CSI Leasing Commemorates 50th Anniversary with Donation to the American Cancer Society

CSI Leasing is celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2022. In honor of the milestone, CSI Leasing will make a $50,000 donation to the American Cancer Society as a presenting sponsor of the organization’s seventh annual Champions of Hope Gala. Steve Hamilton, chairman and CEO of CSI Leasing, will co-chair the gala. He is also a member of the St. Louis chapter of the American Cancer Society’s CEOs Against Cancer.

In 1972, Ken Steinback co-founded Computer Sales International, a computer reseller in Oklahoma with just four employees. In fewer than 10 years, the company’s business switched from reselling to leasing and its headquarters relocated to St. Louis, Steinback’s hometown. Over the last five decades, CSI has grown to more than 1,300 employees spanning four continents, with additional growth plans in process.

CSI’s international expansion began in Canada in 1995, followed by an expansion to the UK in 1999. Global expansion throughout Latin America, Europe and Asia followed from there. In 1998, CSI purchased IT asset disposition (ITAD) specialist EPC Inc. to process and resell or recycle all leased equipment returns, allowing the company to aid in the circular economy by means of proper IT lifecycle strategies. In 2005, the company changed its name to CSI Leasing to better reflect its core leasing business. Tokyo Century Corporation then acquired the company in 2016.
