This month we feature Hollis Bufferd, Chief of Staff for GSG Financial since 2005. GSG Financial partners with organizations to facilitate capital acquisitions through personalized service and customized financial solutions. They are mainly focused on equipment financing. Their CEO, Andrew Bender, is a member of the Vistage NYC CEO peer group. Each month they both get to hear the same expert speaker give a workshop sharing best practices and thought leadership in separate meetings. This gives them the opportunity to discuss new ideas and actions to take together to optimize their business.
Hollis was the first senior manager hired by GSG Financial in 2005. Over the past 11 years, she has contributed greatly to growing the organization as well as managing day to day operations to ensure the stability and development of GSG Financial. She is manages with a hands on approach and willingness to get involved in all areas of the business. Her drive and multidimensional capabilities make her an ideal member for the Vistage NYC Key Executive group.
When asked about her decision to join Vistage, she replied,
“I decided to join Vistage because one of the major challenges I was facing was not having other managers in my organization to troubleshoot and use as a sounding board. Vistage provides me with an opportunity to interact with other executives, get advice, and learn something from the speakers. I think I benefit the most from a having a peer group to go to for advice in a trusted setting. I have been a member for about 8 months and I believe that I have become a better manager as a result.”
