Quality Leasing, the commercial equipment financing subsidiary of the Tom Wood Group, hired Patrick R. O’Connor, CLFP, as a sales consultant.

O’Connor joined Quality Leasing with more than 12 years of experience in various financial industry roles, most recently managing TimePayment’s originations and syndications as director of sales and capital markets. As Quality Leasing’s newest sales consultant, O’Connor will leverage his knowledge and network to increase the company’s commercial equipment financing footprint and to contribute to the development of technology and process improvements currently underway at Quality Leasing.

“Pat’s detail-oriented relationship approach to sales makes him a fantastic fit for Quality’s cradle-to-grave customer service model,” G. Paul Fogle, CLFP, managing director of Quality Leasing, said. “As a CLFP with comprehensive financial knowledge coupled with his lending background, we are elated to add Pat as a remarkable resource for the entire Quality team.”

“I’m surrounded by a great team at Quality and I’m excited to work with my TPO friends and colleagues to help business owners secure competitive financing,” O’Connor said.

O’Connor will be working remotely from Quality Leasing’s satellite office in Exeter, NH. Prior to his TimePayment tenure, O’Connor led business development for the food and beverage vertical at LeaseQ. Before LeaseQ, he held senior financial positions at Life Solutions Group, Concord Wealth Management and New York Life.
