Computer Sales International Changes Name to CSI Leasing, Inc.1 May 2005
New Name Defines Company’s Area of Expertise
ST. LOUIS (1 May 2005) – Computer Sales International, one of the largest independent IT leasing companies in the world, has changed its name to CSI Leasing, Inc., effective immediately.
CSI Leasing completed the name change to develop a more consistent brand that clearly identifies the company’s area of expertise. When the company was founded in 1972, it focused on buying and selling computers. As the leasing industry matured, CSI began to focus entirely on leasing IT equipment.
Last year, CSI Leasing generated more than $171 million in revenue and the company currently owns more than $800 million in leased assets. The privately held company’s business structure and management team, which has been in place since the company’s inception more than 30 years ago, will remain the same.
“The reason for the name change is simple – we want our customers and potential customers to have a better understanding of our business,” said Ken Steinback, chairman and CEO of CSI Leasing. “We help our customers implement flexible leasing programs that reduce the costs, risks and hassles of owning technology equipment.”
