WHO FINAPROS IS
Financial Pro Solutions, or Finapros as we like to call ourselves, has been around since 2008. Its principal, Hal Horowitz, has been making financial placements going back to 1997. Prior to that was a financial professional himself, starting his career in consumer as a credit officer and then loan office manager before moving into commercial finance and asset based lending and ultimately into the equipment leasing and financing sector, first on the credit side and then moving into sales and vendor relationship management. He served as Executive Vice President for Balboa Business Credit and later as President and CEO of Certified Lease Consultants.
During this era Hal was active in one of the major regional equipment leasing trade associations, the Western Association of Equipment Lessors as its leaders in its efforts to create a set of industry standards, to improve its educational programs and to create a recognized certified designation of its members and later the industry. In 1988 Hal was in the first battery of eight newly-inducted Certified Lease Professionals. In 1992 Hal served as the Association's president and was key in moving it toward a national profile as the United Association of Equipment Lessors. Today it is the august, nationwide National Equipment Finance Association.
Hal wrapped up his financial career during the mid-1990s as a consultant to banks with leasing portfolios who were going through the difficult process of converting their accounting and lease-management systems, almost en masse, from either bound ledger or batch entry to the new technology of the day, to validate the compliance qualifications of individual lease transactions.
In 1997 he reinvented himself as a recruiter serving the financial, accounting and banking industries and disciplines.
Unfortunately all of this has led Hal to think more highly of himself than he deserves, but he really is a nice guy to work with.
