Jonathan “Jon” Cayot

Partner – The Leasing Group

Jon has been an active participant of the Louisville, KY business scene for over 7 years. He is a respected expert in the equipment leasing/financing space having financed over $100M in capital projects throughout his career. His experiences range from working with large businesses with $1B+ in annual revenues and small “mom & pop” establishments with revenues less then $1 million. Jon is also an active investor in various start-up and real estate ventures with his wife. In his spare time, Jon is an avid golfer and cook. He is also a strong supporter of the local soccer team “Louisville City”. As a lifelong resident of Louisville, Jon was drawn toward the Portland Museum because of the unique heritage and stories it holds about the Portland neighborhood and its role in the history of Louisville.

“At the end of the day, if we want to be a better city, we can always copy the route of other cities with their cookie cutter developments and uninspiring business practices — or we can choose to recognize and celebrate what makes Louisville unique. In that process we build a great city to both live and visit. The Story of Portland is unique to Louisville and one that should be celebrated as a part of a greater Louisville community.  I’m honored with helping preserve that legacy”.
