CIT, a division of First Citizens Bank, is launching a new lending and leasing vertical focused on financing fleet golf cars, turf (grounds care) equipment, utility vehicles and similar equipment.

Golf & Turf is part of CIT’s Business Capital group, which is already a national leader in equipment financing solutions for small and mid-size businesses across a wide range of market sectors, including technology, office imaging, printing, construction, industrial and many others.

Leading the new vertical is Shawn Foy, a veteran banker with more than 20 years of experience, including 14 years devoted exclusively to golf financing. He will be joined by other team members experienced in financing and underwriting golf- and turf-related equipment.

“With the creation of this new Golf & Turf finance team, we see an attractive opportunity to leverage CIT’s longstanding lending and leasing expertise to support a whole new array of prospective customers,” said Mike Jones, president of CIT’s Business Capital group. “Also, CIT’s recent merger with First Citizens makes us stronger and brings additional relationships that will help us provide more products to this market and better support its equipment financing needs.”

“Shawn Foy is well-known and respected throughout the industry for his expertise and customer-centric approach,” said Ken Martin, managing director of Business Capital. “We are pleased to welcome him and the rest of his Golf & Turf team and look forward to their efforts in helping grow our business by introducing our lending and leasing solutions to a new range of vendors and clients.”

The Golf & Turf finance team is part of CIT's Business Capital group, which empowers small and mid-size businesses by providing equipment financing solutions via technology-enabled platforms and market-leading structuring expertise.
