Brandy HefnerBrandy Hefner

VP, Senior Credit Analyst

Brandy Hefner has been underwriting business loans for more than 16 years. Her underwriting career began at Goleta National Bank, later known as Community West Bank. As Brandy’s experience in commercial lending grew, she made the decision to specialize in SBA loans, and became a valuable member of the Quadrant Financial small business lending team. Quadrant transitioned to CertusBank, and eventually BankUnited, where Brandy remained a key contributor.

Across her 16+ years in the industry, Brandy has seen it all. She has underwritten loans with varying levels of complexity and for companies representing too many industries to name. At the end of the day, her favorite part of the job is hearing her borrowers’ success stories. She is inspired to know that what she does makes a difference in the lives of others.

Brandy enjoys spending her free time with her husband at their kids’ various sporting and school activities. She is usually the one carrying a large cup of coffee – iced in the summer, and steaming in the winter.
