot of challenges over time.  The biggest ones are process-related.  Anyone that has been through any type of financing knows the paperwork and process can be clunky & cumbersome.  LeaseQ is eliminating those challenges with their cutting edge technology, innovative tools, & driven team!

Any favorite lender/borrower stories worth sharing?
Every deal I fund is just as important as the last one or the next one.  We’re helping businesses get started.  We’re helping businesses grow.  We’re providing financing for cutting-edge equipment so businesses can stay competitive in an ever-changing environment.  To single one out from the others wouldn’t be fair.  They all should be shared!

What’s your dream deal for LeaseQ?

We recently joined the School Transportation Association of Massachusetts (STAM) in an effort to be their members’ preferred financing partner.  This organization goes back to my roots in the school bus business growing up.  My family owned & operated a school bus company for 30 years.  My dream deal would be to finance a fleet of school buses for a member of this group that my father was once President of.

What apps/tech/tools do you use on a daily basis?

Salesforce & Outlook, keep things simple.

Any (other) work or life hacks you’d like to share?

Always stick to the basics.  Keep things simple, and stay organized at all times.  Without that, there’s chaos!

Favorite movie ever (independent of IMDB ratings):

The entire Star Wars Saga-The best story of good vs. evil ever told! 😉

Favorite activities when you’re outside the office?

Listening to Music, Exercising (3x/Week), and going on adventures with my wife.

Fill in the Blank: I’d love to see my coworker Anthony Schreve answer these questions.
