“I’m excited to welcome Michael to CIT. He’s a high-performing executive with over 20 years of experience in equipment finance across a wide variety of industry verticals,” Solk said. “Michael’s finance, leadership, operations and sales expertise will all help support CIT Equipment Finance’s future growth and the evolution of our business strategy. Further, he will continue to provide the high level of service that our vendor finance customers have come to expect from CIT.”

Jones said, “It’s a great privilege to join the Equipment Finance team at CIT, which is respected as a leader in the equipment finance industry and has an excellent reputation as a financial partner in the vendor community. I look forward to applying my experiences in senior equipment finance roles to my position at CIT.”
