A Message from Our President

Cat Financial is committed to transforming lives in the communities where we live and work. We champion programs in Nashville and Middle Tennessee in the areas of arts, civic, education, and health and human services.

Our mission is to support and serve the organizations that help build a better tomorrow. Every day, we deliver sustainable solutions for our customers, enabling them to succeed and drive positive change around the world. We believe it is also our responsibility to drive positive change by investing purposefully to improve the lives of people in our community through volunteerism, education and financial support.

Cat Financial is proud to support individual employee and retiree efforts to engage within their community. To achieve this, we offer a matching gifts program and volunteer hour tracking.

I am proud of all we have accomplished in the Nashville area since we opened our doors in 1991. By investing in our people and communities, Cat Financial is dedicated to building a bright future for generations to come.

Dave Walton
President and CEO, Caterpillar Financial Services Corporation
