Amy Spragg has been working in the equipment leasing industry for more than 30 years. She worked part-time throughout high school and college at Pacifica Capital, which was founded in 1984 by her mother and current managing director, Bette Kerhoulas. Spragg has been a full-time member of the Pacifica team since 1994 and has been involved in most aspects of operations, including credit, documentation, funding and accounting.


“This past year has been unprecedented on so many levels through the pandemic, with businesses struggling to stay afloat and some redeveloping their business models to meet the current conditions. I look forward to working with these companies to get their equipment acquisitions needs met in a fair, cost-effective and efficient manner.”

Currently, she focuses on all general company operations and cultivates and manages key client accounts and vendor relationships. Spragg became a CLFP in 1999 and has been actively involved in the Southern California region of the NEFA since 2006. She also served on the board of directors for the UAEL in 2008 and, from 2013 to 2018, she served on the board of the CLFP Foundation as treasurer and president. In 2015, she received the Cindy Spurdle Award of Excellence from the CLFP Foundation, which was created to acknowledge the CLFP who has contributed the most to the industry and best represented the CLFP ideals that year.

“Amy has grown up in this industry. She was compiling files and copying packages while still in grade school. She’s held every position at Pacifica Capital at one time or another. She is proficient at credit, documentation, sales, administration and financial reporting. She’s attended industry functions and conferences for years,” says Kerhoulas, who is Spragg’s mentor, business partner, teacher, best friend and mother. “Her value comes from her vast knowledge of our industry and how to navigate it with integrity and truthfulness. Pacifica Capital benefits from Amy’s expertise on a daily basis. Her discussions with our lenders are respectful, yet come from a place of extreme expertise. Her interaction with our customers is always positive and heartfelt; her customer service skills are second to none.”
