FSW Funding (FSW) is excited to welcome our 2020 interns, Sofia Montano and Eric O’Grady! FSW provides interns with a diverse range of experience in the financial lending space. The goal of our program is to showcase the factoring industry while exposing them to all sectors of finance, including accounting, underwriting, portfolio management, business development, and marketing.

Sofia Montano is currently a junior at Arizona State University, majoring in Accountancy and pursuing a certificate in Applied Business Data Analytics. Once she finishes her Bachelor’s degree, she plans on becoming a licensed CPA. When she heads back to ASU in the fall, she hope to join more business clubs and hold a position on the executive boards. In her free time, Sofia loves working out and staying active, as she was in competitive cheer during high school and college.  Sofia’s passions include baking and DIY projects.

Eric O’Grady, who is also working for Robyn’s supply Chain Finance company, Artis Trade Systems, is an accounting major studying at the University of Oregon in Eugene. Eric plans to graduate in the Spring of 2021 with a bachelor’s degree. He is originally from Portland, Oregon and in his free time loves to go hiking and play basketball.

Robyn Barrett, FSW’s Founder and Managing Member, says, “FSW loves being able to provide current students with some real world work experience. Nothing is more valuable than seeing how the business environment functions in a real office setting. I know my previous internships when I was younger helped put me in a position to succeed and figure out what I wanted to do. Eric and Sofia have been great this summer and want to learn about what we do! We look forward to seeing them thrive in their own careers, and hiring additional interns in the future.”

FSW Funding was founded in 2001 with the goal of offering unique and affordable factoring programs to businesses across the country. Since that time, FSW has grown into a company with an annual volume of approximately $200-$250 million funded and has carved out a niche for itself in the industry by providing innovative and flexible factoring and ABL programs to today’s businesses.
