TUSTIN, CALIFORNIA – Nov. 22, 2022 — Liberty Commercial Finance LLC has changed its name to Wingspire Equipment Finance LLC, adopted a new logo, and redesigned its website as it integrates with parent company Wingspire Capital Holdings LLC.

Earlier this year, Wingspire Capital acquired majority ownership of Liberty to gain a fast-growing direct originations platform with nationwide reach providing equipment finance solutions to middle-market companies.

“Adopting the Wingspire name as we combine with their global capital platform and integrate our company cultures positions Wingspire Equipment Finance for a new stage of growth as a lender of choice in the middle market sector,” said Eric Freeman, Founder and CEO of Wingspire Equipment Finance, formerly known as Liberty Commercial Finance.

Since inception in 2017, Wingspire Equipment Finance has originated over $1.4 billion in total equipment finance volume and built a diversified portfolio with middle market borrowers across industries.

Wingspire Equipment Finance provides both direct financing and syndications, allowing it to offer flexible, customer-centric solutions and dynamically respond to changes in market conditions. The company’s underwriting, originations and capital markets teams are all headed by seasoned veterans and its headquarters office is based in Tustin, California.

“We are pleased to welcome the entire Wingspire Equipment Finance team to the Wingspire Capital and Blue Owl family as we combine teams, resources and permanent capital to extend our reach deeper into the middle market,” said David Wisen, Co-Founder and CEO of Wingspire Capital.
