Independent equipment lessor Summit Funding Group bolstered its Construction and Material Handling division with the addition of two sales managers: Scott Morrish and Jason Bovard.
In their new roles, industry veterans Morrish and Bovard will manage account sales and relationships with vendor and OEM partners across the United States.
The new additions come on the heels of the appointment of Michael J. Fitzsimmons as general manager of Summit’s Construction and Material Handling Division in July of last year.
“We are delighted to welcome Mr. Morrish and Mr. Bovard, two seasoned and dedicated equipment financing and leasing professionals, to our growing team,” says Fitzsimmons. “Their expert knowledge of the construction and material handling space, as well as respective experience and relationships within the industry, will further deepen the value of the services we offer and expand our Client-focused capabilities.”
Morrish joins Summit with 20 years of experience in the equipment leasing and financing industry, including structuring client requests ranging from $1 million to $25 million and extensive hands-on business development. He most recently served as a vice president and regional sales manager at Sumitomo Mitsui Finance & Leasing.
“Throughout my decades in the equipment financing and leasing industry, I’ve known Summit to have a highly respected reputation as one of the foremost experts in the equipment leasing space,” said Morrish. “I’m looking forward to drawing on my past experience to create synergistic results alongside our passionate team.”
Bovard has over 10 years of experience in the construction and material handling industry. He previously served as vice president and senior account executive PNC Equipment Finance, working with manufacturers, dealers, and distributors. In that role, he further partnered with senior-level OEM executives to build leasing programs to help increase sales.
“Taking this opportunity to join a firm with deep industry connections and a consistent dedication to optimizing and expanding its client offerings and services was an obvious choice,” notes Bovard. “I look forward to taking on this active role on this exceptional team, which feels like a natural progression in my career.”
