Secured $67 million in growth capital for fellow Entrepreneurs
September 17, 2008: Shivers are running through the financial markets
It’s September 17, 2008, one day after the collapse of Lehman Brothers. Shivers are running through the financial markets, and pouring (not trickling) down to small businesses and consumers. How is it that given the immediate and profound ripple emanating from the first of several catastrophic events on Wall Street, I’m able to get five offers for bank financing? Very simple – Rich Russakoff. The package he prepared on my firm’s behalf was so impressive by virtue of its copiousness that banks felt embarrassed to consider saying ‘no.'”
Master at helping businesses
Rich is a master at helping businesses land the perfect bank loan – a loan structured so it supports the business model, marshaled through the process by the right banker for your business. All too often, business owners approach the loan process in a sloppy and shoot-from-the-hip manner. Instead, it’s a process that demands precision. Handled correctly, it can mean the difference between sleepless nights and peace of mind. Without question, Rich Russakoff is the best at putting together a loan package that makes banks compete for your business.
