I grew up along the Wasatch Front in the beautiful state of Utah, but for the better part of my life have been in Southern California and the Pacific Northwest. I am a Washington State Cougar, but don’t hold that against me. I have been working in the commercial & consumer finance industries for more than 16 years specializing in customer service, collections, asset management, bankruptcy and litigation. I have managed teams large and small and have lots of good stories to tell. I believe in building people and managing process, and that with good people, tools, technology, and the right approach you can create a competitive product and provide really excellent service. I enjoy travelling, but my 4 (younger) kids make that a bit more challenging so at this stage in life sometimes a trip to Target is as good as it gets. I love to cook and create culinary wonders (as in “I wonder what that’s supposed to be?”). If I’m not in my office or the kitchen you’ll probably find me in my workshop ankle-deep in saw dust working on my latest project.
I grew up wanting to do nothing more than supply apples to the world. As a fifth generation Washington apple farmer, I was passionate about the industry and the product. I spent my first spring break, at the tender age of 6, gathering tree prunings from the orchard with my grandfather.
When it came to equipment, I was always the guy who happened to be running the piece when it broke. That might be why I now help suppliers and businesses finance equipment rather than operate it. I am still passionate about the Washington apple industry, but I have become just as passionate about the equipment finance industry.
Instead of being the fifth generation to operate our family's business, I help multiple generations successfully operate their own.
Whether you are an equipment supplier that needs a financial partner to provide financing to your customers or a business that needs a solution, I can help your business grow. Consider letting me show you how equipment finance can effectively be used as a tool to run your business for generations to come.
I am originally from the Midwest. My wife Deb and I moved to the beautiful Pacific Northwest after we were married. Here in WA state we raised our family. I entered the finance industry in 1991 and have never left. I used companies like AP Equipment Finance in my prior careers, so I have experienced both sides of the desk. This experience is of great value when dealing with our clients. My original company was ClearView Financial. We merged with Allegiant Partners in 2013 and have evolved to AP Equipment Finance. Our merger allowed us to become a direct lender which offers a much broader range of services and programs.
I am Director of National Accounts. I work with both the client when they purchase equipment and with the vendor who is selling the equipment. We are proud of the amount of repeat business we do with our clients. We also set up finance programs for manufactures, vendors and dealers to finance the equipment they sell.
When not behind my desk or on the road, my passion is the outdoors. I am an addicted snowmobiler, dirt bike rider, hunter, fisherman, golfer, hiker, kayaker etc. Deb and I own a cabin in the Cascade Mountains and spend much of our spare time there with our kids and grandkids, friends and of course our yellow labs.
After graduating college in 2010 from San Diego State University, I spent a few years exploring various cities on both the East and West coast before settling back in the Bay Area in 2013 when I joined with Allegiant Partners. I am a native Californian and worked out of the Walnut Creek office for almost 3 years before recently transferring to our Oregon office! My current role is as a Senior Funding Coordinator - my responsibilities are wide and varying, but primarily include all things related to the documentation and funding of transactions. Before moving to Oregon, I was a California Notary and am currently studying to obtain my CLFP Designation. After hours and weekends are typically spent with my fiancé and our recently adopted Australian Shepherd mix, Dakota! Our extracurricular activities include cooking together in our kitchen, wine tasting in our living room, and exploring our new home in the PNW.
Before working at Allegiant Partners, I studied economics at the University of California, Davis, while also working, driving vintage London double deck buses and rowing on the crew team. I graduated in 2014 and immediately started working at Allegiant Partners. In 2016, I earned my CLFP Associate designation.
As a Marketing Associate, I spend my time collaborating with upper management to plan and create new campaigns that increase Allegiant’s visibility in target niche industries. This entails creating and developing digital and physical business to business communication materials and programs, managing the live website chat tool, videography, among other undertakings.
In my free time I enjoy Giants baseball, hanging out with my girlfriend and our 2 dogs, riding my vintage Honda motorcycle, and doing anything related to motorsport.
I was lucky enough to join this innovative and growing company, Allegiant Partners, in May 2011 as a Client Coordinator. In 2014, I was honored to join the Certified Lease & Finance Professionals (CLFPs) who are committed to upholding the best practices in our industry.
Currently, I hold the role of Credit Manager and oversee all internal and syndicated transactions. I’m also involved in the constantly evolving process of improving Credit-related operations and the creation of training material for our team.
I was born in California and raised in Oregon. To-date my biggest adventure has been traveling across the Pacific Ocean to meet my extended family in the far away beaches of the Philippines. I now reside in the beautiful state of Washington with my husband. On our off hours we enjoy eating great food and taking road trips whenever we can!
I grew up on a farm in a small Central Washington town, Mansfield. I moved to Wenatchee where I attended the local college and earned an Associate’s Degree in Business. In 1990 I went to work for a small leasing company in the credit department. From there I worked in various departments within the Lease/Financing Industry from credit, sales support, doc/funding, to management positions. Having such a broad experience within the industry, I decided to test for and achieved my Certified Lease and Finance Professional designation in 1999.
In 2013, ClearView Financial, the Lease/Financing company I was working for, was purchased by Allegiant Partners. I am currently a Sr. Funding Coordinator where my main focus is on documentation while supporting the sales staff.
My personal time is spent with my husband fishing and camping where my passion for photography allows for some great photos. I also enjoy reading, canning, and gardening.
Born and raised in San Francisco’s Bay Area, I have been blessed to always be able to call this place my home. I left briefly to attend the beautiful University of California at Santa Barbara where I earned a Bachelor of Arts in business economics and a minor in Mandarin Chinese.
After college, I returned to the East Bay and started working for different companies until I joined Allegiant Partners. As a staff accountant for Allegiant Partners’ accounting department, my responsibilities include working with our funding department to pay our customer’s vendors and getting all contracts onto our books.
When I am away from my desk, I love to spend time with my dog, experiment and try new recipes in the kitchen, and visit my happy place – Disneyland!
I was born and raised in the North West. I spent most of my childhood in Corvallis, Oregon and I was very active with ski racing, hiking, water skiing, golfing, playing soccer, baseball, running…just being a “normal” hyperactive kid. I was involved in lots of clubs as well – including model UN (I actually was elected Secretary General of our state!) and other political clubs. I spent three months as an exchange student in Tunisia, North Africa my junior year in high school.
I decided I wanted a bigger city university experience, so I attended UC Berkeley and received a degree in Political Economy (political science and economics). I took six months off and worked for a Senator in D.C, and spent a semester in France but ultimately decided to learn Japanese and more financial skills so I ended up in Tokyo working for a leasing company in the late 1980s.
Japan was booming, and I sold Japanese aircraft leases to investors in Japan and helped airlines and railroads finance equipment all over the world.
I met my wife Margot in Japan (she is from Alberta, Canada) and we eventually moved back to San Francisco where I continued to do structured big ticket equipment finance for Bank of America and then the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce (CIBC).
When I had my first child I decided I needed a new job with less international travel, so I quit….and started Allegiant with a phone and an office! I now have 3 kids, including one in college at Gonzaga, and we love mountain biking, hiking, skiing and spending summers in the Pacific Northwest where we have a family home. I love the company and culture we have created at AP Equipment Finance and I am proud we have grown from a one-person operation to a substantial company!
Originally from Southern California, I graduated from the University of California, Riverside with a Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration.

