LCA Adds Portfolio Management, Vendor Financing Sales Staff

March 02, 2021, 07:25 AM

Lease Corporation of America in Troy, MI, announced the addition of new team members to the firm’s portfolio management and vendor financing sales staff.
Don Lippolis joins LCA as Senior Litigation and Bankruptcy Specialist. Lippolis was most recently with Canon Financial Services, Inc., where he was a Senior Workout Specialist. He has over 25 years of experience in the equipment finance industry in the areas of collections, workouts, litigation and bankruptcy. Lippolis will report to Jill Vogel, Executive Vice President of Operations.

The following new sales team members will report to Gary Hanson, VP of Sales:

  • Irene Duffy, Senior Account Executive joins LCA, where she will work out of her home office in the Philadelphia area. Duffy was most recently a Senior Business Development Manager for Marlin Capital Services and previously with Horizon Keystone finance. She has over 20 years of successful experience in the small-ticket vendor financing market.
  • Corey Puklus joins LCA as a Senior Account Executive. Puklus began his leasing career with Sanwa Bank Leasing and progressed to VP of Sales for the successor company, Bank of America Leasing.  After successful sales and sales management stints outside the industry, Puklus returns to apply his extensive background to growing new vendor financing business for LCA.
  • Barbara Kowalczyk comes to LCA as an Account Executive, working most recently with Amur Equipment Finance. During her more than 20 years in the industry, she served in a variety of functions from accounting, HR, operations and latterly sales. Kowalczyk will work from her home in Chicago and will focus her energies on developing new vendor finance business for LCA.

“These new staff additions are a tangible sign of LCA emerging from the 2020 market restrictions as a strong and viable finance company, ready to grow and serve its clients,” said Jeff Sugg, President of LCA and LCA Bank Corporation.
