Sterling Bank Recruits Executives to Launch

New Equipment Leasing Division



HOUSTON—Sterling Bank, a subsidiary of Sterling Bancshares, Inc. (NASDAQ: SBIB), announced today the hiring of four leading professionals in the field of business equipment leasing.  These experienced professionals represent the bank’s initial staff in the leasing and equipment-financing division it is developing. 


This new division of the bank will be called SilverMark Capital™ and will provide equipment-leasing services to bank customers and to select national vendor relationships.


“Offering an in-house business equipment leasing program is a logical step in providing full-service banking to our customers,” commented Sterling Bank President and Chief Executive Officer J. Downey Bridgwater.  “Our philosophy is that to be the best, you get the best people.  That’s why we’re proud to bring aboard these four professionals.  In our opinion they represent the industry’s best in the field of commercial leasing services.”


The four leasing professionals are Frederick M. Van Etten, Richard S. Andersen, Daniel L. Fritz, and Hernan R. Traversone.


·Fred Van Etten, named CEO of the leasing division, has over 25 years’ experience in the commercial leasing and asset-financing marketplace. Most notably he was co-founder, executive vice president and chief marketing officer for First Sierra Financial, a successful company which was sold to American Express in 2001.  He holds a business administration degree from Arizona State University and an MBA from Pepperdine University.





Ric Andersen, senior vice president and chief operating officer of the leasing division, was director of vendor services and capital markets for American Express Business Finance, Inc., and directed portfolio acquisition and syndication there.  He began his banking career while completing a BA in economics and finance at the University of Colorado at Boulder, where he became president and CEO of the student credit union.  He has over 15 years’ experience in finance and commercial leasing.



·Danny Fritz, senior vice president and chief marketing officer for the leasing division, previously served as global business development manager for Hewlett Packard Financial Services, Inc., where he was responsible for portfolio management, business strategies, pricing, policies and procedures, as well as global marketing of lifecycle management programs.  He has 15 years of experience in the leasing industry and holds a BA in finance from the University of Texas.


·Hernan Traversone, senior vice president and chief credit officer for the division, previously served as director of originations for the Houston credit operation of American Express Business Finance, Inc.  Prior to that he was vice president of wholesale operations for First Sierra Financial, Inc., where he also oversaw credit, documentation, and funding procedures. He has over 11 years of experience in consumer and commercial underwriting.


Earlier this year, Sterling Bank was named to FORTUNE Magazine’s 2003 List of the 100 Best Places to Work in America.  With assets of $3.4 billion, it operates 35 banking offices in the greater metro areas of Dallas, Houston and San Antonio.  Sterling Bank is a subsidiary of Sterling Bancshares, Inc., whose common stock is traded through the Nasdaq National Market System under the symbol SBIB.

Pictures from the Past---1995---

McCommon,  Malone, Monlux, Lowe, Wehner, Dislip, Kruse





“Left to right—Jim McCommon, LaVergne Malone, Cliff Monlux, Loretta Lowe, Skip Wehner, Alan Dishlip, and John Kruse packing heat at Wings Over the Rockies (Denver, Colorado United Association of Equipment Leasing Conference)

June,1995, Regional Report, United Association of Equipment Leasing




Kruse-Brady-Monlux Go MainStreet Finance



“Thanks so much for your recent posting of the MainStreet Finance Press

Release,” John Kruse said in his e-mail.” We have been buried with calls and interest pertaining to the different products that we are starting to offer to the leasing market.

John Kruse


Kruse is Vice President of Business Finance and Managing Partner with MainStreet. He is very well-known in the leasing industry, contributing

both time and support to several leasing associations. He presently

serves on the board of directors of the United Association of Equipment




“There is definitely a strong interest in other forms of finance products

that these companies can market back to their existing customers and

prospects, “ he explains about his new company. ” There is also an even stronger, obvious, interest in adding more profit to the bottom line without adding any additional overhead.


“The Company will be delivering their services through marketing and service relationships with independent CPA firms, small banks, equipment finance companies and manufacturers who focus on service to small business owners.


MainStreet is the brainchild of Jim Brady, Cliff Monlux and Kruse, who together represent over 40 years of experience working in the specialty finance market. MainStreet is exceptional in offering access to several forms of financing from a number of different lenders across the US through one highly efficient central service point.


The idea is to help equipment leasing finance companies leverage their marketing investment for more revenue and stronger client relationships, introducing other

products and acting as intermediaries for additional fee benefit plus service

to their customers.


