Boyer will be formally recognized during a ceremony at ELFA’s Capitol Connections event on Wednesday, May 17, in Washington, D.C.

    ELFA President and CEO Ralph Petta said, “As the leading advocate for the equipment finance industry, ELFA plays a critical role in representing our industry before federal and state policymakers, regulators and standards-setting bodies. We wouldn’t be successful without the outstanding efforts of members like Rob Boyer. For more than a decade, Rob has worked tirelessly to help educate lawmakers about issues of concern to our industry, advancing the ELFA advocacy agenda and raising awareness of the value of the $1 trillion equipment finance industry to the U.S. economy. It is an honor to present this well-deserved award to Rob.”

     

    Boyer said, “It’s with honor and gratitude that I accept the David H. Fenig Distinguished Service in Advocacy Award. Government regulations and laws have profound impacts on our businesses. I believe that acting as an ambassador for our industry, clients and associates is a critical function of my role as a leader. Engaging in this process over the years with other leaders and our ELFA Government Relations team on state and federal issues has shown me that collectively and collaboratively, we are capable of shaping policy and orchestrating change. I would like to commend the ELFA and our Government Relations team for their dedication to continually enhancing our advocacy program. They truly punch above their weight-class.”
