Recently, the Equipment Leasing and Finance Association (ELFA) recognized First American Equipment Finance for 25 years of membership with the organization. ELFA is the premier trade association representing companies in the nearly $1 trillion equipment finance sector.
As a member of ELFA, First American joins forces with other leading companies in the equipment finance sector. ELFA members are the driving force behind the growth in the commercial equipment finance market and contribute to capital formation across the U.S. ELFA exists to provide member companies a platform to promote and advocate for the industry, including attracting and developing new and diverse talent; a forum for professional development and training; and a resource that develops information about, and for, the industry.
Alan Sikora, CEO of First American previously served on the ELFA Board of Directors and Mike Wiedemer, National Sales Director served on the ELFA Business Council Steering Committee.
ELFA President and CEO Ralph Petta congratulated First American on achieving 25 years of membership and thanked the company for its participation in and many contributions to the association and industry.
“Since its founding in 1961, ELFA has united the equipment finance industry under one umbrella to learn, do business and advocate for equipment finance and its important role in the U.S. economy,” said Petta. “Over the years, member companies have evolved and innovated to meet changing customer needs. This speaks to the strength and resilience of our industry as it equips American businesses to succeed and prosper. We congratulate all the companies celebrating milestone membership anniversaries in 2021, which also happens to be ELFA’s 60th anniversary.”