I am a Bay Area native who recently relocated to beautiful Bend, Oregon. I graduated from Mills Colege with a B.A. in Anthropology and Sociology.

I am honored and privileged to work alongside an amazing team of dedicated individuals that make of the fabric of Allegiant Partners.
My free time is spent raising my family and exploring the beautiful outdoors in our new home in central Oregon. I am a dedicated Bay Area sports fan (the Golden State Warriors and Oakland A’s are my teams), foodie, music lover, and Dave Matthews Band fanatic.
I’m the funding manager here at Allegiant Partners. The documentation and funding department handles all the lease and loan paperwork, which means we work directly with customers and suppliers to facilitate smooth and efficient transactions. I’ve been working in documentation & funding since 2004 and earned the Certified Leasing & Finance Professional (CLFP) designation in 2013.
Born & raised on the coast of VA, I relocated to San Francisco on a whim back in 2004 after receiving a business degree at North Carolina State University. In my spare time, when I’m not at a SF Giants game with my husband, I can be found spoiling my furr-baby, catching up with my girlfriends, or reading an inspirational book. I also volunteer with a fun organization called SpreadKindness.org. I love to be outside in nature and my ideal day would consist of a beach cruiser, fish tacos, a margarita, & sunshine.
I joined Allegiant Partners back in 2013 after graduating from San Francisco State University.

