In 1987, the name changed to form Fox Valley Leasing, which merged with Harbor Leasing to become Madison Capital in August of 1997. Since stepping down, Allan continues as a partner selling, reading credit, mentoring, and supporting all aspects of the business as it continues to grow; and, is always looking for the next transaction.

He has served on The Equipment Leasing and Finance Association’s Committee for Independent Leasing Companies (ILC) and its Future Council group. He was VP of his local Jewish Community Center and on its board of directors for many years and is past chair of The Gordon Center (a 550-seat boutique venue for the performing arts).
