Dext Capital Promotes Hamel to SVP of Capital Markets
APR 11, 2022 - 6:36 am
Dext Capital promoted Donna Hamel to senior vice president of capital markets.
Hamel joined Dext Capital in 2019 with a focus on building relationships with qualified finance companies and banks. Over the last couple years, Hamel has helped develop and grow Dext Capital’s capital markets division.
Hamel refers to herself as a ‘seasoned professional’ in equipment leasing. As the first and only women to serve in a manager role during her time with Pitney Bowes Credit, she set a precedent when she had the company establish maternity leave for managers. From there she went on to work with major finance companies and smaller independents. She has had managerial responsibilities in nine countries in Latin America as well as Turkey and Spain, which provided extensive international travel. She is most proud of her tenacity to stay in what has been a male-dominated industry.
After migrating from credit to sales, she maintained a focus on vendor programs before moving into capital markets with the belief that the way you treat customers and colleagues sets you apart because without trust and confidence, you are just another commodity.
“Donna brings a wealth of industry experience, knowledge and professionalism to us as an organization but most importantly to her customers and clients. Her 25-plus years of experience in marketing, sales and sales leadership, coupled with her strong knowledge of the healthcare and IT markets, has positioned her as an industry leader and an integral part of our Dext Capital team,” Lou Altobelli, chief sales officer at Dext Capital, said.
