Aamer Abdullah — Ribbon’s vice president of capital markets and finance — joined the company with the goal of democratizing access to complex financial tools. Abdullah’s leadership has led Ribbon to advance one of the first appraisal-focused solutions among the “power buyer” set in 2021. His leadership has also facilitated the expertise and relationships needed to fund sell-side products in the coming months.
In 2021, Abdullah led Ribbon’s latest funding round and secured $150 million, inclusive of $75 million in Series C equity financing and $75 million in additional working capital. This, along with Abdullah’s work to upsize Ribbon’s $500 million credit facility, will enable Ribbon to take on rapid expansion in 2022 to half of the U.S.
Abdullah has brought more lending relationships to Ribbon’s roster, ensuring the full funding of financial products. He has consolidated Ribbon’s risk and portfolio operations and management with capital markets, facilitating four-times growth since joining the company.
