First American Equipment Finance was named winner of the Best Companies to Work For in New York State competition at an awards ceremony on April 26, 2012. First American was chosen as the winner among 26 finalists in the small/medium-sized employer (15-249 employee) category.

 “We are honored by the loyalty and dedication of the exceptional professionals that are responsible for First American’s continued success,” said Bill Verhelle, CEO of First American Equipment Finance. “The commitment of our team to exceed the expectations of our customers is the cause of our continued success.”

Employers from across the state entered the two-part process to determine the best employers in New York. The process included a survey conducted by an independent firm that measured employee satisfaction and engagement, as well as workplace practices and policies.
First American was selected based on its employee satisfaction, plus its unique practices, such as its commitment to employee development, and its culture. First American was described as a company with a culture that is focused on loyalty, integrity, and entrepreneurial spirit.

First American Equipment Finance recently announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to become a part of Los Angeles-based City National Bank. First American provides leasing and financing services to customers in all 50 states and is ranked among the 100 largest leasing companies in the United States. First American has been recognized 10 times on the Rochester 100 list of the fastest growing privately held companies, 7 times on the Inc. Magazine’s 500/5000 listing of the fastest growing companies in the United States, and as the Best Place to Work in New York state. The Company has a longstanding reputation for professionalism and outstanding customer service among the large, sophisticated commercial borrowers it serves throughout the U.S.
