Summit Funding Group, a provider of equipment leasing and financing solutions based in Mason, OH, celebrated its 30th anniversary. The celebration included a gala held at Cincinnati Music Hall.
All Summit employees were in attendance to commemorate the milestone achievement, as well as several clients and guests from the firm’s parent company, First Financial Bank.
Founded in 1993 by Richard L. Ross, Summit has grown into a business that supports thousands of businesses and end-users alike with their equipment financing needs.
Summit was acquired by First Financial Bank in December 2021, and prior to that, was the fourth largest independent equipment lessor in the United States. Ross has remained in his leadership position as president and CEO, with Summit continuing to operate under the same name, allowing the company to take full advantage of its brand recognition within the equipment finance industry.
“I am extremely grateful for the trust our customers and business partners have placed in us over the past 30 years,” Ross said. “While we commemorate Summit’s achievement, we also celebrate the growth and accomplishments of our customers. For more than 30 years, people have been comfortable doing business with us, because we put the customer first. We work hard to provide personal service and remain a trusted partner.”
