TimePayment, a Boston-based fintech company in the equipment lease finance industry, became an associate member of the Foodservice Equipment Distributors Association, an association that provides education and advocacy on behalf of foodservice equipment dealers and distributors.
As a part of this membership, Sandra VanBuren, director of strategic business development at TimePayment, and Cory Damm, vice president and general manager of the company’s restaurant finance group, joined the FEDA’s industry technology committee.
VanBuren, Damm and the rest of the committee members are tasked with providing valuable insight, guidance and feedback to FEDA as they analyze data and navigate system challenges within the industry.
“We’re excited to welcome TimePayment as an associate member who will lend their knowledge and expertise in support of dealers and distributors,” Tracy Mulqueen, CEO of the FEDA, said.
Before her current role driving new partnerships at TimePayment, VanBuren worked directly with foodservice dealers as the director of strategy and business development at the Supply and Equipment Foodservice Alliance (SEFA).
Damm has a decade long-track record of identifying and delivering fintech solutions into the food service industry. At LeaseQ (later acquired by TimePayment), he led deployment into multiple verticals following a career building custom fiscal solutions for Direct Capital’s franchise business.
“TimePayment is excited to have the opportunity to bring the fintech perspective to the ever-evolving technology challenges our industry faces,” VanBuren said. “We are honored to be a part of a forward-thinking organization that is working to bring state-of-the-art technology into the foodservice industry.”
In 2019, TimePayment added to its restaurant finance group by acquiring specialist platforms LeaseQ and Kingswood Leasing.
