This blog is about people in our industry who have chosen the road(s) less traveled and were rewarded for doing so. When first conceived, Leasing Avenues, was dedicated to pioneers who were trailblazers forging new paths that over time became the well-traveled, well-mapped highways we take for granted today. The relaunch of Leasing Avenues is still focused on interviewing pioneers of the past. However, we also will be adding interviews with the contemporaries who are forging something new in our industry, with technology, new paradigms, or just fresh ideas to inspire professionals in the equipment leasing and finance industry.

I hope you will enjoy these videos, comment on them, and recommend trailblazers you know for this blog.
