Liberty Capital Group Shows Continued Growth with Key Hires

April 15, 2019, 07:10 AM

As Liberty Capital Group continues to grow, to maintain its commitment to client service through a consultative approach, additional funding advisors have been hired. In 2019 alone, new hires have seen a 120 percent increase in its Business Funding Advisor team, including the recent addition of a Certified Leasing and Finance Professional to improve exposure to the much-needed equipment financing and leasing department.

Joining Liberty Capital Group in February 2019, Kris Dragoo has taken up a position as Senior Credit Analyst. Here, she will help grow and manage the operations department. Previously, she was working as Sr. Credit Analyst for Partners Capital Group and Balboa Capital, and she has been in the Leasing and finance industry for more than 18 years, the journey taking her from Utah to California. In 2018, Dragoo obtained her CLFP certification and had proven her commitment to the industry. She has a bachelor’s degree in Marketing from Utah State University and an associate degree in Business from Dixie State University.

In addition to recruits, restructuring within the existing team is aimed at fully exploiting the talent the organization has at its disposal while ensuring client service standards are maintained. To fulfill this goal, Rosa Douglas has been promoted to Vice President of Credit and Funding. Douglas manages the facilitation of business-to-business final underwriting and funding. She joined Liberty Capital Group in June 2012 as a credit analyst assistant.

Liberty Capital Group also has hired a new team leader to accommodate new trainees and implemented a new training approach to improve knowledge-based underwriting funding requests. This is part of the ongoing strategy in place to ensure that growth does not negatively affect performance or the service standards.

Liberty Capital Group, Inc., which has its headquarters in San Diego, CA, also announced it has passed a new milestone for fund provision since entering the market. Liberty Capital has been successfully brokering small business loans since November 2010, and the level of small business loans, advances and equipment financing delivered to small businesses across the country has now passed $150 million. The capital to achieve that milestone is provided by a combination of direct funding, syndication and through a network of lenders across the nation.

“That $150 million figure is not just a milestone for us as a business,” said Adrian Dalsey, Liberty Capital Group’s CEO. “Every cent of that is also a milestone for our clients, represented a chance for growth, helping small businesses across this country achieve their goals. That means more jobs, more success and a brighter future for those companies. We are very proud of being part of that.”

Liberty Capital Group, Inc. is a financial brokerage firm that provides capital funding solutions to small businesses. The company was founded in November 2004 by Dalsey and initially focused exclusively on commercial trucks and construction equipment leasing. During the financial crisis of 2007 to 2008, lenders began to tighten their lending standards, and many small businesses in need of working capital were soon declared too risky for a loan. Dalsey noticed this trend in the industry and has since repositioned his business to focus on brokering loans to these small businesses.

The company marks its 15th year in business in 2019.
