Formerly vice president, head of Healthcare at TCF Equipment Finance, Farlin will lead LEAF’s continued expansion into the healthcare industry.

In addition to spearheading LEAF’s drive to increase that momentum in target segments such as healthcare, Farlin will spearhead the company’s focus on building infrastructure and also support premier national accounts in other key segments.