I was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. After work and on the weekends I love spending time with my family and friends and exploring my own backyard.

I spend my free time with my lovely wife Kaaedee and my dog Dutch enjoying the outdoors in beautiful Bend, OR.
I was born in the San Francisco Bay Area, where I have lived most of my life. While I lived in other communities during college, at UC, San Diego and UC, Davis and while working as an Accounting Consultant at Peat Marwick, Sacramento, I have always been drawn back to the area where I was raised. Most recently, before joining Allegiant Partners in 2007, I established and cultivated my own company, providing accounting services to Bay Area businesses, while I raised my children. Currently I am the Vice President of Accounting, where I am involved in everything concerning the back-end accounting of our business, from booking and funding to payroll and the company financial statements.
When not working, I can be found traveling, spending time with my family, or enjoying any activity involving water, particularly swimming, snorkeling and boating. I love my Canadian roots, my Canadian husband and I am happiest when surrounded by family with my feet in the sand.
I was born in Florida, though my family moved to my mother’s home state of Oregon early in my childhood, allowing me to grow up in Central Oregon. After graduating from University of Oregon with a Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration, I began my career as a Business Banking Credit Underwriter at a regional bank. My wife and I relocated to our hometown of Bend, OR in 2015 and I took a job at a community bank, before joining Allegiant Partners in July, 2016. Here at AP, I work as a Senior Credit Analyst, underwriting credit requests for our various target industries. During my free time I enjoy spending time with my wife and young daughter. We love all the different outdoor activities available in Central Oregon including skiing, camping, fishing and hiking. I appreciate the opportunity to provide financing for our customers, while maintaining credit quality for our shareholders.
I was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. Despite the few years I spent in San Diego achieving my bachelor’s degree in marketing from San Diego State University, I have always called the Bay Area my home. I was very excited to join the Bay Area based Allegiant Partners in 2009 after I received my MBA in Marketing and Finance from California State University East Bay.
Currently, I am the Vice President of Marketing for Allegiant Partners and am responsible for the management and oversight of direct and indirect communication to business partners and customers within specified target markets.

Having spent most of my life in Northern California, I am proud to call the Bay Area my home. I graduated from the University of Puget Sound with a degree in English Literature.

I joined the ClearView Financial team in April 2013 as a National Account Manager. Before that, I spent 2 years working for a national finance company and 15 years at a local bank looking at equipment loans. I have owned my own collection agency and my own equipment finance company as well. Even after all this time, I thoroughly enjoy helping customers with their equipment financing needs and dreams and is why I have spent primarily my entire career in the same industry.
I have two small daughters and a wife that keep me extremely active with hiking, swimming, motorcycle riding and most other outdoor activities. I also enjoy spending time in my small apricot orchard, which is definitely more of a hobby and not a money maker.
My wife Linda and I love life in the Cascade Mountains near the town of Leavenworth, Washington where we raised three children and enjoy our two young grandsons. Of the many outdoor activities the area offers we enjoy bicycle rides, hiking, kayaking, and windy mountain roads in my Miata. Our 1950 Oldsmobile is our choice for cruising the Bavarian Village tourist town of Leavenworth and occasionally is my ride to AP Financing where I serve as a National Account Manager.
Decades of experience serving customers in sales along with my Business Degree from the University of Nebraska at Omaha, combine to make me a great choice to assist you in financing equipment to grow your business.
I have been a Sonoma County resident my entire life having recently moved to the East Bay.

Spent my earlier years in the construction business and then moved into route sales & delivery, spending a better part of 18 years with Coca-Cola, becoming 1 of 7 sales center managers here in Washington.

