About Rosanne

I have owned and operated 1st Independent Leasing, Inc. in Beaverton, OR for 25 years now. I founded this company in 1990. I provide equipment loans, equipment leases, Working Capital loans, SBA loans, & Accounts Receivables financing on a nationwide basis. I was nominated for the “Most Influential Women In Leasing” Award in 2009 by Leasing News and currently serve on Leasing News Advisory Board. I am married and have 3 grown children, 3 grandchildren, and one great grandchild. I love to travel and we own a timeshare in Las Vegas that we frequent as often as we can. We were married in Las Vegas so it is very sentimental to us. I am an avid reader and gardener.
