He founded his own fleet Leasing company, NFC, Inc., in the late 1980s and later sold it to GE Capital in 1992. Bill spent 20 years at GE Capital and Donlen, prior to joining Merchants.
Jon Keller, director of East Region Sales, has more than 16 years of fleet management and sales experience, and will manage a team of seven Merchants Regional Sales managers. Keller, based in Richmond, Va, is an alumnus of The Ohio State University and, with his wife Hilary, have two children. Jon joined Merchants from his former position at MasterCard International where he helped manage the company's key relationship with Capital One. He began his fleet management career with PHH in the early 1990s and moved on to successively more important sales and management positions over the following years at GE Capital and Donlen.
Both Lott and Keller will report to Tom Coffey, VP Sales and Marketing.
