Brian Acosta is the founder and CEO of Matrix Business Capital, a Long Beach Financial Company.
A graduate of California Polytechnic State University, Brian spent his first five years after college working in the telecommunications industry. In just 90 days he became the #1 producer for a Fortune 250 company, out of over 800 national sales representatives. He was recruited to Dallas, Texas to set up a national telecom long distance program throughout the U.S. and Canada.
His career in the equipment leasing business began in January 2000, and he spent his first seven months working the middle market for deals between $100,000 – $5 million. This experience was positive, but ignited a desire to offer personal and premium service to smaller businesses and startups. Brian eventually transitioned into small ticket deals, beginning in the trenches by making over 150 cold calls per day, building a strong book of repeat clients and vendors and learning the ins and outs of each industry and its equipment needs.
In 2006, Brian obtained his Certified Leasing Professional (CLP) certification, CA Lenders License and founded Matrix Business Capital. The past decade has been cold call free, to the point that Matrix has expanded to manage its overflow business. Today, owing to positive, long term partnerships with vendors and a fantastic office and sales staff, Matrix Business Capital is thriving. Brian’s mission statement is as follows: “To create freedom for the members of our team and make a difference for the people we serve.”
A Pac 10 collegiate wrestler while attending Cal Poly, Brian is still an avid athletic competitor today. He is a dedicated triathlete (qualifying for the Kona World Championships Iron Man after only three years), a trained MMA fighter and has competed in the Octagon. In his well-planned spare time he enjoys scuba diving and hot yoga.
