Independent Banker Webinar to Feature The Alta Group

April 04, 2016, 07:10 AM

Increasing competition and regulatory pressures are encouraging more community banks to offer equipment leasing products to their customers. Independent Banker, a publication of the Independent Community Bankers of America, is sponsoring a webinar at 12 Noon (Eastern) Tuesday, April 12 featuring experts from The Alta Group who will discuss today’s leasing marketplace for community banks.

The one-hour webinar – “Improving Growth, Profits and Leverage through Equipment Leasing” – is free and open to all but advance registration is required. For more information, please click here.

During the webinar, Alta CEO John C. Deane and Director Andrew Mesches will cover: challenges and other considerations when implementing a leasing capability; key opportunities and strategic benefits for community banks that offer leasing products; and real-life case studies. A question-and-answer session will conclude the event.

Deane heads Alta, a leading consultancy focused exclusively on equipment leasing and asset finance, and lends his expertise to client engagements. Prior to co-founding the company, he served as a principal in the firm of Amembal, Deane & Associates, a global equipment leasing education and training consultancy. He has been CEO of both Great Western Leasing and BancOne Leasing and has served as the CFO and president of several major financial corporations.

Mesches helps banks and other Alta clients increase the growth and profitability of leasing and finance operations by improving their credit risk management strategies. He has decades of experience in the banking industry. Mesches began his career at the State Bank of Albany in N.Y, and later held positions at United States Leasing Corp. and Bank of the West, BancOne Leasing Corporation, and Key Equipment Finance before joining Alta.
