Customers Commercial Finance added Christopher Clark and Robert Rose as senior vice presidents – business development managers. Clark and Rose are both highly regarded sales professionals and will focus on building relationships with end-users, OEMs and vendors in CCF’s targeted verticals of plastics, packaging, crane, marine and construction.
“Despite the challenging national environment, the equipment finance market remains healthy and competitive so the opportunity to add the experience and talents of Chris Clark and Bob Rose is quite a fortunate one,” said Samuel H. Smith III, president of Customers Commercial Finance. “Chris and Bob embody the exact type of industry expertise and solution-oriented initiative that CCF espouses.”
Clark is a 31-year veteran of the equipment finance and leasing industry, starting as a collector and credit analyst, developing into a successful sales executive with GE Capital, First Niagara, Wells Fargo and Santander. Though based in upstate New York, Clark brings a national perspective. “My historic and prospective client base will be very enthused by the offerings, knowledge and efficiencies of the CCF team,” stated Clark.
Rose is embarking on his 37th year in the equipment finance industry, also having learned the business as a collector and credit analyst, transitioning to sales and originations over the last two decades. Before joining CCF, Rose was the president of Harbour Capital’s Transportation Group for 12 years. Prior to that he served in credit and sales roles at Signal Capital, TRAC Associates and Equilease. Rose will be based in CCF’s Portsmouth, NH headquarters. “In today’s environment, clients are begging for professionalism, integrity, genuine interest in their business and new ideas. It’s refreshing to see that these are fundamental principles of CCF,” said Rose.
