Before founding Hillcrest Financial in early 2015, Jeff started two companies in Atlanta, Georgia that served consumers with credit and debt solutions in 1992. While humble beginnings, Jeff held various management positions over the years in Atlanta while  still servicing his clients.  Jeff moved to Monterey, CA and continued to build his clientele.  Business grew and Jeff added the lending platform and developed Alternative Capital Solutions, where he served as the Chief Executive Officer focusing on new business development and financial lending.  In early 2015, the emerging of Hillcrest Financial was completed as more business owners requested assistance with development of business credit.  Jeff previously has also worked as a senior financial representative with the federal government and has worked as a management consultant to the financial services industry, advertising sales manager for the popular marketing company; general manager of a real estate conglomerate and continues as Pastor of New Visions Church.
