By Dean Waters, President - SANY America Capital
I want to first thank everyone for the warm reception I received on my first day at SANY. As an introduction, I have over 25 years of diversified financial, operational and capital markets experience. I began my finance career with NationsBank, now Bank of America and rose through the ranks there culminating in being the Managing Director of Equity Syndications for the bank’s equipment finance division.
After Bank of America, I was a member of a team that formed an equipment finance division at GMAC Commercial Finance and at Synovus Bank. In addition to my equipment finance experience, I started an investment banking firm, 5Fold Capital. 5Fold Capital focused on raising capital for community banks and developing alternative lending platforms as well as providing a diversified suite of consulting services to banks and middle-market companies.
In my career, I have been fortunate to have structured and financed over $5 billion in transactions ranging from corporate and commercial aircraft, construction equipment, transportation assets and a broad range of general equipment as well as cross-border, renewable energy and project finance transactions. I have also been the Chief Financial Officer of a small-cap publicly traded company and currently hold series 62, 63, and 79 securities registrations. I graduated from East Carolina University with a BS in Economics and received my MBA with Honors from Wake Forest University.
I am eagerly looking forward to meeting everyone and working toward making SANY America Capital a major sales partner of SANY. SANY America Capital’s primary mission is to assist in the sale of SANY equipment by providing impeccable customer service and low-cost financial solutions to SANY’s customer base, including dealers and end-users.
As of this writing (my third day), I have identified a number of key projects:
I welcome all of your input and ideas as we build out SANY America Capital. I need your market feedback on what our competitors are providing in terms of financing alternatives and options, so we can be on equal footing with our competition. I also plan to meet with each of you individually to get your ideas, suggestions, and needs from SANY America Capital. I cannot promise we can do everything, but we are going to certainly give it 110% within legal, ethical, and moral boundaries including taking risk where necessary and when we do, in a prudent manner.
I am very excited to join the SANY team and see a great deal of potential and opportunity in front of us. I look forward to working with each of you, listening to your ideas and your constructive criticism of our new direction. I can be reached at email@example.com for questions or additional information.
