VIDEO INTERVIEW: David Schaefer, CEO of Orion First discusses how FinTechs have challenged traditional financial services platforms by providing innovative products and services – and why embracing their standards of customer service can be a positive for traditional financial services companies.

In this installment of Equipment Finance Advisor’s Thought Leadership Video Series, Schaefer says that looking at the positives these FinTechs provide can make your company stronger. According to Schaefer, understanding the value of these models will provide traditional finance companies opportunities to look toward the future via a “heads up” approach to business.

Equipment Finance Advisor’s Thought Leadership Videos feature interviews with subject matter experts and leaders from bank-owned equipment finance companies, banks, independent commercial finance companies, consultants, service and product providers and more – offering their candid thoughts in interviews broadcast via Equipment Finance Advisor’s YouTube Channel.

Dave is always thinking steps ahead, what's next and always challenging the status Quo! That is what makes him and his firms progressive and successful. It is an honor to work with Dave on the ELFA and in his businesses of Orion and Mintaka. It is also a great honor to call him a friend as well.

Dave has it right. If you subscribe to "best practices", take at look a the FinTech market's deliverables. We got into the market early and learned there are components that can take your company to the next level either through internal implementation or a partnership.