As an avid tournament fisherman, I spend a lot of my summer off hours on the water chasing the often allusive bass. As the weather cools, there is hunting, camping and riding the Harley!
I was born and raised in Fresno, California where I hung my hat for the first 26 years of my life. In 2004 I married my best friend and relocated to Henderson, Nevada making it our new home while I took on the challenge and opportunity to manage my father’s mortgage company. In 2009 my wife and I relocated once again to Bend, Oregon to settle down and raise our family.
In 2014 I was very excited to join a growing company here with Allegiant Partners. As a National Account Manager it’s my responsibility to communicate with business owners about their businesses specific financing needs as well as any help needed sourcing new or used equipment.
In my spare time, I enjoy taking road trips with my wife and three children if our schedule isn’t already packed full with sporting activities for the kids. Our summers are usually packed full with beach and camping trips while the winters include taking snowy adventures.

I was born in Portland Oregon, where I lived for a few years before my family relocated to Sisters, Oregon when I started school. Growing up in the mountains, living the outdoorsy lifestyle was truly the greatest blessing.
I attended Oregon State University in Corvallis (GO BEAVS). And received my Bachelor’s degree in Business Management and Administration, with an additional focus in Entrepreneurship, in 2012. I joined the Allegiant Partners team in 2014 as an Account Executive. Where I received the “Rookie of the year” award in sales.
Currently, I am a National Account Manager for Allegiant Partners, 20 miles down the road from where I grew up. I am a subject matter expert, and a financier of equipment in various industries. I earned my CLFP Associate designation in 2016.
In my spare time, I try to be outside as much as possible. Some of my hobbies include; hiking, fishing, biking, rafting, camping, tennis, golf, rock climbing and playing with my dog. My true passions are snowboarding and surfing.
I grew up in the West Suburbs of Minneapolis, MN. At the age of 20 I was hit with the "golf bug" and decided to move to Southern California. From the year 2000 to 2014 I was fortunate enough to travel the country via the golf business.
I am very grateful for the opportunity to join the Bend Team at Allegiant Partners. I am an Account Executive and work with FedEx Contractors. This is a new and exciting career for me and I am looking forward to the rewarding challenges it has to offer.
When I am not at work you can find me in a river fly fishing, enjoying a round of golf, or taking in beautiful Central Oregon with the love of my life.
I joined the team at Clearview Financial in March of 2005. I started my career in the industry on the credit side, focusing on broker syndications. I transitioned into an account manager a few years later, and have been doing it ever since. I graduated from Washington State University in December of 2000, where I studied Business and Communications. After graduating I worked as a Financial Advisor at The Hartford for several years, then ran my own business before coming over to Clearview/Allegiant Partners. I work out of our Wenatchee Branch. I believe my dedication to my clients, and reliability are why I’m a success in the financing industry. I am available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. When I’m not at work, I enjoy anything outdoors, including fishing and crabbing at our cabin in the San Juan Islands, hiking, or a nice day on the golf course.
I grew up in Walnut Creek, surrounded by my family and extended family. I left the Bay Area to go to the University of California, San Diego, where I love going back to visit my Alma Mater. After majoring in Sociology, I came back to my home town and joined Allegiant Partners as an Accounting Coordinator.
My position at Allegiant Partners has me facilitate payments to vendors as a part in the funding process. I work with the vendors to be sure that the equipment we finance is paid for. In addition to this responsibility, I also handle accounts payable in the accounting department.
Monday through Friday I am in the office, but on the weekends I am busy hiking the many beautiful hills of the Bay Area or spoiling my two adorable nieces rotten! I travel as much as my wallet allows and so far have had the opportunity to visit countries such as Vietnam, Thailand, and Australia, as well as other places in the United States. Along with my love for traveling, I am also an animal lover and one day hope to have my own Corgi to take on my adventures!

