In November 2016, Commercial Funding Partners (CFP) welcomed Brian Walker as the National Sales Manager. In this role, Walker will originate equipment lease transactions directly with customers as well as develop mutually beneficial relationships with professionals in all areas of commercial finance.
“I am thrilled to have brought Brian onto our team,” said Buddy Zarbock, Vice President of CFP. “His background and experience in corporate finance is some of the best I’ve seen in the industry. He has already proven to be a meaningful asset in the short amount of time that he’s been here.”
With over 10 years of experience and millions of dollars funded, Walker has worked on virtually every type of equipment finance transaction. He has helped fund deals from small, family-owned businesses with under $5MM in annual revenue, to large, Fortune 500 companies, with revenue well into the billions. Not only has Walker funded a wide array of transactions, but his customers come back to him time and time again with new deals. Having the freedom to work with all types and sizes of companies allows Walker to identify the right opportunities for CFP.
“I believe CFP is providing me with the latitude needed to do my job effectively,” said Walker. “The size of a company, as well as the size of a transaction, are less important compared to the value of the relationships we create — where they are mutually beneficial, we grow together. Having the freedom to work with all types and sizes of companies allows me to identify the right opportunities where we can be an effective partner.”
Walker has built a reputation for being highly effective when conveying the merits of a transaction to decision makers, underwriters and investors and has a thorough understanding of the process of documentation and funding. The ownership of CFP looks forward to Walker’s contribution, at all stages, to create meaningful relationships and get deals funded.
Walker has previously held positions of Sr. Account Executive and Intermediary Relations Manager. Prior to joining CFP, Brian worked at Mazuma Capital.
