At PacLease, It Takes a Team

August 30, 2021

Bo Schembechler said it best in his legendary “The Team” speech back in 1983, “No man is more important than the Team.” This holds true today in our world of sales.

We have a saying at PacLease, and it’s pretty straightforward: “We’re focused on improving your service to your customer.” If we do that, we know we’re doing our job.
