LeasePoint Funding Group was recognized as the fastest-growing company in the 2022 Aggie 100, with a compound annual growth rate of 379.291%. LeasePoint’s 2022 Aggie100 honorees were Texas A&M alumni Jeff Markim, owner and managing director, and Daniel Totah, chief financial officer. The Aggie 100 is founded and sponsored by the McFerrin Center for Entrepreneurship at Texas A&M University.
“I was shocked, certainly happy, thrilled to be in the Aggie 100, and then to get the call that we were #1 this year…I would never have thought that. I really am honored, as a lifelong Aggie, to get this award,” Markim said.
Markim saw a need and sought to fill it while working in a previous role. He noticed that obtaining funding in many industries was inefficient, as well as recognizing an opportunity to introduce speed and simplicity. In an industry driven by numbers, Markim realized the power of being relational rather than transactional.
“Don’t be afraid. If you’re passionate about something and believe in something, go all in,” Markim said.
