Allied Financial recently hired Cherie Milazzo as a new business development officer. Milazzo spent several years with two leading equipment finance companies, early in her career. Most recently, she was with a factoring company, where she served as a BDO.

Milazzo specializes in financial business development and credit analysis. In her new role, she will find, manage and cultivate relationships with potential clients in such industries as manufacturing, wholesale consumer goods, information technology, staffing and many others.

“We are very excited to have Cherie join our new business development team,” said Steven Gold, president and CEO. “She has a great deal of experience in the financial industry, and we are confident her expertise and energetic personality will help us acquire new clients in the Atlanta area and throughout the state of Georgia.”

“Allied Financial Corporation is a great fit for me,” Milazzo added. “The company is flexible and user friendly, and can help small to medium sized businesses really grow and take off. I hope my background and experience will help secure new clients for the company across all target industries.”
