Team

John Helmick
CEO
I am the leader of an exceptional Team of Gorillas! I seek out both debt and equity financing, so we always have enough money in the bank to purchase and remodel homes and pay our employees; to attract this financing, I oversee our core business so that our returns are attractive to capital investors. In my spare time, I enjoy feeding my goats, lifting weights, and sleeping!

If it has an electronic pulse, it is my responsibility. I oversee the technology infrastructure that Gorilla Capital utilizes daily. Additionally, you will find me on the phone and in meetings learning about new technology to help make our processes easier and more efficient. In my spare time, I enjoy live music, flying planes, comedy clubs, playing hockey, and more work ( ‘cause I have a very cool job).

Tanja Baker
Executive Vice President of Operations
I oversee the Accounting and Finance Department to ensure that our vendors, local investors and capital investors are properly paid. I also oversee the Closing Department to ensure that Gorilla Capital is correctly paid when a property sells. As an integral part of this, I monitor the ongoing accuracy of the property tracking database and our financial books and records. In my spare time, I enjoy playing volleyball, traveling, swinging kettle bells, and being active outdoors with my family and friends.
