As EEF’s President and COO, Matte will have responsibility for all functions within EEF and will continue to report to Willie Brasser, EEF’s Chief Executive Officer. The role of COO is a newly created one for EEF. In his prior position of President and Chief Commercial Officer, Matte significantly expanded EEF’s market presence and delivered strong volume and asset growth since EEF’s inception in 2017.

Since joining EEF in 2019 as EVP, Davidson has led the development of EEF’s financing programs, which were recently increased to an aggregate amount of $755 million.

“I’m very pleased to announce these two promotions,” said CEO Brasser. “Over the past three years, Rick has done an incredible job of building a talented commercial team and consistently growing EEF’s originations. Tom has added tremendous value expanding and improving EEF’s financing vehicles, and he will have an even greater impact as EEF’s CFO. I look forward to working with Rick and Tom as we continue to build EEF into the pre-eminent independent large-ticket equipment finance platform.”
