FORT Capital Resources Adds Industry Veteran Warren as VP

May 30, 2018, 07:24 AM

FORT Capital Resources announced the addition of Lee Warren as Vice President of Business Development.

In this role, Warren will drive net new business through engaging closely with end user clients as well as managing and developing vendor programs.

"We're in a growth phase and it's critical that we stay focused on maintaining a proper standard in servicing our clients, supporting our vendor partners, and participating in the capital markets," said Brian Fleming, Managing Member. "Not only is Lee a great fit with a shared ethos of the company, he is uniquely qualified to support the company through our future expansions."

Prior to joining FORT, Warren spent his 37-year career in banking, business finance and equipment leasing. Since 1994 he has been focused on structuring equipment financing solutions for vendor partners, end-users, and OEMs. Along his career path he has managed leasing programs with some of the largest IT resellers in America including CDW, PC Connection, PC Mall, Zones, Tiger Direct and Optiv Security, OEM-captive programs with Dell Financial Services, and Cisco Systems Capital, and Distributor leasing programs with Arrow ECS, Ingram Micro and Avnet Technology Solutions.

He also has extended financing in the general equipment leasing industry including niche-market-focuses in production and manufacturing equipment, telecom, LED flat panel technology, pro-audio/video, furniture and a variety of emerging technologies. During his leasing career he has been in executive-level management for one of the largest independently-owned, IT financing companies in the US where he managed their funding and leasing operations. Prior to his equipment leasing career he served as the EVP of Commercial Lending for a thriving Dallas community bank and was the CFO of a non-profit corporation for a number of years.

"I'll be celebrating my 25th year in the equipment leasing industry in August of this year. I joined FORT because I see how Brian and the company are successfully challenging the entrenched mindsets of our past in order to be positioned for continued success into the future,” Warren said. “The world is changing at an exponential pace and the financing industry must continue to provide innovative products to address the unique needs associated with equipment, technology and services that did not exist a decade ago.  I'm excited to be a part of accomplishing that with the FORT and continue to grow both personally and professionally. It's already proven be a great environment for that."
