Marc Keepman, Chairman and CEO of KLC Financial, was recently elected President and Chairman of the Board for the National Equipment Finance Association (NEFA). The news was announced at the 2018 Funding Symposium which took place in Charlotte, North Carolina earlier this month. More than 310 equipment finance professionals from around the globe were in attendance this year — a new Symposium record. The 2018 Symposium also broke a record for the number of first-time attendees and exhibitors.
This year’s event featured world-class education sessions that included a number of new and challenging subjects, and experts from around the United States were brought in to deliver these thought-provoking presentations. In addition to educational sessions, the Funding Symposium provided an excellent setting for networking, opportunities to meet service provider exhibitors, and an exciting presentation by economist Dr.Elliot Eisenberg, Ph.D.
The Funding Symposium also functions as the National Equipment Finance Association’s Annual Business Meeting where Directors and Officers are elected to serve for the next twelve months.
According to NEFA, Marc Keepman, CLFP, of KLC Financial, Inc., NEFA’s new President & Chairman of the Board, is joined on the Executive Committee by Dennis Dressler, of Dressler Peters, LLC as Vice President; Daryn Lecy, CLFP, of Oakmont Capital Services, LLC, as Treasurer; and Laura Carini, CLFP, of Financial Pacific Leasing, Inc. as Secretary. Mike Coon, of North Star Leasing Company, will remain on the Executive Committee as Immediate Past President.
Marc Keepman said, “I am delighted to be chosen to serve as the President and Chairman of NEFA during this coming 12-month period. The opportunities to grow and build our businesses have perhaps never been better. The combination of ample capital availability, good pricing, along with vendors offering top-level service and technology components necessary to achieve great levels of success, are at an all-time high.”
