Alexandria, Minnesota-based Geneva Capital, which finances equipment purchases in multiple industries including signage and graphics, announces the promotion of Andrew Cavers as its new president.
Cavers joined Geneva Capital in 2005 as a regional sales manager primarily focused on providing equipment leasing and financing solutions to the Southeast region of the U.S. For the last 12 years he’s been the director of sales, overseeing all of the company’s regional sales managers across the nation. Under his leadership, the division expanded into several new markets and experienced growth of more than 680 percent.
“This promotion was a natural progression for Andrew, says Mark Watkins, Geneva Capital founder and CEO. “Not only is he a well-respected member of the Geneva family and fierce advocate for our company culture, he has the proven track-record, intellect and people skills needed to lead our team to the next level of our goal-oriented journey.”
Stepping away from his sales role, Cavers will focus on Geneva Capital’s long-term growth initiatives and work to guide the company toward their vision of becoming the nation’s premier equipment finance solution in their respective industries.
The director of sales vacancy left by Cavers will be filled by Troy Putnam. Putnam has been with the company for nearly 15 years and for the last 12 of those he has consistently ranked near the top among the company’s sales managers.
Finally, Geneva Capital has promoted Jamie DeBoer to regional sales manager. She has been a part of the company’s inside sales team for the past two years. She will be covering the company’s Midwest region.
Speaking of the changes in the company’s sales department, Cavers says, “Troy’s earned a high level of respect from his peers here at Geneva and has become a household name in the industry. He brings an unmatched level of expertise to his new role and will no doubt drive our sales team to the next level. He leaves big shoes to fill, but we have the utmost confidence in Jamie’s ability to step into the role and push it to new heights.”
