Leadership

Chief Executive Officer

Gary Amos

Forward-thinking CEO with an eye on leading innovation targeted at accelerating the processes and customer interface, creating a more valuable customer experience. Leading teams in the Financial Services space, I have experience managing & assessing growth opportunities & market trends up to $1+ billion portfolio size, including financing for healthcare, industrial tech, manufacturing, software, and consumer litigation finance. With global megatrends, such as the Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI) and digitalization shifting today’s vertical markets – my passion and focus are creating velocity in the user experience and position financial solutions as an enabler for better outcomes. Leading our team with an innovative mindset focused on enabling digital transformation for products and processes, we grow by empowering others.

Currently leading a Financial Services platform acquired by 3 Private Equity firms. Our team is focused on delivering solutions to enable attorneys & plaintiffs for the best possible outcome in their personal injury cases. We are highly motivated to support plaintiffs/attorneys to pursue rightful settlements supporting clients' financial needs in order to provide the necessary time attorneys require to complete the legal process. Using digital techniques, our ambition is to challenge the standardization in our space by automating processes, creating portals and maintaining client engagement...all with the client in mind and how they prefer to engage our platform.

Formerly holding the role of CEO Commercial Finance Americas, my prior experience includes integrating with our clients and holistically positioning financing as a solution based on usage and performance alongside traditional equipment finance products, creating a cultural mindset shift in the equipment finance space. I joined SFS in 2007 as vice president and national sales manager and was tasked with setting the strategic direction for SFS’ Industrial Leasing platform. This high performing team, with a key concentration in middle and large ticket structured leases and loans within the industrial sector, with special emphasis on marine, rail, air, food/beverage, and chem/pharma products.
