Arboretum Commercial Finance appointed Bob Fisher, CLFP, senior vice president of business development to spearhead the sales and operations of Arboretum’s new Flex-Ticket program.
Fisher has a 35-year background of sales, credit and management experience in the equipment financing industry. Fisher has held management positions with Bank of America, Main Street Bank and, most recently, Ascentium Capital. Fisher has been active in numerous professional organizations, having previously served as president of the United Association of Equipment Leasing and the president of the Certified Lease & Finance Professional Foundation.
“It is exciting to be part of Arboretum Commercial Finance and its new Flex-Ticket program,” Fisher said. “I am looking forward to working with the Arboretum team and rolling out this new program.”
Arboretum’s Flex-Ticket program offers equipment financing solutions for lower middle market B-credits. Focusing on manufacturing, healthcare, logistics and infrastructure industries, the new program is designed to analyze and factor in mitigating circumstances for the lessee like tenure, cost savings and unfavorable temporary situations.
“I have known Bob for over 30 years and am honored to have someone of his caliber and expertise join the team,” Chip Leas, CEO of Arboretum Commercial Finance, said. “Bob will be a tremendous asset for Arboretum as we continue to grow and expand.”
