LEAF Announces New Director of Operations
LEAF Commercial Capital announced that Sandy Bernadino-Graydus has joined the company as director of operations. Her primary role will be to ensure operational integrity and sales program consistency.
“Sandy’s professional experience blends perfectly with the LEAF brand,” said Miles Herman, president and COO of LEAF. “Our sales team is made up of experienced finance professionals who solve problems for our customers and help them to accelerate their revenue. Sandy has the solid professional skills and deep industry experience needed to keep operations and sales in sync and on track.”
Bernadino-Graydus comes to LEAF from Canon Financial, where she worked from 1994 until 2011, most recently as director of operations. She also held a number of sales and client services roles with Canon as well. Prior to joining Canon Financial, Bernadino-Graydus worked for Tokai Financial.
“I am really pleased and excited to join LEAF Commercial Capital,” said Bernadino-Graydus. “The company looks at equipment financing in a different light than most other financing companies. Turning leasing into a competitive, strategic advantage differentiates LEAF from the competition.”
According to Herman, LEAF has a number of new customer-facing initiatives underway that Bernadino-Graydus will help to implement. “As the equipment finance industry continues to evolve, seasoned and experienced professionals like Sandy will help us to reinforce our already strong market position,” he said. “Her diverse experience in customer service, leasing operations and sales will help drive our efforts, particularly as we continue to expand our Cost Per Usage and larger-scope Managed Services offerings. Sandy has the requisite skill sets to make sure we are consistently operating at the highest levels of performance and integrity.”
