The CFLA is deeply saddened to learn that Geoff Seely, Vice President & General Manager of Holman Canada, passed away on Wednesday, December 21, 2022. Seely’s career in Canada’s asset-based finance and leasing industry spanned decades, and he has served on the CFLA’s Board of Directors since 2018

“Geoff uplifted everyone around him. You could see the reassurance and kindness he provided to those that spoke with him,” said Michael Rothe, CFLA President & CEO. “We’ve lost a genuinely kind and caring leader, and I know the industry will feel the sadness we all feel here at the CFLA. On behalf of the Association and the industry, I ask that you keep Geoff’s loved ones in mind and join me in remembering the countless good memories Geoff brought into each of our lives.”

Seely has always been an active industry advocate and volunteered much of his time serving on the CFLA’s Board of Directors and Executive Committee. His dedication and leadership have helped the asset-based finance and leasing industry thrive over the years. 

Seely’s friends and family celebrated his life during memorial services at the end of December in Burlington, Ontario. You can make memorial contributions to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada ⇒ in Geoff’s honour and express your condolences and memories online here ⇒.
