Encina Equipment Finance promoted Jaime Soter to senior vice president and team leader and Helen Steinberg to vice president.
As senior vice president and team leader, Soter will have responsibility for mentoring and coaching members of Encina’s operations team and implementing operations-related process improvements while executing on complex transactions. She will continue to report to Jamie Giaquinto, senior managing director and operations leader for Encina Equipment Finance.
Prior to joining Encina as a vice president in 2020, Soter was an assistant corporate secretary and leasing documentation attorney at People’s Capital and Leasing for five years. Before that, she held positions of increasing responsibility during her 10-year tenure with Webster Capital Finance.
“I’m delighted to announce Jaime’s promotion,” Giaquinto said. “Jaime has a proven track record of successfully managing numerous deal teams and consistently meeting aggressive customer-driven timelines. Her technical expertise, leadership and positive attitude make her a true asset to EEF and the operations team.”
As vice president, Steinberg will have responsibility for transaction underwriting and portfolio management for select Encina customers. She will report to Katie Branch, chief risk officer at Encina Equipment Finance.
Steinberg joined Encina in 2018 as an assistant vice president, holding finance and underwriting roles. Prior to Encina, Steinberg was with GE Capital for more than 10 years, working as an associate in energy financial services after holding positions in finance, operations and risk in GE Capital Americas.
“Helen’s promotion to vice president is well-deserved and reflects her strong underwriting skills and proactive approach to portfolio management,” Branch said. “Helen’s excellent analytical and organizational skills have been critical in closing complex transactions, and her overall dedication and inclusive approach make her a valued member of the risk team.”
