Star Hill Financial Adds Ende to Leadership Development Program

Star Hill Financial added Liam Ende to its leadership development program, which was launched to encourage recent college graduates to pursue a career in the equipment finance industry.

“Our hiring model since inception has been to hire seasoned industry leaders and then bring in new talent to support the growth of Star Hill,” Hollis Bufferd, CEO of Star Hill Financial, said. “Our [leadership development program] rotates the individuals through a comprehensive training program through various departments with the goal of matching them to a department and leader. [The program] is a testament to our dedication to fostering talent and nurturing the next generation of leaders in our sector. Liam’s enthusiasm and determination align with our core values, and we are excited to have him on board.”

Prior to joining Star Hill, Ende attended the University of Connecticut and graduated as an honors scholar from the university’s honors program with a bachelor’s degree in finance.

“Finding an internship during my junior year of college due to COVID-19 and getting the in-person experience was rare, as many companies were either remote or a hybrid model. I was fortunate to find Star Hill and be in the office environment daily,” Ende said. “I spent most of my internship supporting sales and credit.  My mentor, Christopher Wellbrock, suggested I apply to the [leadership development] program to fully understand the ins and outs of an independent finance company.  As graduation was approaching, I thought it would be beneficial to apply to the program.”
