  • Our in-depth industry expertise dates back to the late 1970’s, when Louis Centolella II entered the equipment leasing and finance business.

  • Louis launched his own Syracuse based leasing and loan operation, which started to provide many of the leasing/loan industry services that ELS continues to provide today. Around that time, Louis’s oldest son, Louis Centolella III, started working at the company on a part-time basis while attending Lehigh University, learning all aspects of the business. As the younger Lou grew with the business, so did his industry knowledge and experience.

  • After Lou graduated from Lehigh with his Bachelor’s degree in finance, he spent the next five years at ADP, the Fortune 500 payroll and benefits management firm. Working in the South Florida region, Lou’s roles in sales as a District Manager and then as Major Account Manager gave him valuable experience in business and client account management.

  • By 2001, Lou decided to return to the company his father had founded, so he re-joined full-time as a sales representative for new accounts. He then progressed to managing the entire sales team, eventually heading up all operations. One of his first initiatives in the operations role was to update and reprogram the company’s enterprise systems, allowing the firm to become even more responsive with the services they were providing.

  • In 2010, with the untimely passing of his father, Lou became president and managing partner of the firm. He re-organized into separate business units, with Enterprise Lease Solutions and Computer Gallery as separate entities. These business units continued to provide the industry services they had been providing for over twenty years at that point, with the same continuing dedication to their customers.

  • Today, Lou, along with his brother Jason who is also his business partner and an attorney with extensive industry experience, continue to honor a strong commitment to clients, as their father did more than four decades ago when he first entered the industry. The experience and forward-looking perspective of the younger Centolella generation are what allow ELS to anticipate the changing industry. This gives the ELS team the tools they need, to continue serving ELS clients at the highest levels.
