Hitachi Business Finance announced that Christopher Mitchell has joined their team as Regional Vice President, Business Development. Mitchell will concentrate his efforts on attracting new clients in the Southeast region, including Georgia, North and South Carolina, Florida, and Alabama.

“Chris is an exciting new addition to our team. He brings extensive experience in asset-based lending and factoring and his deep-rooted relationships will prove to be instrumental as we work to bring awareness to the Hitachi Business Finance name in the Southeast,” states Mike Semanco, president and COO.

In his role, Mitchell is responsible for connecting with business owners and communicating the variety of creative, flexible financing options offered by Hitachi Business Finance. He will act as a resource to help entrepreneurs determine the most effective means to accessing capital for their businesses.

The addition of Mitchell is another step in strengthening the company’s expansion plans across the Eastern United States. Earlier this year, Hitachi Business Finance added MJ Hilker in the Ohio, Kentucky, and Pennsylvania markets, and the company added a new Government Finance division in Maryland just last month.  

Mitchell is based in Atlanta, GA and brings more than 22 years of experience in financing and investing in growing companies. Most recently, he was with Gibraltar Business Credit, where he served as a Senior Vice President. Mitchell also worked at Dominion Business Finance and First Capital Corporation.

Mitchell has a Bachelor of Science degree from Auburn University. He is an active member of the Association for Corporate Growth (ACG), Turnaround Management Association (TMA), and Commercial Finance Association (CFA).

Hitachi Business Finance (formerly Hennessey Capital) is a division of Hitachi Capital America Corp. and provides customized, flexible financing solutions for companies looking for creative options to grow and sustain their businesses. Our solutions include factoring and revolving lines of credit secured by accounts receivable, inventory, and equipment. Based in Rochester, Michigan, we provide financing solutions for small- to mid-market companies across the United States.
