Access Capital added Brian Richardson as a senior vice president for its business development team. Richardson will report to Raphael Torres, head of business development at Access Capital, and focus on the Mid-Atlantic and Southeast, expanding Access’s geographic presence.

Richardson previously ran a family-owned staffing company for 14 years before joining Capital Tempfunds in 2002, with Capital Tempfunds later acquired by Wells Fargo. There, Brian built a foothold in the Los Angeles market and then the Northeast market after joining Sterling National Bank.

Richardson’s experience includes providing both factoring and asset-based lending products to staffing companies. During his time at Capital Tempfunds/Wells Fargo, Richardson worked closely Torres.

“We are fortunate to have Brian join us,” Torres said. “He is a distinguished individual whose vast experience and exceptional skills will help to further enhance our team. It is with great excitement and with the anticipation of a very bright future that we welcome Brian. I am honored to have the opportunity to reconnect with a treasured friend and colleague and look forward to the remarkable achievements we can reach together, fortified by the unwavering backing of the esteemed Access Capital team.”
