John Helmick
CEO
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!
Caitlin Knudsen
Executive Assistant To The Ceo
I keep our CEO on schedule and assist him with capital investor relations and compiling the management reports he needs. In my work “spare time” I act as a paralegal for our Legal Department. In my spare time at home, I enjoy spending time with my family, preferably while eating tacos or burritos and watching Netflix originals.

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).
