Our clients and equipment finance team are fortunate to have someone of David’s caliber managing our northeast equipment finance efforts and I look forward to working alongside him.”
Lempko joined First Niagara Leasing as sales director for the Northeast region in 2014, following seven years in the business banking division with Key Equipment Finance as sales director where he worked his way up to senior vice president. Prior to that, he held various positions of increasing responsibility with Automatic Data Processing, AT&T Capital and Executive Leasing.
