Leaders of Influence: Lenders

   

Custom Content from the Los Angeles Business Journal
Regardless of the current economic conditions or whether or not we are all navigating through a national pandemic, for business owners, one of the most important steps toward growth is access to capital.

As new businesses open, and as existing businesses look to take the next step, market share becomes the shared target. For those businesses who have successfully navigated their first four quarters or more, staying profitable can still be a challenge without a constant push to innovate and adapt.

Being the hotbed for creative and innovation-driven new businesses that Los Angeles is, it’s no surprise that many of the country’s foremost lending professionals live and work here. From an influx of nominations and suggestions, the Los Angeles Business Journal staff has selected some of the very best of them to be featured in this special Leaders of Influence supplement. We hope you read with interest the profiles of these outstanding financial stewards, along with some basic information about their careers, practice and some relevant recent projects they’ve been involved with.
