ECS Financial Services Recognized for 25 Years of Membership in ELFA

This month the Equipment Leasing and Finance Association (ELFA) recognized ECS Financial Services for 25 years of membership in the organization. ELFA is the premiere trade association representing companies in the nearly $1 trillion equipment finance sector.

Founded in 1962, ECS Financial Services started as a traditional accounting firm. Today, the firm has expanded into a full-service accounting firm and is driven by its mission to provide clients with world-class services. From portfolio management to accounting and tax services, ECS has the industry covered.

As a member of ELFA, ECS Financial Services joins forces with other leading companies in the equipment finance sector. ELFA members are the driving force behind the growth in the commercial equipment finance market and contribute to capital formation across the U.S.

The association’s 575 members include independent and captive equipment leasing and finance companies, banks, financial services corporations, broker/packagers and investment banks, as well as manufacturers and service providers. ELFA exists to provide member companies a platform to promote and advocate for the equipment finance industry, including attracting and developing new and diverse talent; a forum for professional development and training; and a resource that develops information about, and for, the industry.

ELFA President and CEO Ralph Petta congratulated ECS Financial Services on achieving 25 years of membership and thanked the company for its participation in and many contributions to the association and industry.

“Since its founding in 1961, ELFA has united the equipment finance industry under one umbrella to learn, do business and advocate for equipment finance and its important role in the U.S. economy,” said Petta. “Over the years, member companies have evolved and innovated to meet changing customer needs. This speaks to the strength and resilience of our industry as it equips American businesses to succeed and prosper. We congratulate all the companies celebrating milestone membership anniversaries in 2022.”

“It’s hard to believe 25 years have passed since we joined ELFA,” said ECS Principal Shari Lipski. “Being a member of the association has proven to be one of the best investments we’ve made to develop client relationships, access unparalleled resources, provide great networking and educational opportunities for our employees, and create lifeline friendships along the way. Everyone here at ECS looks forward to the next 25 years.”
