LEAF Commercial Capital, Inc. (“LEAF”), a specialized equipment leasing and finance company headquartered in Philadelphia, PA, has announced its selection as the exclusive finance partner for Herman Miller, Inc. and its dealer network. Herman Miller, established in 1923, is a globally recognized innovator in contemporary interior furnishings, furniture systems, personal work accessories, related technologies and strategic services.
Herman Miller Financial Solutions, powered by LEAF, will offer a wide range of flexible and creative financing options. “We chose LEAF because their dedicated sales resources, extensive technology capabilities and flexibility in underwriting our diverse customers will provide our dealers and clients with the exceptional service and support that is synonymous with the Herman Miller brand.” said Drew Nielsen, Herman Miller Vice President of Distribution Channels. “LEAF will be tightly integrated with the Herman Miller sales team and our dealers to proactively position financing as part of our solution. Just as with our Living Office insights, which recognize that a one-size-fits-all, off-the shelf solution for an optimal workplace does not exist; LEAF customizes every financing arrangement to address the individual needs of the customer. This relationship is an excellent fit, and we are excited to implement Herman Miller Financial Solutions, powered by LEAF, to better serve the needs of our customers.”
“LEAF’s strong reputation in the marketplace is due to our ability to design financing programs that are specifically tailored to the unique needs of our customers,” stated Crit DeMent, Chairman and CEO of LEAF. “We adapt and tailor our programs to the way our partners do business; this approach mirrors the philosophy and practice of the Herman Miller organization.
