US Bancorp Manifest--It's Official
Last week Leasing News reported the "shrinking" of the broker division, with many going into the vendor division, and perhaps US Bancorp only keeping the top brokers, meaning millions of dollar per year. Since the days of Schwann, Manifest has been one of the top companies inviting new brokers to their office in Marshall, Minnesota to learn the leasing business, developing new brokers, writing insurance manifesto's of broker protection, and extremely active in the leasing associations to attract all leasing brokers. Leasing News reported it changed, but could not get any official notification, only information indirectly.
Here is an email to a broker who has been working with Manifest since 1987. His name is not included, and the sender of the email has been "X'd" out. But it is the first official word of the major change:
“I know most of you know this already but I haven't been able to get in touch with everyone so I wanted to send this out...
“I wanted to let all of you know that in all of the changes over here at US Bank Manifest, that I have been laid off in this process. My last day with the company will be August 31. In the meantime, I will be here to help you with your backlog, funding source references or any other things that I can help with.
“You still have the ability to send new deals in up through July 30th. I would appreciate any deals you can send me while I'm still here as it would really help me out in this time of transition, but definitely understand if you need to send deals elsewhere.
“Also, please let me know if you need anything rechecked in late July as you will still have 60 days from the approval date to fund deals with us, so potentially you could have a deal that is approved in late July and funds in Sept.
“I will truly miss working with all of you and will miss the business & personal relationships that we have had. I wish you all the best and please contact me if there is anything I can do for you before I am done.

New Advance Scoring System for Fin Pac
ATLANTA---Financial Pacific Leasing (FinPac) recently implemented new, custom scorecards and decision processes on Scoring Solutions’ Score360 system.
“For almost a year, we have worked diligently to incorporate robust, public commercial credit data on small businesses into our custom scorecard,” said Paul Menzel, CLP, FinPac CEO.
“Loss experience during the down cycle has provided valuable insight into lessee performance during a period of high economic stress. This allowed us to identify credit attributes that best predict performance of our unique customers. The resulting scorecard will approve more applications with improved efficiency and within acceptable risk parameters.” In conjunction with the new scorecard, FinPac has also widened its risk-based pricing range to include higher quality lessees.
“Implementing powerful new scorecards that access more predictive data sources and provide better risk measurement is critical to making improved business decisions in a weak economy,” explained Steve Darsie, principal of Scoring Solutions. “Score360 allows creditors to implement new scorecards within one or two months of scorecard completion while providing powerful decisioning capabilities. Implementation speed is critical to drive performance and profitability.”
Scoring Solutions partnered with GDS Link to implement Score360 which includes more than 1,000 tri-bureau credit bureau attributes and easy access to commercial credit bureaus and other data sources.

Special Patriotic Edition Part 2
For this 4th of July weekend, check out these patriotic classics from Netflix and create your own cinematic fireworks.
Yankee Doodle Dandy (Michael Curtiz, 1942): Who would have thought that it would take a foreign filmmaker to come up with the most patriotic of American movies? Austria-born director Michael Curtiz (“Casablanca,” “The Adventures of Robin hood”) pulled out all the stops in this irresistible celebration of America’s greatest features, from apple pie to the freedom of putting on a show. James Cagney won a well-deserved Best Actor Oscar for his portrayal of flag-waving composer and song-and-dance man George M. Cohan, who over the years went from child star at vaudeville shows to the country’s most beloved entertainer. Full of vintage tunes (“Yankee Doodle Dandy,” “You’re a Grand Old Flag,” “The Red, White and Blue”) and Cagney’s electrifying numbers, it’s the perfect Fourth of July movie.
Saving Private Ryan (Steven Spielberg, 1998): There are countless fine American movies dealing with courage during wartime, but to many modern viewers this modern classic from Steven Spielberg may stand at the very top of the list. Kicking off with an unforgettable vision of the bloodshed and sacrifice of the D-Day landing near the end of World War II, it depicts the odyssey of a group of soldiers, led by Capt. John Miller (Tom Hanks), as they venture into enemy territory in a dangerous mission: To rescue Private Ryan (Matt Damon), a paratrooper whose brothers were killed in action. With masterly camerawork and often overpowering emotions, Spielberg offers an indelible portrayal of bravery in the face of horror that’s both inspiring and haunting.
Hail the Conquering Hero (Preston Sturges, 1944): For some 4th of July laughs, you can’t go wrong with a comedy from the legendary Preston Sturges. This classic tells the rib-tickling tale of Woodrow (Eddie Bracken), a soldier who, at the height of World War II, gets discharged due to a bout of hayfever. Ashamed to go back to his hometown, he runs into a group of Marines led by gruff Sgt. Heppelfinger (William Demarest), who come up with a war story so Woodrow can retain his dignity. When the entire town welcomes him as a hero and even the Mayor offers him a new position, however, the charade becomes increasingly hard to keep up. A wonderful reminder that humor is as much a staple of a great nation as courage.
The Best Years of Our Lives (William Wyler, 1946): With WWII over, Hollywood felt the need to turn its sights back home to reassure the civilians the as well as the returning veterans. This Oscar-winning drama looks with great skill and sensitivity at the re-adjustment of a trio of military men as they reenter society. Al (Fredric March) has a devoted wife (Myrna Loy) and a good business, but finds the economic climate at odds with recognition of his fellow war vets’ efforts. Fred (Dana Andrews) struggles to deal with a rocky marriage and battlefield memories, while Homer (real-life paratrooper Harold Russell) faces emotional and physical challenges. William Wyler directs a superb cast in this stirring portrait of a nation’s postwar pain and healing.
Independence Day (Roland Emmerich, 1996): The U.S.A. takes to the interplanetary frontlines when aliens try to invade Earth. Director Roland Emmerich steals from just about every other science-fiction movie ever made, from “Earth vs. the Flying Saucers” to “Close Encounters of the Third Kind,” but succeeds in entertaining audiences thanks to an enthusiastic cast (including Will Smith and Jeff Goldblum). And what patriot could resist when, facing down the hordes of slimy creatures heading toward the planet, the American President (Bill Pullman) grabs the mike and delivers a speech that ends with: “We will not vanish without a fight! We're going to live on! We're going to survive! Today we celebrate our Independence Day!”

Today in History
1988- Michael Jackson became the first artist to have five number one singles from one album when "Dirty Diana" went to the top of the Billboard Hot 100. The other four chart-toppers from "Bad" were "I Just Can't Stop Loving You," "Bad," "The Way You Make Me Feel" and "Man in the Mirror."
This Day in American History
1776- the Continental Congress, Philadelphia, PA, having a quorum, voted to adopt a resolution introduced June 7, 1776, by Richard Henry Lee of Virginia: “Resolved, That these United Colonies are, and of right ought to be, free and independent States, that they are absolved from all allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain is, and ought to be, totally dissolved. That it is expedient forthwith to take the most effectual measures for forming foreign Alliances. That a plan of confederation be prepared and transmitted to the respective Colonies for their consideration and approbation.” This resolution prepared the way for signature and adoption, July 4,1776, of the Declaration of Independence.
