Reliant Funding hired Gianna Ravenscroft as general counsel. Ravenscroft has more than 15 years of experience practicing exclusively in the areas of banking and finance law.
Ravenscroft will serve as a strategic partner to Reliant Funding’s executive team and will be responsible for providing effective advice on company strategies and implementation, managing the legal and compliance functions, and overseeing relationships with outside counsel.
“Internal legal counsel can be complex – we were looking for someone that is well-educated, experienced, smart, aggressive and fits into our unique culture,” said Reliant Funding Founder and CEO Adam Stettner. “General counsel needs to assist in enabling us to achieve our goals while making certain we are compliant and protected – a tall order. Gianna fits the bill perfectly.”
Prior to Reliant Funding, Ravenscroft served as associate general counsel at Axos Bank (formerly BofI Federal Bank) where she provided legal support to areas such as compliance, corporate governance, human resources and more. Additionally, she served as managing counsel at Toyota Financial Services and worked in private practices in Washington, D.C., including at the prestigious WilmerHale.
Headquartered in San Diego, CA with offices in New York, Reliant Funding provides customized, short-term funding to small and mid-sized businesses nationwide.
