LEO N. DePAOLA, ASAI have known Lez McKenzie for over 25 years. We attended the same college; we then worked together for several years at GE Capital. We remained friends, as well as, professional colleagues ever since. Lez has always provided professional and valued expertise and knowledge. Over the years I used the services of Lez for valuations, remarketing and industry knowledge. He also spent the extra time to make me aware of any pitfalls and market changes. He provides additional information to help with future implications and trends that may have an effect on equipment values.
In one instance, when I had a medical imaging CT scanner that was less than perfect, he found a way to market and resell this scanner for a price that was higher than expected. He also helped the customer with arranging the shipping of this device. Over the years, Lez has been a person I could rely upon for accurate and trustworthy information.
I would recommend Lez for a job or a career opportunity that he was pursuing, knowing that he would never tarnish my reputation.

Jonathon H. YawitzTo Whom It May Concern,
I have known Mr. Lez McKenzie for roughly five (5) years. Our paths crossed as business colleagues in the healthcare field; I, a Healthcare Asset Manager, and Lez, a highly experienced industry resource, equipment remarketer and a licensed ASA accredited appraiser.
I have had the opportunity to meet with Lez on multiple occasions in both relaxed, social environments as well as those that require the utmost of professionalism. He knows when to be ‘low key’ and when to be professionally passionate.
Lez has a great depth of knowledge of the healthcare industry; state of the market, original equipment manufacturers and product families, technology trends and obsolescence, etc…
In my time of knowing Lez, he has always treated me with respect, responded in a very expeditious manner, exhibited a professional sense of urgency and shown great passion towards his own work and that of helping others accomplish theirs.
Over the past number of years, I have offered my professional recommendation of Mr. McKenzie’s knowledge and skill set to numerous business contacts of mine. I would only do such a thing if I confidently felt that my recommendation was sound.
It has been my pleasure to offer these words and insight into the character of Mr. Lez McKenzie. Sincerely,
Healthcare Asset Manager,
