George Vredeveld, co-founder of Q2 Business Capital, is a 23+ year veteran of the commercial banking industry. George formerly co-founded Quadrant Financial, which over its 14-year history became one of the largest small business lenders in the country. Quadrant was highly admired and repeatedly appeared on the INC 5000 fastest growing companies list.
George opened the Cincinnati, Dayton, and Northern Kentucky markets for The Money Store in 1997 and quickly established a reputation for being the “go to guy” for creative and strategic finance. His career includes small business lending and leadership roles at PNC Bank, Huntington, Bank United and Certus Bank.
Prior to returning to the Midwest, George worked in the Brussels office of Deloitte & Touche, which gave him the opportunity to work and travel extensively in Europe.
When he’s not at work, you’re likely to find George and his wife cheering on their three active kids from the sidelines of various sporting events. Boating is another family hobby, and has become a great way to celebrate the kids’ victories.
George is easy to pick out in a crowd. Look for an affable grin and a face that bears a striking resemblance to former L.A. Dodgers baseball player, Steve Garvey.
