Byline Financial Group continues to make gains on the Monitor 100 as one of the top U.S. equipment finance companies thanks to its fast-growing equipment finance division. Byline Financial Group’s year-over-year total assets grew by 46% in 2022, landing Byline Financial Group at No. 80 of this year’s Monitor 100 list, moving up from No. 84 on last year’s list.

In the past year, Byline Financial Group grew its assets to $523.6 million in 2022 from $357.8 million in 2021. New business volume jumped from $249 million in 2021 to $324.7 million in 2022. Lyndon Thompson, president at Byline Financial Group, credits this success to the ability of his team to make decisions quickly—even in a volatile interest rate environment—and then convert those approved transactions into funded deals.

“It has been an incredible journey expanding established national operations in all 50 states, helping more customers access the capital they need, which can be credited to the efforts from our hardworking team,” Thompson said. “We have been very successful working with manufacturers, dealers and end-user customers that require access to reliable, quick funding, and we are proud to be a partner in their continued success.”

Byline Financial Group, a wholly owned subsidiary of Byline Bank, is a full-service national commercial financing business servicing all aspects of the transaction, from inception to termination, under one roof in Bannockburn, IL. Alongside Thompson, Amy Fisher, Dale Kiser, Brian Wunsch, Robert Condon, Sue Herndon and Steve Ginsberg lead the group, making quick informed decisions, acting on trends swiftly and remaining focused on exceptional service paired with speed.