 "Companies that currently offer only equipment leasing and loans can now offer other forms of financing to their lessee customers with minimum additional cost and significant upside revenue potential,"  Kruse explains.  With their contacts, information, experience, MainStreet can increase yields, fees, and help maintain

their customer base by offering more financial services..


 “l am  very fortunate to be working with Jim Brady and Cliff Monlux again,”  Kruse says.” It's refreshing to work alongside partners who

you can trust and who's interest lies in creating quality products that

offer true value to the customer.  Much like the early days of System 1.”


System 1 was the software product and company name which started in 1995, which took both the broker and small to medium lessor/discount marketplace by storm.  It was first introduced for a nominal dollar amount at leasing conferences, then part of a package for joining leasing associations, with the two fold process of getting the first version out and working, and tying companies into a yearly

contract for maintenance plus upgrades. As the company developed more “sophisticated programs, the company name changed in 1999 to CapitalStream. The System 1 Software name changed to 'Advantage', as it is today.  The company was spun off to Jim Buckles, who manages it today. 


Cliff Monlux and John Kruse started System 1 with Jim McCommon’s company

Beta number one (see the 1995 Picture from past above this story).  Kruse met Jim Brady when he was at MetLife Capital where he purchased our System 1 product.   After GE purchased and subsequently closed MetLife Capital. Brady became vice-president of Marketing at CapitalStream.  Jim was at CapitalStream for approximately 2.5 years.


Jim Brady


"MainStreet is all about finding credit for small business," said Jim Brady, Senior Managing Partner of MainStreet Finance. "We work with our service partners, namely CPAs, banks and other channels to define the credit needs of their clients and help them quickly find and qualify for appropriate financing at competitive rates" added Brady.


MainStreet offers their channel partners the benefit of personal advice and assistance in serving their clients as well as convenient online access to information, qualification tools and application forms.


"MainStreet represents an innovative approach to the challenge of small business credit in a number of ways" said Cliff Monlux, co-Senior Managing Partner of MainStreet. "Foremost is the idea of using professional channels for more efficient access to the small business client" added Monlux.

    Pictures from the Past---2002---Rick Wilbur/Jim Buckles




The famous Rick Wilbur of MediCap-lessor/discounter/superbroker/broker/

bon vivant with System 1/Software Expert Jim Buckles.


“The handsome young man in the middle is my son Carey who is also my partner. I have no idea what we were doing there because I'm old forgetful. Carey on the other hand was probably trying to learn more about the capabilities of Capital Stream.


“I think the industry is beginning to catch it's collective breath and

business is getting much stronger. Our volume is increasing and the quality

of credit appears to be getting better.






From Jim Buckles--


“The picture was taken at the NAELB Regional Conference in Marina Del Rey

last November. I was discussing the latest features of Advantage version

2.0 (the successor to the System 1 software program) with Rick & Carey

Wilbur. This version will be available Q2 of this year and I will be

showing a "sneak peak" in Chicago for the NAELB National Convention 3/19 -

23. A free training session on 2.0 and a general discussion of Advantage

and alaQuote will be available to convention attendees on Thursday 3/19 from

1pm - 5pm.


“Since leaving CapitalStream 2 years ago and forming Preferred Broker

Solutions, I have been very fortunate to bring aboard two previous System 1

people. "Technical Guru", Trevor Thompson and "Developer Extraordinaire"

Tom Wynne. Both people have been a terrific asset to our company and have

allowed us to grow rather rapidly, keeping up with the constant demand of

offering superior software and the best possible customer support available

to the Leasing Community.


“We are experiencing a very steady growth with our Advantage customer base as

well as subscribers to our alaQuote program. alaQuote is our web based

quoting tool that furnishes a private label Lease Calculator, Custom Quote

Letter, Credit Application and Credit Release form which feeds application

data into Advantage. This program is extremely easy to use and furnishes a

professional web presence to any Leasing Professional's web site as well as

a private label offering to their vendors.


“The industry is definitely in a regroup and reorganize phase at the moment.

This is nothing new, we just haven't experienced this, at this depth, in a

long time. The upswing is inevitable. This is a great time to review how

we are all doing business, trim the fat, increase efficiencies, target new

markets and get moving. There is no doubt that some companies are still

doing deals, while others are just waiting for something to happen. These

times, you have to make it happen!


