Gateway Trade Funding offers finance options at Winter OR


Brea, Calif. – Outdoor industry companies searching for the perfect short-term financing solution are encouraged to stop by the Gateway Trade Funding booth at the Outdoor Retailer Winter Market trade show and learn more about available, affordable options.

Gateway Trade Funding, a trusted financial partner with deep roots in ski, outdoor and action sport markets will be in Booth BRL224 at the annual trade show held Jan 10-12 in Salt Lake City at the Salt Palace. Gateway offers rapid, customizable financing solutions for growing businesses. With an array of financial tools, and specializing in purchase order funding, Gateway helps organizations finalize production and ensure timely delivery to customers.

Headed by Ned Post and Tom Novembrino – an experienced duo with deep roots in the outdoor and banking industries – Gateway Trade Funding outdoor team has a goal to assist rising brands that have the opportunity to grow within their grasp but don’t want to surrender their hard-earned equity.

Gateway specializes in assembling purchase order funding programs for small-to-midsized producers and wholesalers struggling to secure money to keep the company growing in that period between closing a preseason order and delivering the products to the retailer. Many companies in that position simply sell off an ownership stake – a fix that may deliver an infusion of cash, but often comes with long-term drawbacks including a loss of entrepreneurial control.

“While already a staple in other markets and industries, purchase order funding is just now establishing itself in the outdoor and adventure sport market,” said Post, former president of Smith Optics. “Ski, outerwear and accessory manufacturers have taken advantages of PO funding. It is not a bank loan. Companies we work with are not required to surrender a drop of their equity. We have time at Outdoor Retailer to explain how it one of our programs can assist in jumpstarting growth.”

Unlike other finance companies, Gateway is extremely flexible in its approach. With Gateway, there are no minimum fee requirements, no minimum deal size and no minimum time commitment. Additionally, Gateway expertly customizes funding programs for each individual client.

To schedule an appointment in advance of OR, email Post at or Novembrino at Or call Post at (208) 720-0695.

Both will be in Booth #BRL224 throughout the duration of OR.


Gateway Trade Funding is one of the largest providers of purchase order/trade finance in the United States and Canada. Gateway’s staff has decades of experience in both privately held entrepreneurial business and the many facets of commercial finance: lending, underwriting and the structuring of complex international transactions. Gateway’s outdoor effort is supported by a 15-person staff in Highland Park, IL.
