More than 60 equipment finance professionals attended, representing 42 different organizations. “Thank you, Oakmont Capital Services, for hosting this amazing event in the city of brotherly love,” said Jesse Johnson, President of Consult Disrupt and founder of Equipment Finance Cares. “This was our largest fundraising effort to date, so thank you to all that attended and the continued support from our sponsors.”

Immediately following the panel discussion, the featured speaker, Nancy Robles, President of Eastern Funding, discussed her recent book project, “The Many Pieces of Me,” and the importance of mental health in the workplace.
