“We’re thrilled to have Michael join the North Star Leasing team as we execute on our aggressive growth plan by expanding our sales force and our syndication capabilities,” said Dan Feeney, CEO of North Star Leasing. “His significant experience in equipment finance and his involvement in the equipment finance industry, most recently as the President of NEFA, will allow us to take full advantage of his knowledge and bring our business to an exciting new level.”

“I am extremely excited for the opportunity to join North Star Leasing as the future growth potential is remarkable for this 40-year-old company. Dan and his team have built a solid platform and I look forward to contributing to its future success and national expansion,” said Michael Coon, North Star Leasing’s new CCO.

In this role, Coon’s responsibilities will be to extend the North Star Leasing brand nationally with a broader network of brokers and syndication partners as well as recruiting seasoned leasing professionals to complement the company’s existing business development team.
