National Funding Announces New President
Today National Funding announced that Joseph Gaudio has been promoted to President of the company, reporting directly to founder and CEO Dave Gilbert. Previously, Gaudio was Chief Operating Officer.
“I can’t think of a more exciting time to be a part of the business and the SMB lending industry,” Gaudio said. “I look forward to working closely with our talented senior leadership team to further our mission of helping small businesses across the U.S. secure the critical capital they need to grow their businesses.”
This announcement comes just weeks after National Funding acquired QuickBridge, another alternative lender based in California.
Prior to joining National Funding, Gaudio was the CEO of Superior Mobile Medics for five years. He led the sale of the company to Quest Diagnostics and then served as part of the integration of the acquisition for Quest.
“Since joining National Funding in 2017, Joseph has helped propel the company to one of the top 10 alternative SMB lenders in the nation, and has been a driving force during our rapid growth,” Gilbert said. “Joseph’s strategic thinking capabilities, strong business acumen and his more than a decade of industry experience geared towards the small to medium business market provides critical firepower as we build National Funding into the leading brand serving the financial needs of Main Street America.”
Founded in 1999, National Funding is based in San Diego and employs roughly 230 people. It now also owns QuickBridge, with headquarters in Irvine, CA and a small satellite office in New York. The QuickBridge name and most all of its 100 employees remained in the recent acquisition. National Funding has provided more than $3 billion in capital to over 40,000 businesses nationwide with loan volume expected to exceed $500 million this year.
