EverBank CF Adds Relationship Manger to Tech Unit

EverBank Commercial Finance said Rob Kelly has joined the firm’s technology division. Kelly will be a relationship manager for the Technology platform. He will be based in Eastern Pennsylvania and will report directly to Jeff Teucke, general manager of EverBank Commercial Finance’s Technology division.

“The addition of Rob to our growing Technology platform underscores EverBank Commercial Finance’s commitment to building the strongest teams possible to support our current customer relationships, as well as raising the bar in the area of new business development,” said Teucke. “We are incredibly fortunate to welcome Rob back into the leasing sector and expect he’ll play a major role in helping our clients attain their financing objectives.”

A seasoned veteran of the leasing sector, Kelly brings more than 25 years of leasing experience to the team, with an emphasis on technology and customer relationship management. Directly prior to his move to EverBank Commercial Finance, however, he spent two years as chief executive officer and president of the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Iowa. Under Kelly’s leadership Make-A-Wish Iowa effectively increased public support by 25% and returned the chapter to sound footing.

Prior to his work in the non-profit sector, Kelly served as business development manager for U.S. Bank’s technology business, where he increased volume by 22% year-over-year. Prior to his time at U.S. Bank, Kelly spent more than two decades building his career at Wells Fargo Financial. During his tenure at Wells Fargo Financial, Kelly increased his role from a regional and national account manager to vice president of technology/communications and finally, senior vice president of sales.
