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.
“Adding Heather to the team has been an enormous boost to our documentation and funding process.” said Eric Freeman, Liberty founder and president. “GE has long been the gold standard for training in our industry so adding a third former member to our operations team has been huge in maintaining our customer centric business model while continuing to grow our client base.”
Liberty Commercial Finance provides competitive equipment financing for even the most challenging, complex organizations. It is backed by a leading global investment management firm with over $15 billion under management.
