Diversified Lenders Names Myers to Lead New Transportation Team

Diversified Lenders announced the creation Diversified Transportation Finance to focus on serving the financial needs of trucking companies across the country through factoring, A/R finance lines and equipment finance. Diversified Transportation will work with a broad range of carriers with one to hundreds of trucks.

Eric Myers has been named president of the Diversified Transportation Finance team. Myers has spent more than twenty years selling and marketing financial services, primarily in the transportation sector. He spent several years with Transportation Alliance Bank and Transfac Capital in Utah; most recently he was vice president of marketing for TAB Bank.

Don Roberts, founder and owner of Diversified Lenders, said, “We are extremely excited to put this offering together and expand on the success that Diversified Lenders has enjoyed over the past several decades. We feel we have a great team in place and look forward to continued growth.”

Myers said, “Diversified Lenders’ strong team and resources are a perfect match for the offering we are bringing to the transportation industry. While the transportation finance market is competitive, our offering of equipment finance, working capital and industry knowledge will help us carve out a profitable piece for Diversified. I could not be more pleased with what we have put together so far.” Myers will continue to reside in Utah while building the transportation team in Utah and Texas.

Diversified Lenders started as an equipment finance company and has grown into a factoring and equipment leasing enterprise. With an extensive network of referral sources and partners, Diversified Lenders has assisted hundreds of companies around the country with financing ranging from $50,000 to $15 million.
