Joseph LaForte has helped countless businesses break that cycle and experience higher levels of financial success.
The former catcher for the Seattle Mariners transitioned to the financial services industry, where he has spent the past twenty years gathering experience and garnering the respect of industry peers and the businesses that he supports alike. At Par Funding, where he has been since 2013, LaForte works as the Director of Sales. His integral role in the company has assisted more than 15,000 small businesses as they have made the shift to greater financial stability and, ultimately, to better overall customer service.
LaForte’s efforts haven’t just transformed the companies that turn to Par Funding for financial assistance. He has also revolutionized his company. Throughout his years there, he has helped the company ride out many storms, including trials that could, without proper guidance, have sent the company spiraling. LaForte, however, has helped the company remain focused. Throughout his tenure there, he has set the company up to offer additional services and support, increasing the service offered to Par Funding customers and, in turn, increasing their overall levels of success. Not only has he introduced new technology that has assisted at the company-wide level, he has done the research to better understand available community initiatives and how they can benefit both his company and others. Over the years, his efforts have helped countless businesses achieve their overall goals of financial stability, which in turn has helped make them more successful representatives of their own industries.
When he’s not working hard to keep the businesses supported by Par Funding at the top of their industry, LaForte volunteers his time within the community. In addition to his professional efforts, he connects with churches and charities in the local community to help support struggling business owners and youth who need additional support to break out of their current situations. Through his efforts, he has helped many struggling young adults and adults alike change their financial circumstances for the better, from staring their own businesses to improving the conditions of their current companies or current positions. Through his mentorship and connection with young people and adults alike, he has been able to help many people break the cycle of poverty and achieve their overall financial goals.
LaForte’s stellar reputation, both within the financial industry and with the companies he works with on a regular basis, is well-deserved—and his commitment to helping others achieve financial success has helped cement that position.
