Sean Duffy
CFO

Sean Duffy joined Global Financial as the Chief Financial Officer in April 2016.  He has spent the majority of his career, helping small to medium sized companies achieve their growth objectives by providing outstanding financial and operational leadership.  Sean started his career in Portland, OR with stints as an Associate for a boutique Investment Banking firm, an internal auditor for Red Lion Hotels and then a Controller for a startup medical supplies company.  After successfully divesting the medical supply company to a strategic investor, he was asked to join Marquis Companies, a provider of senior healthcare services.  While there, Sean further developed his entrepreneurial spirit by helping the organization go from less than $10 million in annual revenues to more than $80 million through organic growth and numerous acquisitions. 

After moving to Arizona in 2003, Sean became a partner at Tatum, LLC, a national company that provided financial and technology consulting services to a wide range of companies.  While there he worked on a number of turn around opportunities.  This experience led him to Active Finance Group, a hard-money-lender serving residential real estate investors.  Originally engaged as an interim solution at the request of the company’s senior lender, Sean became the full time CFO and an equity partner after managing a complete turnover of the Accounting department and the company’s financial management system.

Sean has a BA in Accounting from the University of Portland and received an MBA in finance from Portland State University while working full time.  His vast experience in the small to medium size organization structures will enable him to be a valuable member to our credit committee.

Just wanted to thank you again! I just picked up five new vehicles from a lease I acquired from your friend! I am so excited! Again I cannot thank you enough for all that you have done for me!

Not your average lender! Judi and her staff were very professional and prompt in helping us to acquire much needed equipment which will allow us to grow our company. Very fair and willing to work with us through the entire purchase and assured that all vendors involved had fulfilled their orders and met my needs.

Judi, please accept my thanks to you and the team there for the very nice cookie basket. We received it this morning and it was a big hit with our staff. Your thoughtfulness is much appreciated and admirable. Again, my thanks to you and Larry for the smooth financing transaction we just completed. Have a great weekend. Now I have to go find some milk.

IT/Telecom Vendor Sales Rep
Global provided our company with financing resources when every other firm said no. Both Jim and Judi Jenks have been supportive beyond any experience I’ve had with other financing firms, their professionalism and “going the extra mile” for their client was the norm, not the exception. I highly recommend Global for your financing needs as you will be dealing with people who truly practice what they preach.

R. Morris, CFO & Treasurer

Larry, I really appreciate you working so diligently on this lease application and approval. You are a true professional!

P. Bosley, Mgr. Member, Vendor
Sweet! Thank you so much for all of your help and incredible speed. I just wanted to tell you that this new piece of equipment will be a game changer for my business. No one within 250 miles of me has one. I will crush my competition!
D. Williams, Owner

It was the best quarter in my 4+ years at XXX!! You guys were a BIG part of it!! Thank You!!!

J, Medical Vendor
Judi your email agrees 100% with our discussion yesterday. I appreciate the customer service and you going to some trouble to help us out. That type of service is remembered and appreciated.

G. Duncan, CFO, CPA, CFE
GFRS has allowed our business the growth we needed and given us an exceptional partner we can count on. Other leasing firms were merely interested in looking for certain numbers to meet in the short term. J.D. Jenks, CEO, understood our business model, why we needed what we needed.

M.C., President
Wound Care Management Company
I want to thank you both so much for doing a wonderful job with my customers. You truly go the extra mile to assist them with their financing needs.

CP – Medical Vendor
I certainly appreciate all the effort and hard work that you put into our customers. Your dynamics show us even when the financial situations are shaky that you still come through with positive outcome. Thank you so much for your hard work.
