Inside GreatAmerica

Empowered Teams

The scalability of the team structure also preserved the intimate, small-company feel as GreatAmerica expanded. Teams of empowered individuals rising to their potential and making informed decisions continue to benefit the company and its customers today. Everyone at GreatAmerica participates in a bonus structure that integrates personal and company goals that help grow GreatAmerica and reward individual team member accomplishments.

Preferred Place to Work

GreatAmerica continues as an employer of choice in Eastern Iowa. Most recently recognized by the Monitor as one of the Best Companies in Equipment Finance, specifically for Best Company Culture. 

Team members have a great degree of autonomy in creating their own personal fulfillment. They are encouraged to demonstrate special interests, experience, or skills that help advance GreatAmerica goals and objectives. This, in turn, fuels our high retention rates and internal satisfaction levels that translate directly into a positive and consistent customer experience.

An Architecture of Participation

GreatAmerica is organized into eight segments: Office Equipment, Connected Technology, Automotive Service and Repair, HealthCare, Direct Programs, Construction and Survey, GreatAmerica Portfolio Services Group LLC, and Collabrance LLC. Each unit immerses itself into its respective market and taps into the complex dynamics that go into making a business successful. Our expertise is gained through internal training, dealer councils, industry events, and intense research in the industry each business unit serves. These activities inform all levels of the company and create a fertile environment that fosters innovative problem-solving.

Change and Innovation

Knowledge is not a static concept at GreatAmerica, and creating a fluid environment begins with an easy flow of communication among team members and company leadership. Facilitated by an open floor plan with no walls, this communication is vital to identifying opportunities and bringing meaningful change to the markets we serve. This change comes in the form of innovative programs, tools, and solutions for our customers.

Empowerment, cross-training and the culture of innovation are critical to the continued success of GreatAmerica. Indeed, the sharing of team roles creates a feedback loop essential to the smooth and consistent delivery of our services.

Community Giving


GreatAmerica is committed to building a strong community, supporting sustainable activities, and promoting good will.

The GreatAmerica Donor Advised Fund was established in 2001. Recently, the GreatAmerica Employee Advised Fund was added to double our annual charitable giving. The funds are expected to provide more than $1 million to projects in the Cedar Rapids and Iowa City Corridor community each year.
