My Story

Elliot started his career in 2005 as a sales associate with Silverhill Financial (a division of Bayview Funding) where he was quickly promoted from underwriting commercial real estate transactions up to $3MM, to overseeing a 4-state territory located in the Gulf Region. In 2007 Elliot was recruited by JP Morgan Chase to join their Houston based commercial lending team, where he provided commercial loans on real estate, equipment, and working capital. At his time of departure, Elliot was ranked in the top 3% in the US out of 700 bankers for portfolio profitability. In mid 2010, Elliot joined Gulf Coast Business Credit (factoring division of Gulf Coast Bank and Trust) to run the Houston Market.  Elliot was consistently a  top performer at GCBC for his 4.5 years, ultimately culminating in him being recruited as a National Sales Manager for a startup factoring company by the name of Sallyport Commercial Finance, where he helped build the business from scratch into a formidable contender in the market. In 2015 Elliot joined Amerisource Funding (founded in 1984) as their National Sales Manager, where he led a sales turnaround strategy achieving year over year annualized growth of 30%+ from 2015 until the present. During his tenure, the company’s portfolio nearly doubled in size.

 

Elliot holds a double major, BS in Business Management and a BA in Communications Studies, from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. During his spare time he enjoys spending time with family, coaching his children’s sports teams, fishing, exercising, and traveling.
