U. S. Bancorp Manifest Funding Services has named Brad Peterson as Senior Vice President and General Manager.  Mike Rizzo, President and CEO of Business Equipment Finance Group (formerly Lyon Financial Services) made the following announcement to employees on Monday, March 22nd. 

I am pleased to announce that Brad Peterson has accepted the position of Senior Vice President and General Manager of Manifest.  Brad joined Manifest in 1996 as a Regional Sales Manager for the South Central Region.  In 1998, he was promoted to his current position as Director of Sales for the West.

Brad graduated from Iowa State University in 1981 with a BS Degrees in Finance and Economics.  He began his business career with Ralston Purina in Nashville, TN.  During his early career with Purina, he held several management positions including Data Manager, Plant Controller, Manager of Dealer Distribution (financial project leader for sales and top dealers) and Manager of Financial Services (credit operations). 

In 1988, Brad was promoted to Area Controller for the Mid-Atlantic Area, the largest of 16 areas in the company.  In that role, he was responsible for the financial management of five manufacturing plants, five distribution warehouses, three sales divisions and two subsidiaries.  In addition to overseeing the accounting and auditing functions, Brad analyzed and approved all sales, distribution and marketing investments in the area. 

In 1991, Brad accepted a District Sales Manager position in Marshall, MN.  He and Mary decided to move their young family from Charlotte, NC back to the Midwest and the comfort of great schools and a safe community.  As a District Sales Manager, Brad won General Sales Advisory Board honors (top 25% out of 400+ sales people) each of the four years he was eligible.

Since joining Manifest in 1996, Brad has provided vision and leadership to the sales effort. 

Please join me in congratulating Brad as he accepts the position of Senior Vice President and General Manager of Manifest.  I am confident that he will make an excellent addition to our senior management team and I look forward to working with him closely.
