1st Equipment Finance, which will be based in Exeter, PA, will provide equipment financing solutions, including leasing alternatives, for business customers, vendors, manufacturers and municipalities.
“Our seasoned sales and management team has over 150 years combined experience in equipment financing with vendors, commercial customers and municipalities across the United States,” Cook said. “We look forward to leveraging this experience to expand the bank’s portfolio locally and across the country.”
