Cincinnati, OH - Verdant Commercial Capital announces the retirement of Jeff Glikman, founder and president of Intech Funding Corporation, effective June 30, 2021. Intech, a finance company focused on the machine tool industry, was started by Glickman and Ric Rivett in 1995. Intech is located in Monrovia, California.
“I worked my way through college for a used machinery dealer that had a full rebuilding facility. That was over 40 years ago, and at the time I had no idea how valuable that shop experience would be for my future career,” Glikman recalled. “Before starting Intech, I had the good fortune of working for 20 years for Machinery Sales Company, a large machine tool distributor based on the West Coast. Working on the shop floor in the machine tool business gave me perspective in how to best serve customers in need of equipment financing.”
