“Do more with less – be passionate and determined.”—Chris Fletcher
Chris "Fletch" Fletcher aka theLeaseGuy -- Senior Account Executive for Crest Capital based in Atlanta, GA -- has been a finance buff since elementary school: “accounting, banking, business investment, tax implications – I love every aspect of it, and structuring winning transactions for equipment sellers and buyers is a true passion.”
Chris knew from an early age that a career in finance was in his future. Educated at Florida State University with a degree in business, Chris also completed graduate work in taxation and finance. His experience and diligence as an undergraduate landed him positions as a sales representative for various marketing organizations in the healthcare and technology industries. One of the most valuable skills Chris learned in sales was how to relate to others in a way that is effective and engaging. He carried these skills over to his senior account executive position at Crest Capital, where he has worked since 2007.
At Crest Capital, Chris creates and manages vendor finance programs for equipment manufacturers and dealers in a variety of industries. His work serves as the catalyst for increasing his dealer partners’ sales, as these programs provide the customer financing that is crucial to closing deals in these tough economic conditions.
The success in the finance industry that Chris enjoys can especially be attributed to his willingness to share his knowledge with others. He is a frequent speaker, author, and instructor - conducting seminars on college level finance and accounting concepts to non-financial groups, authoring dozens of technical articles about equipment, vehicle, and software finance, and instructing in-depth training classes on the role of price presentation in the sales process. In addition, Chris comments about a variety of topics pertinent to U.S. small businesses in his blog that can be found on theLeaseGuy.
In his spare time, Chris takes pride in giving back by donating his expertise and resources to civic and industry causes including serving on the board of a non-profit school, as vice president of a national trade association, as a member of a church finance committee, and as finance chairman of a national risk management organization, and donating to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. He especially enjoys spending time with his beautiful wife and playing guitar on the weekends. For help with your equipment, vehicle, and software finance needs whether they be large or small, Chris can be reached by calling (770) 828-0095.
