Q: What motivates you to strive for success at Tiger Leasing?

A:Our customers and vendors. We are always looking for ways to make the leasing experience an enjoyable one. If our clients and vendors have a great experience with us, they will always come back for future needs. That’s our focus and it shows in our numbers: over half of our business comes from existing customers.

Q: What are some strategies you use or recommend when developing close relationships with new customers?

A: We listen. I think that’s the most important “strategy” we use. Every customer is a little different in their needs as well as the timing of those needs. We want to know the details of their business, what’s important to them, and what their goals are. Then we craft a leasing structure that best fits those requirements.

Q: How does experience give you a unique perspective of the leasing industry?

A: I’ve been fortunate to operate in this industry my entire working life. Although technology has changed the way we operate our business, the benefits we offer clients have not changed at all over the years. We help companies acquire equipment and grow –plain and simple – and we do so in a way that is financially beneficial to our clients.

Q: Did you ever consider other animals besides the tiger to represent the company?

A: Never!!
