Last year, Liberty SBF had tremendous success with its 90% LTV loan for owner-user commercial properties. Many of Liberty SBF's customers are participating in the new economy investing in last mile warehousing and distribution facilities driven by growth in ecommerce and the "Amazon effect."

Mr. Kurtze will manage Liberty SBF's sales efforts as the company continues to increase its originations team and pushes into new markets in 2019.
