Global Capital, Ltd., a Chicago-based asset management and leasing company, celebrates 20 years of service to Fortune 2000 companies and mid-sized organizations this month. Founded by President Terri McNally in November 2009, Global Capital focuses on securing favorable equipment financing to help companies operate and grow cost effectively.
In recognition of the company’s anniversary and to share its success, Ms. McNally is making donations to Women for Wounded Warriors and ACS ResearcHERS, organizations that support wounded veterans and women with cancer.
Since its founding, Global Capital has obtained more than $1 billion dollars of equipment financing. According to Ms. McNally, the firm’s achievement is directly related to its business approach and relationship style.
“Our customers trust us to go the extra mile, which is one of the reasons our business is so satisfying,” Ms. McNally said.
Case in point, during the last few years at one of the largest health care companies in the world, the Global Capital team helped secure significant financing for forklifts and revamped the company’s leased equipment strategy immediately saving more than $2 million. The deal also earned Global Capital the role of acting lead for all new equipment financing efforts. In total, the project is expected to save more than $12 million over the next five years.
“Terri is a wonderful a role model for female entrepreneurs,” said Pamela Prince-Eason, president and CEO of Women’s Business Enterprises National Council (WBENC), the largest third-party certifier of businesses owned, controlled, and operated by women in the U.S. “We honored her as a Woman of Distinction in 2017 for the legacy she’s created in a traditionally male-dominated industry. Congratulations to Global Capital and to the next 20 years!”
“Teamwork,” said Ms. McNally, “is the key. Since day one, we celebrated personal and professional accomplishments and reframed our challenges together. We all value relationships and thrive in collaborative environments. As a result, we stand at this threshold because of a web of relationships with our customers that we nurture and leverage. We are grateful for the opportunity to continue to do good work with and for them.”
“I met Terri McNally at a Supplier Diversity event and quickly knew Global Capital was capable of doing much more than the current scope. She understood my mission to revamp how we leased equipment and the dedication from both Terri and Brian made me quickly feel like I was part of the family too. They provided support from start to finish and continue to now lead financing our new equipment. We saved over $2 Million by switching to Global Capital and projected over $12 million more over the next 5 years. Thank you all for the big win!”
“Congratulations to Global Capital Ltd and to its wonderful President Terri McNally on the 20th Anniversary and years of success. Terri has been a valued and active member of WBENC since 1999 serving on the Board of Directors and now serves as a role model for entrepreneurs as a WBENC Woman of Distinction. Her involvement and relationships with WBENC helped grow her company substantially these past 20 years. The WBENC family is large but close and still intimate enough to create long lasting relationships! Congratulations Terri and GCL.
‘Here’s to the next 20 years!’”
