Meet the Team

David Coons

We are excited to introduce you to our newest colleague, David Coons. David recently joined the Atalaya Leasing team as Head of Sales. Based in Dallas, David brings more than 30 years of experience in equipment leasing and sales to the Atalaya Leasing team, including extensive experience in executive management, business development and sales team management. 

Hometown? Hudson, Ohio

Alma Mater? Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, New York and University of Texas

How did you get into the equipment leasing business? I started in a rotational training program with Seafirst Leasing (part of Seattle First National Bank, which was subsequently bought by Bank of America) right after receiving an MBA at the University of Texas. I spent time in credit underwriting, legal, operations, and sales, which gave me the opportunity to understand all parts of the equipment leasing industry. Following the program, I began covering sales throughout the Southwest portion of the U.S. from the Dallas office. I have been in the leasing business ever since.

What are you most looking forward to about joining Atalaya Leasing? I am looking forward to working for a non-bank equipment finance company that can offer creative solutions to a wide range of companies and industries.

What do you enjoy doing outside of work?  I am an avid golfer and home remodeler. My wife and I have bought and sold 11 homes in the past 18 years, primarily in San Diego, California where we lived for many years.

What is your favorite vacation destination?  My favorite vacation destination is the Riviera Maya in Mexico. It has a great combination of beaches, Mayan culture, and mangrove jungles with exotic wildlife.