Hi my name is Martina and Customer Service is my Modus Operandi! My goal is to build long lasting relationship with our customers and bring them peace of mind knowing their business is in the best hands with Allegiant Partners. One of my favorite customer service quotes is by Walt Disney.
“Do what you do so well that they will want to see it again and bring their friends”
In my spare time I play roller derby and love hiking adventures.
I’m originally from a small town in New York called Washingtonville (current population 5,811 and growing!) but, like many of my Allegiant Partners colleagues, I eventually made my way to the Bay Area, where I ultimately ‘grew up’ and spent some of my best years. I’ve also spent a fair amount of time in Ohio, Massachusetts, Rhode Island and, most recently, Washington, where my wife and I are currently living, raising our beautiful daughter and cheering on the Seahawks.
I started working with AP just recently, focusing on Lead Development, Operations and occasionally direct Sales Support. So far, it’s been an exciting, challenging experience! I work with a great team and aspire to develop a long-lasting and mutually beneficial career within the company.
Offline, I spend much of my time with my family, within which animals currently outnumber humans. We’re all outdoorsy and, on a typical weekend, you may find us on any of the local hiking trails, fishing, camping or rafting the Wenatchee River. My personal goal is to one day hike the Pacific Crest Trail—currently slated to begin as soon as I’ve accrued 3-6 months of vacation time.
I started as a National Account Manager at Allegiant Partners in 2013, received my ALFP designation in April 2015, and CLFP designation in April, 2016. As an National Account Manager, I spend my days on the phone assisting business owners in sourcing and financing commercial equipment. I enjoy watching small and medium size business owners grow their businesses and achieve success through new equipment acquisitions. I also enjoy the relationships that I get to build as an equipment lessor.
I’ve lived in many places, but consider Bend Oregon, the best yet. While the snow in Park City is amazing and the mountains of Colorado are endless, the rivers of Oregon have hooked me. I spend my free time in the outdoors. I recently married and we just had a little girl. Neither make very good bait, so we end up doing lots of hiking the Cascade Mountain Range together. No matter what I am doing I try to do it with enthusiasm.
I spent my first 18 years growing up in the Spokane Valley with my two youngest siblings living the typical 1960’s childhood. My first full time job before I turned 18 was in sales and it took me little time to realize my calling.
I managed my own retail store at the age of 21 and left that in 1979 to take up a career in route sales for US Bakery (Franz Family Bakeries). After 23 years of very a successful career I had an opportunity to go to work for a friend starting an equipment finance company in 2000. Mike Arness founded ClearView Financial in Feb of 2000 and I spent the next year and a half learning the business and went to work for Mike in May of 2001.
My responsibilities as a National Account Manager at Allegiant Partners are to service the vendor relationships I have created over the years and to offer financing options to their clients. I personally take their customers through the entire process of getting an approval and setting them up with the terms that best fit their specific needs, then turn them over to my wonderful documentation and funding staff.
I have passed the Wrestling & Baseball coaching and refereeing on to the young guys and enjoy a relaxing golf game with my oldest grandson now-a-days, an occasional fish to fight and I’m a happy camper.
I am currently an Account Executive with AP Equipment Financing. My wife, Megan, and our four children live in beautiful Bend, Oregon. I grew up in Chico, CA and attended college at CSUC. In 94’, I became a Ski instructor at Lake Tahoe, CA and met my future wife. Two years later we moved to Bend, OR, and I continued as a ski instructor at Mt. Bachelor.
I played golf for the first time in central Oregon and I was immediately hooked, eventually becoming a golf professional three years later. This led to managing multimillion-dollar golf resorts, including two years in North Florida where one of my practice buddies was Bubba Watson…yes, Bubba had a big hook as a teenage golfer!!
I also became licensed insurance agent with Farmers Insurance in 2011, and this experience has helped build my skills with AP.
I am excited to bring my ability to listen and help with financial situations to the AP team. I’ve recently combined three of my favorite activities (run, bike and swim) by participating in Olympic triathlons. My free time is spent exercising, playing tennis or paddle boarding. My passions are steelhead fishing, training my hunting dog, water skiing and mountain biking.
I joined the Walnut Creek Allegiant team in May 2011 not five miles from the hospital I was born in. My early days as an intern were filled with lots of filing, scanning, and other administrative chores while also attending school full-time. Eventually I was fortunate enough to earn some phone-time and so began my career as an originator.
Currently I am the Director of Strategic Accounts for our parcel delivery program in Bend, OR. I oversee a team of six sales reps while also pursuing end-user opportunities of my own. To-date I have originated over $11,000,000 of equipment finance transactions, earned the CLFP designation, and starred in several YouTube videos for our website www.WorkTruckDirect.com
In my off hours I enjoy skiing, playing guitar, and picking up after my puppy “Artoo”.
