About Us

Our Story

Sometimes a discussion among like minds leads to a great idea. Sometimes that idea leads to a framework for a business plan. The Juno path began with that discussion, which led to an idea, which led to bringing together some of the best people in the industry to start the Juno team. As the idea evolved during the Covid-19 pandemic, the considerations of environmental, social, and governance factors for the future became the pillars for Juno.

At the same time, the founders wanted the business to have an appropriate name that reflected our proud Canadian background and respect for Canadian History.

It was a Henderson family trip to the Normandy coast, and the visits to the forever fateful D-Day beaches that inspired Chris to respectfully choose the name Juno Financial.  That visit reinforced a tremendous sense of pride in the contributions Canada made, not only on D-Day, but throughout its history of minimizing the impact of world conflict.   Juno Financial is named after Juno Beach, a historic success for the Allies and all Canadians.  Juno is proud to be a Canadian company, and proud to carry such a historic Canadian name as they help you get to the next level.

Robert Simone, MBA

Senior Vice President Originations

Rob is a founding partner in Juno and has a very long and diverse list of success in the lease and finance industry in Canada and the US. He is an experienced sales executive that always leads with a thorough and knowledgeable approach with each strategic relationship. Rob can add significant value to customers and vendors with financial solutions based on his experience with large US lenders participating in the Canadian marketplace. Rob and Chris worked together in the 90’s during the technology boom, which allowed him to navigate through both a very high growth environment, as well as the subsequent slowdown and credit crisis in 2008. Since that time Rob has been focused on building long term relationships with both lenders and end use customers. He benefits customers by bringing his acute credit risk knowledge to the front of the transaction process, which results in a very high success rate for matching customer requirements with internal risk management guidelines. Juno is an opportunity for Rob to build an origination team that aligns his passion for exceeding customer expectations with the vision of Juno.
