Joshua Zickefoose (JZ) joined IOU Financial in July 2019 as VP of Sales & Strategy. He is responsible for sales strategy leadership, vision, and the strategic direction of the company. JZ has over 17 years of experience in the financial industry including sales execution, market development, strategy development, and marketing.
JZ has a bachelor’s degree in Business from Northwest Nazarene University and his MBA in International Business from Liberty University. Before becoming a businessman, he served in the United States Army as an Infantryman and served as a civilian police officer with the Richmond, Virginia Police department.
Through leadership and training of our Account Management and Account Executive teams, JZ oversees the building of meaningful partnerships with IOU brokers, ensuring they are continuously engaged as our trusted partners.
In his free time, JZ experiences the great outdoors. He likes mountain biking especially, and working out. JZ also enjoys spending quality time with his son, daughter, and wife.
His vision is to help IOU take the success of the past to a new and sustainable level through a network of commercial loan brokers. JZ believes that “fear of failure is the absence of success. A plan not executed is worthless; not having a plan is pointless. Plans only come into perfection through execution and adjustment.”
