Gina Ringgenberg vice president and leasing manager, federal team

We recognize that in order for us to plan for future growth and sustainability, we need to find a way to develop our internal talent into solutions-based sales professionals,” said Art Hyman, senior vice president and manager, Key Government Finance.

January 19, 2015 – Key Equipment Finance, one of the nation’s largest bank-held equipment finance companies and an affiliate of KeyCorp (NYSE: KEY), today announced that Gina Ringgenberg has joined Key Equipment Finance as vice president and leasing manager for the company’s federal team.

Ringgenberg’s role is unique in that it marks the first time the federal group has hired a seasoned professional from the banking environment and will invest in a year of training to help her develop into a member of the federal sales team. Through this customized training program, Ringgenberg will build her foundational federal skills through rotational training from the company’s Colorado headquarters before moving to Reston, Virginia, where she will be based.

“Like the equipment finance industry overall, the federal finance market has a limited pool of skilled sales professionals. We recognize that in order for us to plan for future growth and sustainability, we need to find a way to develop our internal talent into solutions-based sales professionals,” said Art Hyman, senior vice president and manager, Key Government Finance. “Gina has an outstanding track record for project management and client service and will make an excellent addition to the Key Government Finance sales team.”

Adam Warner, president of Key Equipment Finance, spearheaded the Equipment Leasing and Finance Association’s (ELFA) Emerging Talent initiative during his tenure as the ELFA’s chairman of the board of directors in 2014. The goal of the Emerging Talent initiative is to help attract younger and emerging talent to the equipment finance industry.

“Our industry is focused on young and emerging leaders. In order to sustain our companies and our industry, we have to find creative ways to attract new people with new ideas to careers in equipment leasing and finance,” said Warner. “We hope this innovative model of building an equipment leasing professional from the ‘ground up’ will repeat itself to grow our team of skilled sales professionals to keep up with the growing demands of federal finance.”

Ringgenberg joined KeyCorp in 2003 and has held several roles with increasing responsibility within the company over the past 13 years, including serving as associate vice president, KeyBanc Capital Markets and, most recently, vice president, strategic partner management. Prior to joining KeyCorp, she held several key roles with National City Corporation, KPMG and InfoEngineering, Inc.

Ringgenberg holds a master of science degree in electronic commerce from Carnegie Melon University and master of business administration from Tepper School of Business. She also holds a bachelor’s degree from John Carroll University in management and humanities.
