Garden City, NY (PRWEB) April 01, 2014
NAPW honors Christine Arroyo as a 2014 Professional Woman of the Year. This prestigious distinction recognizes Ms. Arroyo for her leadership in finance. As the largest, most-recognized organization of women in the country, spanning virtually every industry and profession, the National Association of Professional Women is a powerfully vibrant networking community with over 600,000 members and nearly 400 Local Chapters.
“CNJ Financial Services just celebrated its one-year anniversary. We focus on helping businesses with credit challenges and offer alternative finance resources,” said Ms. Arroyo, president of CNJ Financial Services.
Ms. Arroyo has been in the financial services field for nearly 20 years, and enjoyed a successful career working at a large hedge fund firm. There, she honed her skills in finance and budgeting, marketing, business management and development, operations management, troubleshooting and solutions, and research and analysis. Last year, when the firm she was working at closed its doors, Ms. Arroyo seized the opportunity to strike out on her own. A single mom, she made the bold leap to entrepreneurship and founded CNJ Financial Services, where she offers her expertise as an alternative funding specialist.
“I wanted to help those individuals who really need it. At hedge funds, they help themselves, clients are well-to-do. What I do now is so much more rewarding,” says Ms. Arroyo. CNJ Financial Services offers its clients a myriad of products that help minimize risk, including equipment leases; 30,60 and 90-day contracts; commercial real estate loans and much more. “We have a lot of different products, from basic cash advance to nonprofit lending. We work with all different size companies, large and small, across the board,” adds Ms. Arroyo.
“When I first started in the industry, I didn’t know anything. It was a temp-to-perm position and I really fell into it by accident,” says Ms. Arroyo. “But I worked hard and it became a stepping stone to where I am today.”
