San Diego Mag Awards Equipment Firm President

Sat October 14, 2006 - West Edition

San Diego-based equipment leasing firm Five Point Capital announced that President Dan Feder was recognized as one of San Diego’s “40 Under 40” highest-achieving business and civic leaders.

Alex Shekhter, president of Foundation Capital Group Inc., nominated Feder for his entrepreneurial vision and community service.

Feder, along with 39 other young executives, was recognized by the San Diego Metropolitan magazine at the Seventh Annual 40 Under 40 awards banquet on Sept. 19. More than 500 attended the luncheon at the San Diego Convention Center.

“It was our independent judges who made the hard cuts to get down to 40. Our region’s fate lies in these leaders’ hands. We were amazed with the variety and the talents of the class of 2006,” stated Editor Tim McClain.

Five Point Capital honored its president and business community by serving as a bronze sponsor for the event.

A portion of the proceeds benefited the YWCA and its programs, including Becky’s House for battered women and their children.

Feder reflected, “I share this honor with my co-founder, Dave Gilbert, and all of the Five Point Capital team. Without their passion and drive to create amazing results, I may not have met the criteria of this impressive award. Thank you all.”

Five Point Capital (FPC) was founded by Feder and Gilbert in 1999 under the principle that “leasing can help any company grow.” Five Point Capital ranked No. 82 on the just-released 2006 Inc. 500.
