Prior to founding Global Financial & Leasing Services and before earning a reputation in the industry as a successful leasing executive while starting other equipment financing companies, Jim “JD” Jenks served in the U.S. Army and is a Vietnam veteran. Jim not only served his country in the 45th surgical hospital, also he earned the Bronze Star Medal, which is awarded for heroic or meritorious achievement or service. Character and leadership – both are instilled in Jim, and both run deep in Global Financial & Leasing Services. Also, both run deep in our client’s businesses.
In 2009 during the Great Recession, he created Global Financial as a financing provider for small- to mid-sized businesses and professionals with credit blemishes that shut them out of traditional credit markets. Access to financing was needed in the tightening credit industry. Numbers on paper shouldn’t be the only factor taken into consideration when it comes to deciding whether a company can finance the equipment needed for business. Jim stepped up and did what was necessary, always has.
As a private veteran-owned business, Global Financial can take character into account along with financial performance and credit scores. As far as Jim and his team are concerned, serving our country speaks to an applicant’s character. It’s a business philosophy that resonates in the marketplace, considering Global Financial is one of the largest veteran-owned companies in the Phoenix, AZ area.
Jim and his team believe in making a difference. He is actively involved in S.E.E.4 Vets and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. Whether it’s in business or in the community, Global Financial & Leasing Services leads. Jim and his team know no other way. If you have a business that needs equipment and a financing provider who values your character as much as your credit score, contact us today.
