Equipment Finance Advisor brings together a panel of four industry leaders to share their impressions as to how the industry is faring thus far. This year we mix things up a bit by offering perspectives from two bank-affiliated and two independents equipment finance companies. In the following roundtable discussion, Elaine Temple at BancorpSouth Equipment Finance, Craig Weinewuth at Engs Commercial Finance, Dave Drury at MB Equipment Finance and Phil Carlson at Nations Equipment Finance share the view that in general, 2015 has proven so far to be a strong year with the most notable weakness seen in the energy equipment sector.

Filling the talent gap continues to be of top concern and each industry leader shares their respective organization’s approach to dealing with the issue. We express our thanks to Elaine, Craig, Dave and Phil for taking time from their busy schedules to speak with us. 

In closing, we ask you, our readers, to take a moment and share your own views as to how the industry is faring in the Comments from our Members feature provided below.

Feel free to read these four perspectives in any order you prefer.
