Our team is the key to our success.
American Leasing Company was founded in 1990 by Tom Davis on the principle that commercial equipment financing should be more accessible to the average business owner. In 1993, the corporation was formed and began syndicating transactions outside of the region. By 1998, when Herman Fleishman came onboard, plans were set in motion to pool together resources and begin funding transactions in-house. Less than a year later, the company had enough capital to start American Leasefund, Inc.
American has grown immensely over the last twenty years–taking an investment of around $100,000 and turning it into a multi-million dollar funding machine. In the last decade, regional competition has dwindled, allowing American to emerge as one of the premier providers of commercial equipment financing solutions in the Northwest United States. Combined, the ownership group has over sixty years of experience and has invested millions in fundings to small and medium-sized businesses in almost every State in the Union. In April of 2016, Derek Anniston acquired 100% of the stock to become the Director and 100% Shareholder. The management group expects 2017 to be a record growth year as we expand our programs and offerings, continually providing our customers with better rates and the highest quality of service in the business.
