I am proud to have been elected the new president of the CFCC.
I appreciate the confidence the CFCC's board has shown in electing me to the job.
I am equally proud to be the president of State Financial Corporation, a
founding member of the CFCC. In fact, as many of you may know, my father,
Irving Reiss, was elected the CFCC's first President in 1970.
In the coming months I hope to help the CFCC grow and continue to be a
source of information for our industry. I recognize the great changes that
are occurring in Southern California business and in the commercial finance
industry, and my goal is to keep the CFCC moving to adapt to those changes.
In particular, I look forward to offering membership to new firms entering
the industry & the local market, and to build on the success of YoPro and
Women of CFCC events to further increase participation by women and young
professionals. I especially hope to encourage relationship managers,
underwriters and auditors to attend our events, as well as designing
programs to target our younger members.
I'd like to thank our sponsors for their continued support of CFCC, who in
so many ways, help make this organization endure. I hope that you will
reciprocate by calling our sponsors for assistance whenever possible.
Finally, I encourage you to discuss with me, or any other board member, what
you think the CFCC should be doing. Recommendations for meeting topics are
welcome. Let us know at any of the upcoming events or give
me a call at (310) 820-5222.
I look forward to hearing from you and seeing you at our events.
All the best in 2016.
Commercial Finance Conference of California
