Liberty Commercial Finance added Heather Wilkens to its lease administration team as vice president of Documentation and Funding. Wilkens joins fellow GE Capital alums Jen Bradford and Kirk Nelson to form an experienced, cohesive back office to help drive the company’s continued growth.
Wilkens started her nearly two decade-long career in the equipment lease and finance industry with an independent equipment lessor in Southern California. She then joined GE Capital in 2006, where she spent 13 years in various operations roles.
