Greg Badger, Head of Truist Equipment Finance Corp., announced the company has hired Scott Lackovitch as Head of CCB Originations and promoted Craig Hannon to Head of Aviation Originations.

Scott Lackovitch will be returning to Truist as Head of CCB Originations within the Equipment Finance Group.  Lackovitch most recently served as the Director of Sales and Marketing for Truist Equipment Finance and as the National Sales and Marketing Manager with BB&T Equipment Finance.  In those positions, he led all the direct sales functions across the United States, which focused on providing customized financing solutions to commercial and corporate clients.  Scott joined Truist in 2006 to help grow the Equipment Finance Group.  Prior to that, he spent 16 years with Ford Credit where he held numerous management positions in Risk, Marketing/Advertising, Strategy, Operations/Compliance and Sales Leadership.  He will be based out of Jacksonville, FL. CCB is a core element of TEFC’s business and manages in excess of $2.5B in assets. Scott’s expertise will allow TEFC to continue to service our clients’ needs and grow an already diverse portfolio. 

Craig Hannon has been named Head of Aviation Originations.  In this role, Craig will continue to cover the majority of the southern states on a direct basis as well as leading the Truist Aviation Originations team.  His focus will primarily be on working with OEMs, Dealers/Brokers and the broader aviation community.  Craig has more than 24 years of experience in the Equipment Finance industry, with the last 18 years in Aviation Finance.  Hannon joined Truist in 2017 and has worked previously with GE Capital, Wells Fargo Equipment Finance and RBS/Citizens in similar roles.  He will be based out of Austin, TX. Under Craig’s direction, the Aviation team is well positioned to grow an aviation portfolio that already exceeds $1B in assets today.  

Badger stated “I am thrilled to add these two teammates to the management team. Both individuals will provide valuable industry knowledge and experience, and augment an existing team of seasoned industry professionals.”
