The Equipment Leasing and Finance Association announces that Allyson Gale has joined the organization as Director, Federal Government Relations, effective July 1.

In this role, Gale will be a critical part of the ELFA Federal Government Relations team. She will advocate on behalf of the industry on legislative and regulatory matters; manage ELFA’s political action committee, LeasePAC; and coordinate the Capitol Connections program, ELFA’s fly-in program. She will work with ELFA team member Andy Fishburn, CLFP, VP of Federal Government Relations.

Previously, Gale spent nearly eight years working at the National Association of Federally-Insured Credit Unions (NAFCU), now America’s Credit Unions. During that time she served as a legislative lobbyist, membership experience and engagement strategist, and most recently was their Senior Director of Political Affairs, overseeing their political programs, NAFCU/PAC and grassroots efforts. Prior to her time representing the credit union industry, she worked on Capitol Hill for Congressman Ted Poe (TX-02).

“We are delighted to welcome Ally to ELFA’s Federal Government Relations team,” said ELFA President and CEO Leigh Lytle. “Her wealth of knowledge and experience in advocacy, the financial services sector and Congressional legislation make her an outstanding asset to the association’s federal advocacy efforts on behalf of our members and the equipment finance industry.”
