Allegiant Partners d/b/a AP Equipment Financing moved its corporate headquarters from Walnut Creek, CA to Bend, OR.
“We opened an office in Bend several years ago with one person. Due to its great weather, good schools, lower cost of living, access to the outdoors and good airport access, we soon had people from California moving to Oregon. We now have over 30 people working from Bend including our specialty truck sales team, our credit operations, documentation, servicing and most of our accounting functions. Our Walnut Creek office will remain open, housing the majority of our marketing team, however, the heart of the company is now in Bend,” said Chris Enbom, AP Equipment Financing CEO.
“The company is growing very quickly, and we continue to add most of the staff in Bend and our major satellite office in Wenatchee, Washington. Both locations are near incredible rivers and mountains, have great weather, and have an overall lower cost of living compared to other major metropolitan areas,” added Raquel O’Leary, chief operations officer. “We are very well positioned to continue to grow from these great cities.”
AP Equipment Financing concluded 2018 with a total finance volume of $127 million, a 44.8% increase over 2017’s total finance volume of $87 million. The company currently employs 60 employees and manages nearly 6,000 lease contracts with small businesses throughout the United States.
