National Funding said it has named Philip Lancashire working capital sales manager and Carlos Ituarte equipment leasing sales manager.

As National Funding’s working capital sales manager, Philip Lancashire is responsible for managing a team of sales representatives who help business owners take advantage of National Funding’s unique financing opportunities in the form of working capital loans up to $150,000.

As National Funding’s equipment leasing sales manager, Carlos Ituarte heads up a team of sales representatives who help customers in varying industries with their equipment needs. Equipment leasing makes sense for the majority of small businesses today because leasing provides benefits that purchasing does not.

Lancashire brings 12 years of sales and managerial experience to his position. He has worked in varied service industries, including financial, wireless and web hosting. Most recently, he was a sales manager for Greatcall. Lancashire also worked at and First Capital Financial.

Ituarte has a wealth of experience in sales management and business development. He has held positions in diverse fields, including telecommunications, Wi-Fi wireless, automotive sales, leasing and finance. In his role as sales manager of the Diverse Markets Group for AT&T, Ituarte focused on bilingual sales and was a multiple winner of the Presidents Club Award.

“Both new managers bring solid track records to National Funding,” said CEO David Gilbert. “They are firm believers in customer service, product development, and performance improvement metrics. They have shown that they can drive growth and profitability, while inspiring and motivating their teams to excel.”
