LEAF Commercial Capital, Inc., a U.S. equipment leasing and finance company and subsidiary of People’s United Bank, N.A., announced Michelle Speranza, Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer, has been recognized as one of The Cannata Report’s “Women Influencers for 2020.”

The Cannata Report, an intelligence resource for reseller principals and senior executives within the business technology, managed services, and imaging industry, recently featured Speranza as part of its recognition of the importance of diversity. The article states, “As the imaging industry looks to its future, encouraging diversity and inclusion in the workplace can solidify survival, as it’s not only a feel-good initiative, but also a necessary business priority.”

“Michelle Speranza stands out in the office technology industry for her accomplishments and her broad expertise,” said CJ Cannata, President and CEO of The Cannata Report. “Her dedication and commitment to excellence include her understanding of – and unwavering passion for – diversity as a strategic business imperative, as exemplified only in part by her creation of the Philadelphia chapter of Women in Leadership. Michelle is an inspiration to female executives throughout the industry. It is an honor for The Cannata Report to feature Michelle as one of 2020’s Women Influencers."

When asked about the recognition, Speranza said, “To be acknowledged as an ‘Influencer’ by the Cannata Report and the imaging industry is a distinct honor. Diversity and inclusion are essential to achieve innovation and desirable business outcomes. Without conscious, consistent effort to bring in new viewpoints, companies can get so focused on the way things are that they don’t see the way things could be.”

For more than 15 years, Speranza has led marketing for LEAF and is often recognized as a consistent innovator and ground-breaking executive, while simultaneously focusing on the success of the industries LEAF supports, and the advancement of diversity in the workplace.
