What does your typical work day look like?
Right now I am still settling into a regular schedule. I am based in Atlanta, but I service clients all over the country. Relationship building comprises a great deal of my work so I am an avid user of LinkedIn.
How did you choose this career?
I was a principle owner of two large landscaping companies in the Atlanta area for 12 years. For eight of those years, I relied heavily on factoring. When making the decision to change careers, I knew I wanted to do something to help other business owners. Having benefited from factoring myself, I felt I was in a unique position to really understand what my clients needed. In fact, my first job in this field was with the company that provided factoring for me!
Why did you choose Hitachi?
I appreciate the consistent and logical decision-making practices of Hitachi Business Finance. I can be confident that I am providing the best opportunities for my customers.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
I have two sons, eight and 10 years old. I enjoy spending all the time with them that I can.
Fun fact about yourself
I love public speaking! I especially enjoy talking to local groups, educating them about our business and how it works.
What is your advice to small business owners?
You need a partner who understands your cash flow needs. Call me at (770) 880-9208 or email email@example.com and find out the questions you need to be asking any company when deciding where to go for financing.
