You may be familiar with commercial lending and finance, but if you don’t know much about the smaller niche industry of equipment leasing don’t feel bad – neither did many of Odessa’s employees when they first joined the company.

However, they quickly learned that today’s global leasing industry is the engine that drives so many market segments– think fleets of trucks, aviation, IT and medical equipment – and with its advanced ERP solution, LeaseWave, Philadelphia-based Odessa has poised itself as this niche industry’s disruptor.

With LeaseWave at its core, Odessa’s platform integrates lease and loan management, fleet administration, mobility, and detailed analytics into customer-friendly partner portals, garnering Odessa a coveted roster of clients and more Equipment Leasing and Finance Association (ELFA) Operations and Technology Excellence Awards than any other company.

Perhaps that’s why Odessa employees stay so motivated and inspired – they proudly tout their tech as the premium technology solution to be beat in the industry. Odessa talent acquisition manager Ryan Amaya was fresh to the leasing industry himself when he joined the company’s headquarter office at Two Liberty Place less than a year ago.

“When we’re hiring we don’t necessarily put a huge emphasis on leasing experience because it’s such niche experience,” explains Amaya. “We instead focus on looking at our employee profiles -  what are some of the factors that stood out, what are the companies they came from, and educational experience.”

While most of Odessa’s global teams work out of the company’s Bangalore, India offices, the company’s HQ is in Philadelphia and they are preparing to move into a new and bigger space (also at Two Liberty Place), one that will accommodate an anticipated doubling of staff within about two years.
