    • 2000 Joined UCF

    I joined the United Capital team in 2000. I’m glad you are on our website. If you’re a client, thanks for your trust; if you are a prospective client, I hope you give us a chance. While not working, my wife Kristine and I are busy raising our four children. It’s always something, but time well spent. Family events include all types of water sports, golf, volleyball, soccer and basketball; with some good meals mixed in. I was born in Dallas but my folks moved back to the Tampa Bay area when I was two. Florida has been home ever since, as I went to college at the University of South Florida in Tampa. We would welcome the opportunity to serve you.

    I founded United Capital with Jerry Curley in 1997. It has been a very rewarding experience, as I feel like we have helped a lot of businesses take their organizations to the next level. I am primarily responsible for the finance, underwriting and IT functions for the firm, but spend some time on business developments as well. I got married in 2011 to my lovely wife, Terri. I have a fabulous daughter, Addison and a very young Golden Retriever named Bo.

  • Barb Coakley
    Senior Staff Accountant

    I have been the “bean counter” at United Capital Funding since 2002; officially the title on my business card is Senior Staff Accountant. I have been promised this is not related to my age, but since I am the only one, I’m not so sure.

    I earned my BS in Accounting from the University of South Florida in 2006, working and attending classes at night. I enjoy working here and our corporate culture can’t be beat. I fully intend to remain working here until and possibly past retirement age.

    I work in the Marketing Department and have since I joined the company in 2004. My job duties are varied and that is what keeps the job interesting. The best part of my job is speaking to all of the people that call us seeking information about our company. Over the last 8 years we have signed up hundreds of clients and I think that I have spoken to every one of them. All of the stories are different, but the needs are the same.

    Senior Credit Analyst / Underwriter

    I started working at United Capital in 2001, and I’m lucky to work for a company with such strong integrity and respect for its people. Working with our friendly team is a true pleasure.

    Among other duties, my contribution at United is primarily underwriting and credit analysis. It is exciting to sign up so many new clients, various businesses that represent the whole spectrum of our economy. It is exciting to see those businesses grow with us and contribute to the growth of the US economy.
