Hitachi Capital America divided its loan and lease programs into medium-duty and heavy-duty truck teams and added several heavy-duty experts. Among those new to the Transportation team are Dave Herring, Jeff Mills and Thomas Ball. Led by Kirk Mann, the Transportation team now offers a full range of financing solutions aimed at both medium- and heavy-duty truck markets.
Herring brings more than 25 years of market experience to the newly formed heavy-duty transportation finance team. As heavy-duty national sales director, Herring will lead the group that delivers HCA’s financing solutions to both dealerships and fleet operators across the country.
“The team we’re assembling is unmatched in the industry,” Herring said. “No one else can offer both medium- and heavy-duty truck and trailer financing solutions like we do. The breadth of experience we offer, combined with our robust programs and deep industry relationships, allow us to offer our customers the creative financing options they’re looking for.”
Mills, another industry veteran with 25 years of experience, is specializing in financing/leasing of medium to large for-hire and private fleets. His prior experience includes managing national and regional accounts for the top 500 transportation fleets in America.
Ball is now HCA’s vice president of Intermediary Finance and will lead the company’s loan syndication and portfolio purchase initiatives. He will also work with new brokers and large dealers to deliver multi-product financing solutions.
