By Joyce Dimaculangan

BMO Harris Equipment Finance Co., a wholly owned subsidiary of Chicago-based BMO Harris Bank NA, is proud to announce that it has expanded its business into Iowa, Nebraska, and South Dakota. This development complements its existing commercial operations in Omaha and increases BMO’s capability to reach equipment finance officers in four key states.

Brad Hansen, Senior Vice President, BMO Harris Equipment, will lead the four-state BMO Harris Equipment Financefinance team. Hansen has extensive experience in agribusiness, aviation, large corporate, rail, marine, manufacturing and general transportation and finance transactions. In a statement, Jud Snyder, Managing Director and Head, BMO Harris Equipment Finance said, “Business leaders are looking to their financial services providers for an optimal balance of local market knowledge, expertise and capabilities, which is exactly what Brad brings to market.” With this expansion, BMO will be able to provide customers with customized financing alternatives, access to capital and specialized expertise.

The move comes after the company opened its first commercial banking operation in Omaha in 2012 which was led by Kevin Munro. Munro’s team concentrated on mid-market and mid-corporate companies in Colorado, the Dakotas, Iowa, and Nebraska.

Hansen will divide his time between the company’s offices in Milwaukee and Omaha.
