MAR 10, 2021 - 6:24 am
Insight Investments promoted Chris Czaja to president of the company. Previously, Czaja served as executive vice president and CFO. In his new role, Czaja will be responsible for setting strategic direction for the company’s leasing organization as well as overseeing its day-to-day operations.
“We have achieved record growth over the past five years. Our exceptional IFS team headed by Scott Sullivan has been significantly expanded in key areas such as enterprise, education and SLED. This, coupled with our partnership with Harbor Capital in the material handling space, gives Insight a very strong foothold across the independent leasing landscape,” John Ford, CEO of Insight Investments, said. “With Chris at the helm of our newly structured financing business, supported by the talented team across Insight, we are well positioned to be the clear leader in independent equipment leasing.”
Insight Investments’ financing business includes Insight Financial Services (IFS) and a newly established partnership with Harbor Capital Leasing. Additionally, the knowledge and resources of its complementary Insight businesses, Red8 and 2NDGEAR, provide customers with access to complementary IT solutions and refurbished technology equipment.
“Insight has built a top tier organization comprised of the finest industry professionals backed by a scalable platform,” Czaja said. “We are extremely well positioned for future growth and continue to expand our technology, medical, modular and material handling equipment leasing programs for customers across the enterprise, education, healthcare, government and professional services sectors.”
Czaja is an industry veteran with more than 20 years of experience in the financial services industry. Prior to joining Insight Investments in 2008, he served as vice president and treasurer of Relational, a private, Chicago-based technology lessor. Prior to that, he spent nearly 12 years in commercial banking at European American Bank and Fleet Bank (formerly NatWest USA), where he specialized in providing financing for lessors.
Some of the other recent leasing appointments made by Insight Investments to support its expanded leasing organization include the promotions of Jim Lindley to executive vice president and director of corporate and enterprise leasing sales, and Colleen O’Donnell to senior vice president and director of SLED. Sullivan will continue to drive the indirect leasing business as national sales manager.
