Selling Power magazine identified First American Equipment Finance No. 30 among the top sales forces in the United States. The ranking includes companies of all sizes, with sales teams ranging from fewer than 100 salespeople to salesforce numbers in the thousands.

“First American’s vision is to become the best company to work for, and the best company to work with,” said Mike Wiedemer, National Sales Director for First American Equipment Finance. “Our sales professionals work hard every day to innovate around the client experience so that it can be simpler, faster and more-customized. Doing so has enabled us to exceed client expectations and grow market share.”

First American’s philosophy includes hiring and retaining top talent, integrity and transparency in all business dealings, and uncapped sales earnings. As a result, the sales trajectory has shown steep growth during the last several years. The company grew from $412 million in sales in 2015 to $1.1 billion in 2018. Fairport, NY-based First American is continuing to grow and is actively hiring a limited number of commercial lending professionals.

To determine the rankings, Selling Power focused on data from the following areas: customer growth and retention; hiring, compensation, sales training and advancement; and company recognition and reputation.
