ELFA Launches “Equipment Finance Matters” Podcast

March 10, 2020, 07:07 AM

The Equipment Leasing and Finance Association launched Equipment Finance Matters, a new podcast showcasing insightful interviews with leaders in the equipment finance industry. The podcast features a diverse group of executives sharing how they joined the industry, their top pieces of leadership advice and their personal stories of overcoming challenges and achieving successes.

The podcast was developed by the Emerging Talent Advisory Council (ETAC), a committee of up-and-coming employees from ELFA member companies working to encourage professionals to get involved in the association early in their careers and to attract the best and brightest to the industry. In 2017, ETAC launched a popular “Ask a Leader” series of written interviews with industry executives. The interviews were so well received that ETAC conceived of expanding the series into a podcast format. 

“We thought, why not take it to a podcast?” recalls Alexa Carnibella, ELFA Director of Professional Development and host of the new podcast. “This is a chance to get up close and personal with some fascinating leaders in our industry. We’re excited for listeners to get to know our first guest, ELFA Board Chair Martha Ahlers, and hear career wisdom from members with a range of backgrounds and experiences.”

The first season of the Equipment Finance Matters podcast will include six episodes. The first episode, “Soft on People, Hard on the Issues,” features Ahlers, President of United Leasing & Finance. Ahlers shares her top three pieces of advice for someone starting out in equipment finance, her biggest professional challenge and skills for success. Along the way, she and host Alexa Carnibella talk bumper stickers, diversity in the industry, fashion and finance, and Pepsi.
