Orion First has named Jaimie Haver, CLFP its new Senior Vice President and Director of Contract Operations. A veteran of the field, Haver has been responsible for building back offices for scaling companies, including banks and independent lessors.

“We are very excited to have Jaimie joining the team here at Orion,” says President Quentin Cote. “She brings a strong operational process focus and an ability to build strong and trusted relationships with her industry peers. It’s a rare combination of skills. It blends perfectly with Orion’s culture.”

Haver will be filling the role left by Jenny Dubinsky, CPA, CLFP, who has stepped down to pursue other career goals, leaving behind a contract operations department that is stronger and more robust than ever. In a role that depends on both relationship-building, leadership, and process discipline, Haver embodies all three. “She’ll help strengthen our focus on providing a meaningful partnership with each of our clients,” says Cote.

In previous roles, Haver inspired colleagues with her passion for the industry, enthusiasm for impeccable service, consistency, compliance, and decisiveness. Her open communication and leadership style enables her to improve team performance and to course-correct quickly when necessary. As a leader in equipment finance, Orion is deeply invested in the improvement and advocacy of the industry. Haver shares this commitment, according to the Monitor Daily, “believing it is essential for equipment finance businesses to self-police and enforce better practices.”

Haver serves as a Member of the Equipment Finance Cares Advisory Council and is chair of the fundraising committee. She has also served on both the ELFA Women’s Council, the subcommittee for the ELFA Women in Leadership Mentoring Program, and was a long-time board member of Beyond Blindness, formerly known as Blind Children’s Learning Center in Tustin, California.

“We are thrilled to have Jaimie on the team,” says Dave Schaefer, Orion’s CEO. “It’s rare to find someone of Jaimie’s caliber who also knows our company as well as many of our clients. She’ll be able to hit the ground running and help Orion get to the next level.”
