National Funding Named One of San Diego’s 2013 Fastest Growing Companies

National Funding, financial services company specializing in serving small businesses nationwide, is pleased to announce it ranked 89 on the San Diego Business Journal’s 100 Fastest Growing Private Companies list for 2013.

National Funding was recognized by the San Diego Business Journal as one of San Diego County’s 100 fastest growing companies based on its percentage increase in revenue between fiscal years 2010 and 2012. With a reported 52 percent growth, National Funding ranked 89. To be considered for the prestigious listing, companies needed to be privately held, based in San Diego County and have generated revenues in excess of $200,000 in 2010. The data sources were: the companies, CPA attestation letters, and San Diego Business Journal list files.

According to the Business Journal, San Diego’s growth businesses ran the gamut of industries including software applications and design, defense contracting and home services. The top companies represent a cross-section of the region’s diverse economic community.

National Funding attended the San Diego Business Journal’s awards presentation at the Paradise Point Resort & Spa in San Diego on July 11. The private reception included attendees from all of the fastest growing 100 companies. San Diego Business Journal Vice President and Associate Publisher, Bob Baranski, and Executive Editor, Reo Carr, announced and recognized the top 100 companies. National Funding executives in attendance were: David Gilbert, CEO; Tom Brainerd, VP of Marketing; Bob Sweeney, CFO; Justin Thompson, VP Sales; Bob Anthony, Working Capital Sales Manager; Ryan Freitas, Leasing Sales Manager; Nikki Rojas, Operations Manager, Sandra Otero, Portfolio Manager and Cindi Helsel, Human Resources Director.

National Funding serves the small business community nationwide by offering a range of financial services and products. The company is a leader in working capital loans and equipment leasing. It works with businesses in hundreds of communities and industries to provide working capital for day-to-day operations, and leasing to expand, replace and upgrade their business equipment. Every customer is matched with a National Funding account manager who has specific knowledge about their specific industry. Customers are able to get working capital, merchant cash advances, credit card processing, and equipment leasing.

“Being recognized as one of the San Diego region’s top 100 fastest growing companies is both an honor and distinction,” said CEO David Gilbert. “We’ve continued to grow exponentially because, in the current economy, it’s nearly impossible for many small businesses to get the working capital or funding for new equipment that they need from banks and other traditional lenders. We’ve focused on providing small businesses with unique and varied financing opportunities.”
