Two years after graduating from the University of Manitoba, Tom Pundyk joined National Vehicle Leasing, which at the time was a division of The Megill Stephenson Company Ltd. In 1977, recognizing an opportunity in the market, the company entered into its first equipment lease and National Leasing was born with Tom Pundyk and founding President and CEO Nick Logan at the helm. Over 40 years later, National Leasing is Canada’s largest and longest standing equipment financing company with over $2.6 billion assets under management and a multiple-time employee engagement award recipient.
Tom headed most departments at National Leasing before becoming President in 2013 and CEO a year later. Under Tom’s leadership, National Leasing continues to grow and provides renowned service to its clients by working closely with equipment suppliers to customize financial arrangements for Canadian business owners. In March 2018, Tom passed the torch to current President & CEO, Michael Dubowec. He plans to continue working with National Leasing in an advisor role until his official retirement on October 31, 2018.
