CEO Founder of Coastal Kapital Kortney Murray is one of the most connected female business leaders on the East Coast. After opening and, ultimately, closing her first business—a clothing boutique in San Diego—she moved into finance to help other small business owners, like herself, face the enormous challenge of navigating the financial world. As her knowledge of the industry grew, she formed her own company, Farhat Leasing, LLC in 2007, which became the springboard for her current company, Coastal Kapital LLC. Kortney has been featured on Nasdaq, Newsmax, Bloomberg and Fox Business and in magazines such as USA Today, Forbes, Entrepreneur Magazine, LA Tribune, Think and Grow Rich, and many more. She also sits on the board of American Association of Commercial Finance Brokers (AACFB). Kortney and her husband Chris are yoga instructors, the proud owners of four rescue felines, avid travelers and boaters, and rally for many charitable causes, most recently for autism spectrum disorders and cancer research.
