Lake Success, N.Y., December 1, 2016—Advantage Funding, Inc., a leader in U.S. ground-transportation finance, today announced the hiring of Scott Burnett to broaden sales in the company’s Class-8, vocational-truck and tow-truck financing business. As Regional Sales Manager, Burnett will handle accounts in South Florida, portions of North Florida and sections of southern Georgia and Alabama.

“Scott’s considerable experience in leasing and the commercial truck market will benefit customers in both our truck-load and vocational truck segments,” said Carol Dmytriw, National Sales Manager, Truck Division. “Today’s commercial customers expect financing solutions that are designed for their business as well as responsive, personalized service. Scott will bring both of these critical offerings and more to businesses in the markets we serve.”
