GEF’s product offering will center on mission-critical machinery and equipment assets across diverse industries, including, manufacturing, distribution, transportation/logistics, healthcare, food and beverage, construction, telcom, and technology related sectors.
GEF will be led by equipment finance industry veteran Jeffry S. Pfeffer, serving as President. Jeff brings more than 35 years of innovative credit, lending, and equipment financing experience.
