An industry veteran with over 20 years of experience, Marci L. Slagle started her career in leasing with Amembal Capital. In her eight-year tenure there, she was a driving force behind the expansion and implementation of the Intermediary and Broker Funding Department. In 2006, she moved to Tetra Financial Group to help them promote and expand their presence in the broker community. In 2008, she left Tetra to move to VFI Corporate Finance to start their third party/origination desk. In 2017, she took a position with SQN Capital Management to assist in bringing their funds to the U.S. market before she made the move to 36thStreet Capital, taking over as vice president of Originations.
VISION FOR THE FUTURE:
“Never before in my 20-plus year career has there been so much inclusion, opportunities, and mentorship available to help the next generation take a step up. The key lies in consciously making that effort to reach out, offer help when the opportunity arises and generally just get involved.”
Slagle is active in multiple industry associations, serving as immediate past president for the CLFP Foundation, as well as on the membership committee for the ELFA and on the ELFA Women’s Council. She has also served as a member of the ELFA Middle Market Steering Committee, as the conference chair for NAELB and on the board for NEFA (formerly UAEL) and WAEL. She is also a current member of ELFA, NEFA and AACFB. Slagle additionally donates significant time and effort working with or serving on the boards, panels and committees for these associations to promote the industry as a whole.
“Marci is an experienced and knowledgeable equipment leasing professional. Our entire industry has benefited from her long track record of giving back. Marci’s been very active over the years in CLFP where she was past president. She’s a former chair of the NAELB Conference and served on several committees. The ELFA has also benefitted from her involvement,” says Mark Horan, co-founder and chief growth officer of 36th Street Capital. “As a colleague, she is the ultimate team player and always displays a positive, can-do attitude. Her success comes from her technical knowledge, coupled with her deep and vast relationships throughout the industry. She is a vital member of our business development team and future growth here at 36th Street Capital.”
Business leaders have largely embraced the rapid introduction of home working and digital processes as an inevitable necessity. Though the global lockdown has rapidly accelerated trends in digitalisation, seeing many asset finance businesses moving their operations entirely online in a contracted timescale, the direction of these developments is not a new concept for the industry.
