Rapid Financial Services, LLC's Chief Executive Officer, Jeremy Brown stated: "Wells Fargo is the premier lender to the Merchant Cash Advance industry.  The fact that we were able to close this facility is a testament to the strength of our business, our management team and employees, and the data collection and analysis that we perform in underwriting and managing our portfolio every day.  This facility will enhance our ability to grow and continue to expand our services to our clients, partners and small business owners as a whole."
