Meet Jim Miller
Founder / Owner , Global Trading Partners
Even before Global Trading Partners opened for business in 1992, Jim Miller saw the struggles that many start-up, entrepreneurial, small and mid-size businesses had in obtaining financing from traditional banking institutions. Knowing there was a better way, Jim created an alternative lending solution to help businesses increase their working capital without all the red tape, confusing applications, and lengthy bank underwriting processes.
Investing in the future growth opportunity of each client, not their past is the heart of Global Trading Partners. By focusing on current and recurring purchase orders, Global makes decisions quickly and facilitates transactions within a few days rather than weeks or months.
Born in Seattle, Washington and raised in California, Jim has been associated with the banking and financing industry since graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Finance degree from Santa Clara University. Prior to founding Global Trading Partners, Jim was Vice President with US Bancorp’s wholly owned subsidiary, US World Trade Corporation and Vice President of Union Bank of California.
Passionate about his family and community, Jim coaches his three sons in baseball and soccer and remains active as past president and board member of his North County San Diego community’s Little League and other charitable and community organizations. Outside of business and community interests, Jim and his wife Holly maintain an active travel schedule and enjoy visiting all places far and near their home in San Diego, California.
