After 15 years of service to Allegiant Partners as President, Board Member, Chief Credit and Operations Officer, Ben Carlile is retiring from the company to pursue other business opportunities.

Chris Enbom, CEO of Allegiant stated “Mr. Carlile has been an essential partner in building Allegiant Partners over the past 15 years. Mr. Carlile’s leadership – especially in business strategy, credit policy and portfolio management – has been instrumental in creating our efficient processes, growth-oriented culture and strong portfolio performance. Mr. Carlile is uniquely skilled in developing business structures and lending operations from the ground up. He was exceptionally effective in managing our portfolio of small business accounts through the recent downturn and in turning around a distressed portfolio that we purchased during the great recession.  Ben will continue to consult for us in the near term and he’ll add substantial value to the next management team he works with.  All of us at Allegiant thank Ben for his service and wish him well.”

Ben Carlile added “The company is performing well and hitting new milestones almost every month. I am proud of what we’ve accomplished and of Allegiant’s prominent reputation in our industry. My commitment to help Chris Enbom start and build a great finance company is secure and the company will end 2014 in record territory. I thank everyone at Allegiant for the opportunity to work alongside you and share our success.”

Allegiant has successfully evolved from a company that purchases structured equipment financing transactions from third party originators into a high-volume, “A” credit direct originator and wholesaler of small ticket transactions under several different brands.  Allegiant Partners is growing quickly and its portfolio of high quality accounts is performing well. The company recently signed a new $47 million credit facility with Harris Bank.  For more information regarding Allegiant Partners visit
