Betty Hernandez“This election has brought me to a different level of service with the CFA. I have been serving this organization in various capacities both on the national level as well as my local chapter level for many years. I have served on the board of the New Jersey CFA Chapter and was President of the Chapter in 2004. Most recently I have served as a panelist representing the smaller asset based lenders in various panel discussions geared toward college students who might potentially desire a future in our industry. On the national level, I have been on the Industry Needs-Analysis Committee, am a Chair of the Women in Commercial Finance’s SubCommittee for the Essay Contest. I have traveled to Bogota, Colombia twice, promoting and teaching lenders, politicians and others the art of asset based lending. All of these experiences have reinforced my love for our industry. I’m excited and honored to continue my service to the CFA as an Executive Committee member. I will focus on serving the needs of the smaller asset-based lenders and factoring companies, as well as continued education of our industry,” said Ms. Hernandez.

At North Mill Capital LLC, Ms. Hernandez oversees the credit quality of the asset-based lending and factoring portfolios. She was one of the founding members and has worked with many of the same team members since 1990 at First Fidelity bank.

Ms. Hernandez graduated from Rutgers University-Newark College of Arts and Sciences with a B.A. in Economics and received her Masters in Business degree from Rutgers University’s School of Business with a concentration in Finance.
