RENO, Nev., Jan. 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- After reviewing the results of a recent industry survey, The Alta Group is increasing its focus on delivering high quality professional development services to equipment leasing and asset finance companies.
Among other findings, most industry executives surveyed by Alta (78%) did not feel their company's professional development efforts were fully aligned with business goals. Alta is addressing this need in multiple ways, notes Tony Mynsted, the Alta director who conducted the survey.
First, Alta specializes in customized services that reflect the specific needs of businesses in the equipment leasing and asset finance industry, explains Alta CEO John C. Deane. This allows Alta professional development services to target each client's business challenges related to risk management, credit policy and underwriting, sales, customer service, regulatory compliance, portfolio performance, leadership skills, and/or other requirements. Customized services also enable Alta to deliver instruction in the formats that make the most sense for each business, ranging from classroom instruction and mentoring programs, to web-enabled options.
Second, Alta's professional development facilitators are industry experts who draw on their own knowledge and that of their colleagues in management, business development, sales, operations, risk assessment, tax and accounting, legal matters, and asset management. Headed by Alta Managing Director Shawn D. Halladay, well known for his publications and courses in the equipment leasing and asset finance industry, Alta professional development services also involve an increasing number of the firm's global consultants.
Third, Alta focuses on improving workforce education and skills to achieve concrete business results. "Alta measures success by the impact that our programs have on our clients' bottom-line profitability," Halladay says.
