Linda Redding, Head of Equipment Finance, J.P. Morgan Commercial Banking

Since joining J.P. Morgan Commercial Banking as head of equipment finance, Linda Redding has been engaged in a listening tour to learn more about how the equipment finance business fits within the

firm overall and how it can utilize the company’s unique scale and capabilities. Redding focuses on leveraging the critical elements of a successful equipment finance practice — people, process and partnership — to build out the firm’s equipment finance platform and provide innovative, thoughtful solutions to even more of its client base, which already has others at the firm taking notice.

Redding joined J.P. Morgan earlier this year after nearly 27 years at Wells Fargo, bringing a background in both equipment finance sales and credit leadership. Her knowledge and past roles have also provided her invaluable experience in leading transformational change focused on developing and implementing practical, client-centric solutions.

“Linda brings a very deep knowledge of the equipment finance industry and an end-toend, client-centric focus, enabling her team to help businesses of all sizes and industries achieve their financing objectives,” Mac Fowle, head of capital finance solutions for J.P. Morgan Commercial Banking, says. “In just over six months with J.P. Morgan, she has done an incredible job of building on our strong foundation of best-in-class solutions and scaling them to meet the needs of clients across the firm.”

In addition to her work improving J.P Morgan’s equipment finance offerings, a hallmark of Redding’s career has been her dedication to diversity, equity and inclusion. Redding is especially proud of developing and leading the Women’s Initiative for the Corporate and Investment Bank at Wachovia Bank prior to its sale to Wells Fargo. While there, she worked closely with executive leaders to develop engagement events, speaker series and mentorship programs aimed at improving the recruiting, retention and development of women throughout the firm. Redding’s dedication to DE&I extends to her work at her alma mater, Converse University in Spartanburg, SC, where she serves on the board of trustees. Converse recently decided to transition from a women’s college to a co-ed institution, providing the opportunity for Redding to help develop a new vision for the university focused on the needs of today’s diverse student body. She is honored to play a role in ensuring that Converse provides the same support and development she received as a student to future graduates.

Throughout her career, Redding has remained steadfast in her mission of providing thoughtful, transformational leadership to businesses to help them achieve their potential in a rapidly changing business landscape. She consistently conveys to her teams the importance of leading from the front every day. She says this means not only developing a long-term vision that the team can rally behind, but also working with stakeholders to identify the critical milestones and the many details needed to bring a vision to life.

“The road less traveled is a great road if you are open to where it takes you,” Redding says. “I am so grateful for all the experiences I have had along the way. Having the courage to carve your own path will pay off in the end.”
