About Us

PBC Finance

Your Equipment Finance Lender

Providing the best finance options for your semi-tractor, truck, trailer or construction equipment.

PBC Finance is the preferred lender for trucking and construction companies because we take the guesswork out of the process of financing trucks, trailers, and construction equipment. Commercial lending can be confusing. Let PBC walk you through the terms, rates, residuals, and all other details. Another advantage to using PBC is that we can get you 2-3 offers which saves you time and money!

We pride ourselves on honesty and integrity. We deliver what is promised. Our goal is for a long-term relationship with our customers.

My career in Commercial Financing began at Associates Commercial Corp. It was a great place to work and I learned all aspects of financing equipment. A few years later I obtained my Insurance License and was promoted to Insurance Sales Manager to help customers with their insurance needs. I met many wonderful people while I was there. One of them was Kip Ekker from Kenworth Sales. He eventually hired me to be the Finance and Insurance Manager for the Western States. I also met my husband, Jerry Mika at Kenworth and we always had a goal of owning our own business. After almost 27 years at Kenworth we formed Professional Business Connections dba PBC Finance.

Jerry and I were both born and raised in beautiful Utah. We love to travel, golf, boating, fishing, and spending time with our family and our 3 beautiful granddaughters.

I am super excited for the future of PBC Finance, as continue to grow and add to our Sales team.

Our top priority is and always will be customer service! We pride ourselves on putting the customer first and providing them with the financing they need to help their businesses grow.

Jerry Mika

I was born and raised in Sandy Utah. Growing up my father worked at Peterbilt for 39 years. I spent a lot of time around trucks. I have worked in the transportation industry for over 20 years selling commercial truck tires to fleets, dealers, and owner-operators.

In 2008 I met my wife Diane at Kenworth Sales in SLC. We have 3 awesome sons, a beautiful daughter-in-law, and 3 beautiful granddaughters. We are blessed. We love to travel with our new puppy Jäger, camping, golfing, fishing, and the outdoors.

Diane and I started our company; Professional Business Connections LLC dba PBC Finance in January of 2020. Diane has over 26 years of experience financing trucks, trailers, and construction equipment.

My love of the outdoors has earned a Guinness book of world records for the first ever 360 virtual reality video filmed on the summit of Mt Everest in 2012. In 2007 I was the base camp manager for the strongest team in the history of Mt. Everest. This has taught me to overcome many obstacles in life and in business.

In 2009 Apa Sherpa and I formed the Apa Sherpa Foundation, a 501c3 nonprofit. We feed 90 children daily, support teachers wages and currently we are building an orphanage in Nepal for the children.

We pride ourselves on honesty and integrity and helping our customers succeed is our top priority. We are excited for our future as we continue to grow!

Hi, I am thrilled to represent PBC Finance as they are respected and experienced leaders in commercial equipment lending. I have known them professionally for many years and am impressed with their attention to service and ability to secure competitive rates from their long standing and reputable relationships with lenders.

Why I am here: I help dealer partners and end users of commercial equipment across the country to scale profits. Outside of my profession, I enjoy cooking, watching sports, and chillaxing on a porch with loved ones. Often those loved ones are relationships I have built in the trucking and commercial equipment industry. I am honored to take this next step in my career with an outstanding team!
