Eric Freeman launched Liberty Commercial Finance in April 2017, and in less than three years the independent finance company was on the receiving end of a minority investment from Copley Equity Partners. Charting the No. 1 new business volume of the 101+ group in 2019, Liberty has established a solid trajectory for growth in the years to come.
Eric Freeman began his equipment finance career in 2003 at a small independent in Southern California. Given a cubicle and a list of old leads to cold call, his manager instructed him to find some business.
“I picked [up] the phone, started cold calling and found some early success in the business, and just figured it out,” Freeman says.
