Alta Speakers to Address Industry Topics at ELFA Philly Conferences

Three companies will present their real-life case studies about the benefits and challenges of data analytics for improving sales originations, servicing and end-of-term at the Equipment Leasing and Finance Association Operations & Technology Conference on September 17-19 in Philadelphia.

Equipment finance companies collect and generate a wealth of data, but most are unsure how to leverage it to increase competitiveness in strategic ways.

“Our goal is to give the audience something relatable, and also something that takes them further then they thought they could go with data analytics,” said John Hurt, a member of the Operations & Technology Committee, conference panelist and director with The Alta Group digital business advisory practice.

Other panelists for the data session roundtable will include Jim Humphrey and Kyle Gershman of Odessa Technologies, Kevin Truitt of LTi Technology Solutions, Chad Carlson of Tamarack Consulting, Tim Watters of Terra Point, and Frank Swann of ENGS Commercial Finance.

Hurt will also present during the pre-conference workshop on Blockchain: Beyond the Hype, with Deborah J. Reuben of Reuben Creative, Bart Cant of IBM and John Rizzi, head of the digital business advisory practice for Alta; and at the Risk Management & The Compliance (R)evolution session with Tamara Darnow and Jennifer Martin of Key Equipment Finance, Lisa Nowak of International Decision Systems and Joshua Bridge of Capgemini America.

Meanwhile, the ELFA Lease & Finance Accountants Conference, also in Philadelphia, will tackle looming accounting rule changes and other critical topics.

Shawn Halladay, a member of the ELFA Financial Accounting Committee and managing director of Alta’s professional development practice, will present at the pre-conference CFO Roundtable with Ann Gill of Encore Capital Group; the Lease and Loan Sales session with Dorina Maerean of IBM Global Financing and Charlie Shannon of Moss Adams; and the Hot Topics Roundtable with moderator Joseph Guage of First American Equipment Finance, Mamta Shori of Wells Fargo Equipment Finance and Jeffrey Ellis of FTI Consulting.
