Summit Funding Group expanded its Enterprise Finance division with the addition of Robert Gordon “Gordy” Iler, Jr. as national sales manager.
In his new role, Iler will lead and grow Summit’s dedicated Enterprise Group, according to Richard L. Ross, president and CEO of Summit Funding Group.
“Summit has served investment grade firms since our inception, providing expert equipment and software financing services, including customized leasing terms and Life Cycle Asset Management,” Ross said. “As we move to expand our offerings, our dedicated Enterprise division will be boosted by Mr. Iler’s deep expertise and long-standing relationships in the enterprise sales space.”
Iler joined Summit with more than 20 years of experience in the financial sales industry, including 18 years with IBM Global Financing, where he was responsible for financial sales of leasing, loans and project financing offerings to a range companies.
“Following several years of financial sales management experience, the opportunity to expand Summit’s Enterprise Group presented itself as an ideal fit for the next phase of my career,” Iler said. “Given Summit’s reputation as one of the top independent equipment lessors in the country, I look forward to growing with the firm and continuing to identify new ways to deliver the trusted solutions that our clients depend upon.”
As national sales manager, Iler will work closely with both Richard L. Ross and Matt Ross, vice president of Sales.
In addition to its Enterprise Group, Summit Funding Group is comprised of Middle Market Finance, Material Handling, Vendor Finance and Capital Markets divisions.
