Know More Media, an online publisher of business information and news, has partnered with leasing expert Shawn D. Halladay of The Alta Group to write authoritative content for Know More Media’s new blog on the global equipment leasing and asset finance industries, LeasingNotes.com. LeasingNotes.com provides a discussion of best practices, regulations, financing, interest rates, residuals, captive finance, tax and accounting regulations, vendors, banks, financing sources, operating vs. capital leases, and other related equipment leasing topics.
Shawn D. Halladay has more than 25 years of worldwide experience as an equipment leasing trainer, lessor, consultant, and auditor. A member of the Equipment Leasing Association (ELA), Mr. Halladay is currently a leasing consultant and the managing principal of The Alta Group's Professional Development Division. He has authored or co-authored eight books on equipment leasing, including A Guide to Equipment Leasing, An Introduction to Leasing, and The Handbook of Equipment Leasing.
“My goal with LeasingNotes.com is to thoroughly explore the applications and practices of equipment leasing around the world, including all the similarities and differences between locales,” said Shawn Halladay. “I expect the discussions to be wide ranging, always informative, and often evocative. The topics covered will be from the simple to the complex, dollar outs to LILOs, and everything in between.”
Mr. Halladay possesses a degree in Accounting, as well as an MBA degree. He began his career as an auditor with Arthur Andersen & Co, where he became licensed as a CPA and got his first exposure to real world leasing. Since then, he has performed lease/buy analyses as a lessee, closed deals as a lessor, and solved numerous leasing problems in his current role as a consultant to the leasing industry, working for The Alta Group. The Alta Group provides a broad range of equipment leasing and asset finance services to businesses, manufacturers, vendors, banks, governments, and independent lessors around the world.
