With a BA from Colgate and MBA from Darden, Gordon Sidford, the founder and hands-on President of Sidford Commercial Funding,  left for San Francisco to start a 9-yr stint selling computers for Honeywell. Gordon then joined the family coal sales business growing that to 1 million+ tons/year shipping to Ontario Hydro, Atlantic Electric, and other major consumers. He served on the Board of the New York Coal Trade Association and was Managing Director of the Canadian-American Coal Association.

In the late 90’s, Gordon entered the mortgage business ultimately opening his own branch serving residential and commercial clients.
