Robert D Parker's Experience:
CEO President at LeaseStationNovember 2005 - Present | Tempe, AZ
The instability of our economy cannot be ignored and has resounding effects on businesses, both big and small. Now more than ever, companies are watching their bottom line and making decisions that emphasize fiscal responsibility. The same financial institutions that played a heavy role in the events that precipitated the economic collapse have all but shut their doors to now disadvantaged business owners. LEASEStation was founded to combat the effects of the economic downturn, and offer business owners of all types the ability to finance equipment at reasonable prices. This is accomplished through our one-stop shop mentality and our use of technology to expedite the finance process. Our total financing solutions ensure the best rates possible for our customers regardless of their financial profile. We finance everything from start-up automotive shops to Fortune 500 companies. The LEASEStation system allows customers to apply for financing online and get approved instantly. Additionally, their resellers can review the application and stay aware of their customer’s progress throughout the process. We understand the value of time in today’s competitive market, and we strive to be the most efficient and expeditious program available. While our program emphasizes technology and innovation to streamline the leasing process, we do not undervalue the importance of personal relationships and sound advice. It is LEASEStation’s mission to educate our customers on what is the best decision for their business and provide the capital to make their aspirations possible.
