Northbrook, Ill., November 21, 2018 — ECS Financial Services, Inc., an accounting firm that specializes in lease portfolio management, is proud to announce that ECS Manager Anne Dalgaard, CPA, CLFP, has been elected onto the National Equipment Finance Association (NEFA) Board of Directors.

In tandem with this new Board of Directors, Michael Toglia was appointed to be the new Executive Director and CEO of NEFA at the 2018 NEFA Funding Symposium.

According to NEFA, the NEFA Board of Directors includes 13 members who have demonstrated leadership in the leasing industry, and represent a cross section of the membership. Alongside the board’s Executive Committee and Executive Director, the board is responsible for guiding the association’s agenda for the upcoming year. Some of the board’s other duties include planning the annual NEFA conferences in spring and fall 2019, advocating for NEFA members, and supporting the executive committee.

“It is an honor for me as a professional in the equipment leasing industry to be elected onto the NEFA Board of Directors, “Anne Dalgaard said. “This year’s board has a good mix of service providers and equipment lessors appointed, including a variety of ages and genders well represented. I’m excited to be a part of this change in the association and to see what the director is going to bring to this new environment.”

As the only accountant, Anne brings a unique perspective. She works alongside lawyers, business consultants and other leasing professionals on the board. She provides support to leasing clients and colleagues within the organization by being able to cross-reference other backgrounds.
