Wolfert had a long and distinguished career in the equipment finance industry. He was an active volunteer for both ELFA and the Equipment Leasing & Finance Foundation. He served on the Foundation’s Board of Trustees in 1998 and served as ELFA Chairman in 2001.
After graduating from Louisiana State University, he worked for Proctor and Gamble and Connecticut General before joining US Leasing, which was the beginning of his 35-year career in commercial finance. He held executive-level roles at US Leasing, KeyCorp Leasing, Heller Financial, GE and CIT Group. In 2007, Rick’s passion, expertise and drive led him to partner with a private equity firm to start his own Commercial Finance company. He named the firm “Tygris” in honor of his and his wife Holly’s LSU experience. He most recently served on the board of Stadion Money Management.
A celebration of his life will be held on April 13 at 11:00am at Lake Oconee Church, 1101 Village Park Drive, Greensboro, GA 30642.
