The Business Council Steering Committees are the association’s primary constituent bodies and are an integral part of ELFA’s operations, providing input on the direction of the association and serving as a bridge between the membership, the board of directors and staff. Each committee analyzes the needs of companies in the segment it represents and recommends to the board of directors how to meet those needs. The committee members are elected by the Business Council membership for a term of two years on a staggered basis.
Michael Sweeney of EverBank Commercial Finance was named committee chair of the Captive and Vendor Finance Business Council Steering Committee, which represents financial services organizations that provide sales-assisted financing and vendor and manufacturer support activities, either on a third-party or captive basis.
Michael Romanoskiw of Farm Credit Leasing Services was named committee chair of the Financial Institutions Business Council Steering Committee, which represents bank-related and other financial institutions (commercial banks, investment banks and multi-line finance companies) engaged in the middle-market and large-ticket sectors.
Connie Eimers of Vision Financial was named committee chair of the Independent Middle Market Business Council Steering Committee, which represents non-bank-related organizations primarily involved in transactions between $250,000 and $5 million, either individually or through lines.
Jeff Dicosola of Great American Insurance was named committee chair of the Service Providers Business Council Steering Committee, which represents organizations and firms providing a variety of related services to the members of the other four business councils.
Lastly, David Normandin of Hanmi Bank was named committee chair of the Small Ticket Business Council Steering Committee, which represents financial services organizations primarily involved in transactions under $250,000, either individually or through lines.
