Geneva Capital Names Cavers President, Promotes Putnam & DeBoer
JAN 10, 2020 - 6:55 am
Geneva Capital promoted Andrew Cavers to president and announced other promotions. Cavers joined Geneva Capital in 2005 as a regional sales manager primarily focused on providing equipment leasing and financing solutions to the Southeast region of the U.S. For the last 12 years he’s been the director of Sales overseeing a division of regional sales managers across the nation. Under his leadership, the division expanded into several new markets and experienced a 680%+ growth in sales.
Regarding Cavers’ promotion to president, Mark Watkins, Geneva Capital Founder & CEO, said, “This promotion was a natural progression for Andrew. Not only is he a well-respected member of the Geneva family and fierce advocate for our company culture, he has the proven track-record, intellect and people skills needed to lead our team to the next level of our goal-oriented journey.”
Stepping away from his sales role, Cavers will focus on Geneva Capital’s long-term growth initiatives and work to guide the company toward their vision of becoming the nation’s premier equipment finance solution in their respective industries.
The director of Sales vacancy left by Cavers will be immediately filled by Putnam, previous regional sales manager for Geneva Capital.
Putnam has been with Geneva Capital for nearly 15 years. After first serving the company as a credit analyst, he’s spent the last 12 years as a regional sales manager where he’s consistently ranked among the top sales managers.
As newly appointed director of Sales, Putnam will lead a division of regional sales managers focused on bringing equipment leasing and financing solutions to markets such as digital printing, apparel decoration and others across the U.S.
Along with Cavers and Putnam’s recent moves, Geneva Capital has promoted Jamie DeBoer to fill the role of regional sales manager. DeBoer has been an integral part of the company’s Inside Sales team for the last two years and will now oversee sales for the Midwest region.
Cavers said, “Troy’s earned a high level of respect from his peers here at Geneva and has become a household name in the industry. He brings an unmatched level of expertise to his new role and will no doubt drive our Sales Team to the next level. He leaves big shoes to fill, but we have the utmost confidence in Jamie’s ability to step into the role and push it to new heights.”
