First Down Funding -- Washington, DC -- Jess Smith Becomes the Youngest Vice President in First Down Funding's History

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwired - March 07, 2016) - Jess Smith has made history by becoming the youngest-ever Vice President at First Down Funding.

The 29-year-old has become the new VP of Funding. Just like the rest of the team, Jess is committed to supporting local business, and she loves working with local business owners in Baltimore and Washington DC.

Baltimore born and raised, Jess is not only the youngest VP First Down Funding has ever had, she's also the most successful.

With an established background in real estate, Jess, who was born in Roland Park, has flourished within First Down Funding. She had notable success growing the local DC, and Baltimore, Maryland clientele thanks to her customer-first approach.

As she said, "It is incredible to offer Same Day Approvals and Same Day Funding options, especially within the markets today, and the ability to give businesses second chances."

For Jess, business is all about people. Her attitude is customer-focused, and she fits seamlessly into First Down Funding's ideals of giving personal attention to each individual client's needs while supporting small and medium-sized enterprises.

Jess was educated at Towson University. Her own experience of moving home throughout Anne Arundel, Baltimore, Harford, and Montgomery counties allowed her to bring a wealth of local knowledge to her career as a realtor.

She initially joined First Down Funding as a loan originator, helping small businesses secure the funding they need to grow and boost their local economies. Alongside founder and industry game-changer Paul Pitcher as well as spokesman C.J. Mosley, the hard-hitting Baltimore Ravens linebacker and Bret "Hitman" Hart, WWE Superstar and Hall of Fame Legend, Jess has continued to make a significant impact in every position she has served with First Down Funding.

Small and medium-sized enterprises can use this funding to refinance existing debt, buy new equipment, hire new employees, or launch advertising campaigns to help their businesses flourish while increasing local employment.

First Down Funding also helps lift the burden from start-up businesses by restructuring their debts and giving them more affordable payments every month. Additionally, they give growing companies an operating cash facility, allowing them to create a fund to hedge against the risk of unforeseen expenses.

Jess's top business skills include sales, leadership, marketing, customer service, and real estate transactions.

When she has some spare time, Jess enjoys long walks with her dog, a Shihtzu called CoCo. She also enjoys red wine and takes frequent excursions to Napa Valley, California.
