Gerber Finance expanded to the West Coast with the opening of its San Diego office. Industry veterans Rachel Donaghy and Lorraine Julius joined the new office as vice president and senior relationship manager, respectively.

Donaghy joined Gerber with more than 10 years of industry experience at eCapital, where she rose through the ranks and gained experience in each area of the firm’s business.

A 20-year industry veteran, Julius brings a wealth of knowledge and experience in sourcing and cultivating new deals. She previously served as vice president at LSQ for 13 years and before that, acted as national sales manager of Capital Partners.

“Gerber Finance has experienced tremendous growth over the past few years, particularly on the West Coast,” said Gerald Joseph, founder and CEO of Gerber Finance. “Combined with our operations on the East Coast, our physical presence in the West gives us the ability to further expand our portfolio and better service our West Coast clients.”