Jim Buckles




Housing Starts Highest Level 17 Years/ Economic Forecast


“We need a significant increase in business investment to support stronger job creation before the economy can sustain trend growth.   That will be a challenge with the current trends in job outsourcing (globalization impact) now spreading to white collar and professional jobs.  Additionally, productivity increases , made possible by the significant business investments made in the latter part of the 1990’s, are still paying off, thus allowing businesses to produce more with fewer employees. “


Here is the full report:



July starts were expected to pull back some as interest rates (30 year fixed as reported by Freddie Mac) reached 6.24 per cent, up a full percentage point from the 5.21 percent that prevailed in June.  Starts were up 1.5 % to 1.872 million (SAAR) while single family (SF) was up a strong 1.9% to a very respectable 1.521 million (SAAR).    The more volatile multi family (MF) sector fell a modest 0.6% to .351 million (SAAR).  Permits, an indicator of future activity, were off 2.4% to 1.78 million (SAAR).   Regionally, starts were up in all areas g except the West which fell almost 14%.




Analysis and outlook:  Housing starts reached their highest level in 17 years as residential construction activity was not affected by the recent rise in mortgage rates.  Mortgage rates have been moving up in recent weeks, driven by significant gains in 10 year Treasury yields, which are rising because the bond market believes the U.S. economic recovery is gaining strength. 


As pointed out to me by a friend and fellow Forest Service colleague (Dr.Henry Spelter), housing is “the Arnold Schwarzenegger of the economy”.  It remains one of the few bright spots in an otherwise lethargic economy.  The main concern going forward is whether housing will remain healthy enough to provide the rest of the economy needed support in its quest to return to trend growth (non inflationary rate of growth) of about 3% or more.  We need a significant increase in business investment to support stronger job creation before the economy can sustain trend growth.   That will be a challenge with the current trends in job outsourcing (globalization impact) now spreading to white collar and professional jobs.  Additionally, productivity increases , made possible by the significant business investments made in the latter part of the 1990’s, are still paying off, thus allowing businesses to produce more with fewer employees.


As we mentioned in last months’ housing report, current construction activity is running about 100,000 units per year above demographically supported “sustainable demand”. The bottom line is that housing can’t continue at the current pace, and eventually starts will trend down toward more sustainable levels.  That may not happen for awhile longer, but sooner or later, it will.   As the economy improves, interest rates will continue to trend upward, and this will negatively impact affordability, and nudge housing closer to trend levels.

Sunrise Int. Net Income Up 39 Percent Year-to-Date


GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn.,  -- Sunrise International Leasing Corporation (SILC), a wholly owned subsidiary of privately held King Capital Corp., today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2003.


For the quarter, SILC reported revenues of $13.9 million, compared to $31.7 million for the comparable 2002 period.  Second-quarter net income increased 9 percent to $3.7 million from $3.4 million for the prior-year period.


For the six months ended June 30, 2003, SILC reported revenues of $34.4 million, compared to $67.6 for the comparable 2002 period.  Net income increased to $8.5 million for the six-month period, up 39 percent from $6.1 million in 2002.


Although revenues are down significantly in the current year due to adverse economic conditions and a worldwide decrease in capital spending, SILC continues to record strong net income primarily as a result of a high level of lease renewals, improved margins on the sale of used equipment and reduced expenses.  Also, SILC's credit loss experience has consistently improved over the last several quarters, having a positive impact on provisions for losses.


The company remains debt free on its portfolio of nearly $100 million in gross earning equipment.  SILC has experienced substantial levels of free cash flow, allowing the company to aggregate a portfolio of over $60 million in cash and investments.  SILC is strategically managing this portfolio to ensure that it provides adequate yields and remains liquid enough for the company to capitalize on its new business ventures, which include a newly formed second placement division that actively solicits established, third-party lessors and captive leasing companies to refer lease transactions and lease lines of credit with companies that have limited credit options.




Consistent with the prior quarter, SILC experienced a modest increase in lease originations and expects this trend to further accelerate into the next quarter and to improve substantially in 2004 due to the implementation of major vendor programs that are currently being negotiated.  However, the company reiterated that it expects 2003 full-year revenues to be substantially lower than the $117.4 million recognized in the previous year.


SILC is actively searching for business partners that can benefit from the company's unique, highly successful vendor program business model, its customized information systems and unmatched servicing capabilities.


