Meet Our Team

Sara Weldon

Sara Weldon, President

Sara Weldon started her first business at the age of 20 and learned everything through first-hand experience, quite the mixture of tremendous success combined with failures. She quickly learned the importance of always offering excellent customer service and letting every employee know just how appreciated they are.

Throughout her career, she has developed and sold several companies and worked in the software industry with many leading hotels and resorts. She started TruFinCo to get back to her beginning and be able to help others that are on similar paths. She is driven by helping others and always willing to share her journey, including the successes and mistakes she’s made along the way, with hopes that it might inspire others.

When working with her, you will always feel like you have someone by your side, guiding and supporting you. Aside from running her company, you can find her enjoying her farm in Florida, surrounded by hundreds of animals, from highland cows and goats to more chickens than she can count. This is her key to achieving a healthy work/life balance.

Rick Bass

Rick Bass,
Vice President

With over 25 years of lending experience, Rick Bass has worked in various aspects of funding, from mortgages to business funding. He quickly became the guy that could “get it done,” and nothing has given him more pride in his career. Mr. Bass enjoys working with clients that have been told no by other lenders and are close to giving up on their dreams. He embraces the challenge and loves nothing more than finding creative ways to get them the financing they need.

At TruFinCo, we understand the challenges that business owners face, and we make sure we stay professional. But, we are also real people that enjoy building a friendship with all of our clients and partners. Mr. Bass is eager to help you, but more importantly, he wants to build a lasting relationship with you!
