FSW Funding hired Melissa Huckins as senior vice president of Operations.

For the past nine years, Huckins worked as a financial advisor serving families, business owners and corporate executives. She also previously served as vice president of Treasury at FINOVA Capital, where she managed debt and cash management units, including risk management, debt capital markets, accounting, trading and bank relations.

“We have searched for over a year to find the right candidate and are very fortunate to have Melissa join the FSW team,” said Robyn Barrett, founder and managing member of FSW Funding. “We expect FSW’s operational processes and client customer service to greatly benefit under her management.”

Based in Phoenix, FSW Funding is a factoring firm that offers lines of credit to small and mid-size business-to-business and business-to-government companies.
