Robert L. Hornby, Co-Chair of Chiesa Shahinian & Giantomasi PC’s (“CSG”) Equipment Leasing & Asset Based Lending Group, has been elected to the Board of Directors of the National Equipment Finance Association (“NEFA”). His election was announced at NEFA’s 2018 Funding Symposium in Charlotte, NC.

NEFA is a national association serving independent, middle-market equipment finance companies, lessors and brokers. Membership on the association’s board is reserved to 13 members who have demonstrated leadership in the leasing industry.

“Robert is a tremendous addition to the NEFA Board of Directors. He has been an active member of the association for years and is certain to bring fresh perspectives and valuable insights to the association’s leadership,” said Michael Toglia, NEFA’s Executive Director.

“It is a great honor to be selected by my peers to contribute toward NEFA’s ultimate mission of facilitating success among its membership,” said Hornby on the appointment. “I look forward to working closely alongside fellow members of the leadership team in developing valuable programs to the benefit of our member base, which today represents nearly 300 companies across the country.”

Hornby represents national and regional banks and finance companies in all aspects of equipment leasing, asset based lending and civil litigation in New York and New Jersey state and federal courts, including matters in United States Bankruptcy Courts. He regularly counsels clients on a variety of matters unique to the equipment finance and leasing industry – ranging from drafting master documentation to the enforcement of lessors’ and secured creditors’ rights.

A thought leader in his field, Hornby co-authored Secured Transactions For The Practitioner: How to Properly Perfect Your Personal Property Lien And Assure Priority – a guide well-respected within the equipment finance community. Additionally, he serves as a member of the Lease Enforcement Attorney Network and the Equipment Leasing and Finance Association.
