Rosenthal & Rosenthal names Ying Yang VP for West Coast development

NEW YORK – Rosenthal & Rosenthal, a private commercial finance company specializing in factoring, asset based lending and purchase order financing, has named Ying Yang vice president.

 Rosenthal & Rosenthal entered the furniture factoring sector last year through a strategic partnership with Baron & Associates.

 In her role, Ying is responsible for business development across the firm’s divisions, with a particular focus on growing the West Coast client base.

 Ying is an experienced commercial finance executive, having spent more than 13  years at CIT Commercial Services sourcing and closing factoring and asset based lending transactions.

 “With her solution-driven mindset, strong grasp of the credit environment and proven track record in the factoring and asset based lending space, I know Ying will be a perfect addition to our West Coast division,” said Peter Rosenthal, president of Rosenthal & Rosenthal.

Fluent in Mandarin, Ying joins Rosenthal from CIT, where she served in a variety of roles, most recently as vice president of business development for the Western Region. During her tenure at CIT, she held a number of other positions, including credit analyst, account executive and senior underwriter. She previously managed the underwriting team, which structured and closed factoring programs and facilities across the apparel, footwear, accessories, textile, furniture, home furnishing, consumer electronics and housewares industries.

I'm Powell Slaughter, senior editor at Furniture/Today. I returned to the publication in January 2015 after nine years of writing about furniture retail strategies and best practices at a monthly magazine focusing on home furnishings retail operations. Prior to that, I spent 10 years with F/T covering wood furniture, the last five of those as case goods editor. While I cover occasional, home entertainment and home office here, a major responsibility is expanding our attention to the logistics side of the industry. I hope my articles will encourage a dialogue with retailers, vendors, third-party logistics specialists and carriers. I’d love to hear your ideas, concerns and suggestions for smoother flow of material and goods.
