Fortis, a commercial bank serving small- to medium-sized, privately held businesses in Colorado and Utah, launched an equipment financing product offering.
Chris Case will be responsible for the development and execution of this new product at Fortis, aligning with the bank’s growth goals by originating and structuring equipment loans that provide value to existing and new clients. Chase joined Fortis with a 23-year career in the equipment finance industry.
“Offering a high-quality equipment finance solution is something that our clients have been asking us for. Providing this additional product will supplement our full-service commercial banking offering to our clients,” Josh Peters, chief lending officer at Fortis, said. “This important step in our evolution will continue to expand our capabilities in servicing our commercial clients’ banking needs and being more than just a traditional community bank.”
“We continue to hire bankers who seek a flat organizational structure and an increased ability to service their clients and are fortunate that talented veteran bankers like Chris continue to choose Fortis. Our focus remains on expanding our teams in core markets, enhancing our commercial banking capabilities and continuing our commitment to serve our local communities,” Chris Luce, CEO and co-founder of Fortis, said. “This can only be accomplished with our continued investment in hiring the best people.”