About Sunrise International Leasing Corporation 


SILC's business consists primarily of developing and implementing customized lease and rental programs for vendors of high technology and related equipment and is becoming a major financing source for second placements.  SILC also is a national major reseller of high-quality, off-lease used Sun and Cisco equipment through Redirect Tech, its remarketing subsidiary.


About King Capital Corp.


King Capital Corp., established in 1975 and based in Golden Valley, Minn., offers a wide range of leasing options to manufacturers, distributors and resellers through its primary subsidiary, SILC, as well as high-availability software through H.A. Technical Solutions, LLC.

             This Day in American History


    1619- The first Black slaves brought by the Dutch to the colony of Jamestown. The colonists desperately needed workers for the tobacco crop.  Europe was becoming “addicted “ to snuff and smoking tobacco in a pipe, inhaling. The Indians had introduced the colonies to tobacco, who were learning to grow and dry it. Europe was “mad” for the smoke and snuff for gentlemen. John Rolfe writes in his diary, “About the last of August came in a dutch man of warre that sold us twenty negars”

    1704- the first underground sewer in Boston was constructed by Francis Thrasher, at his own expense. The move led to municipal regulations governing disposal of refuse and garbage. By 1710, the selectmen of Boston were giving licenses to private citizens for digging up streets for sewer construction.  Now you may not think this is a big deal, but think how waste

was removed in this time, most often just thrown raw into the streets.

    1785- Oliver Hazard Perry, American naval hero, born at South Kingston, RI.  Best remembered is his announcement  of victory at the Battle of Lake Erie, September 10, 1824: “We have met the enemy, and they are ours.”

    1794 Major General “Mad” Anthony Wayne routs Indians at Fallen Timbers, Ohio

    1813-African-American Richard Allen chairs the first National Negro Convention in Philadelphia.

   1833- Benjamin Harrison, the 23rd president of the US, born at North Bend, Ohio.  He was the grandson of William Henry Harrison, 9th president of the US.  His term of office 1889-1893, was preceded and followed by the presidential terms of Grover Cleveland ( who became the 22nd and 24th president ).

   1845-Wilberforce University established in Ohio, 1856

    1866- the newly organized National Labor Union called on Congress to mandate an eight-hour workday.

    1867-Anson Mills, brevet lieutenant colonel in the Army, Fort Bridger, UT, was granted a patent for a new cartridge belt.  Moisture had previously affected cartridge belts.  Mills invented a woven cartridge belt, and the machinery for making it, which was adopted by both the army and Navy.

      1905 –Jazz Trombonist/singer Jack Teagarden Birthday

    1911- “This message sent around the world,” sent at 7pm from the New York Times

and received back at 7:16:30pm, traveling over 28,613 miles via 16 relay stations

to become the first telegraph message sent around the world.  It was the front

page headline and quite an event for its era.

     1912-After the Japanese beetle invaded the East Coast and other diseases were affecting agriculture, Congress passed a quarantine law for plants, directed against dangerous plant diseases and injurious insect pests “ new to or not theretofore widely prevalent or distributed within and through the United States.”  Plants that could transmit white-pin, blister rust or potato wart, and plants that might harbor the Mediterranean fruit fly, were immediately affected.  Other species before the turn of the century

had been affected, such as the “mighty American chestnut oak” that dominated the Northeast was basically extinct by this date.

    1920- the first radio station to be licensed was 8MK, owned by the Detroit News, which began later instituted daily service with the program, “ Tonight’s Dinner.” The call letters were changed later to WWJ.

    1924-Birthday of Jim Reeves, country music start, born at Galloway, Panola County, TX, and died at Nashville,TN, July 31,1964, when the single-engine plane in which he was traveling crashed in a dense fog. Reeve’s biggest hit was “He’ll Have to Go.” (1959) and he was inducted into he Country Music Hall of Fame in 1967.

Note from the editor:


Carl Moberg is a wireless provider of equipment, camera’s, broadcast, and other

equipment across the United States, who’s business has grown, and from the beginning maintained  offices and shipping facility here, originally trading it out for work on our internet server and mail server, plus providing other expertise. When Maria Martinez-Wong is out sick, or on vacation, as she is this week, he converts the text to html, posts it

to the website and sends to our HTML readers.  While he has much knowledge

on this, it no longer is his main work, but he is picking up speed.  He also

comes in at 9am, whereas Maria comes in at 7am just to post Leasing News.

Give him another day, and he will be quite up to speed.  Maria is back

on Monday, and I think Carl is looking forward to it.
