OUR STORY

Vantage was founded in 2011 by two industry veterans, Bob Murphy and Bill Foudray. They have over 40 years of combined equipment finance industry experience and wanted to help our clients grow and succeed by better managing their technology equipment.

 

By taking a long term relationship approach to client and partner relationships, Vantage believes that helping our clients succeed is the best way to build extremely loyal relationships. This is our founding principle and remains the heart and soul of Vantage Financial.

Over the course of the company's life we have forged strong partnerships and friendships with clients, vendors, and banks. We have an entrepreneurial spirit that rings throughout the company and we take great pride in our unmatched quality and service.

Today, we have established ourselves as a nationally recognized equipment leasing company with equipment leased in all 50 states. In 2022 Vantage was acquired by Peoples Bank and we will continue to operate as we always have, now with the backing of a $7.1 billion bank.

 

We are excited to see what our future holds as a part of Peoples Bank. With increased resources we will continue to grow and implement innovative solutions to assist our clients and partners in strategically acquiring their technology.
