Your Stellar Success Made Possible by…

AstraLease President Don Bertsch began his leasing career in 1969 with Dealers Leasing Corp. in Westbury, New York…as a driver. Over 20 years, he rose through the ranks to become a salesperson, then sales manager, then vice president of sales!

In 1990, Bertsch teamed up with partner Joe Roach, who was serving as controller for Fortune 500 company McKesson Corporation, to found AstraLease Associates. They quickly added two more partners, Michael Brannigan and Robert Morgenstern. Today, the four continue to smoothly manage all aspects of AstraLease, including 12 full-time employees, many of whom have been with the company for over 10 years.

What defines an AstraLease super-star performer?

“Someone who is committed to doing the right thing for both the customer and AstraLease,” says Bertsch. “They have to be committed to customer satisfaction, looking to do not just one lease with the customer, but many over the years to come.”
