Company sets sights on new heights in 2021 with additional hires 

BURLINGTON, VT –  On the heels of the largest funding quarter in its 42-year history, ­North Star Leasing makes several additions to its expanding roster of professionals as it prepares for growth in 2021.

After posting a company record of $10 million to close out 2020 in December, North Star Leasing welcomes Frank Jansen of Lake Oswego, Ore., as the newest member of its sales team. A seasoned professional, Jansen comes to North Star Leasing with more than two decades of equipment financing experience.

Also in place to bolster the sales team’s capabilities, Lisa Dane joins the Documentation team.  Dane brings more than eight years of production and customer service experience to the position.

Additionally, North Star Leasing has transitioned Justin Ward from its sales team to its funding department. Ward started with North Star Leasing in 2018, where he created the process the company uses today to augment equipment financing offerings with opportunities at working capital funding.

“As North Start Leasing continues on our upward trajectory, we’re fortunate to have Frank, Lisa and Justin here to fill key roles in plotting and achieving our growth path,” said Dan Feeney, CEO of North Star Leasing. “The main reason we have months like December 2020 is we have dedicated professionals who want to see our customers enjoy success.
