CO-FOUNDER, PRESIDENT – COMMERCIAL BANKING
“For all the crunching of numbers, ours
is still a relationship business. So why
did Rockford choose AloStar over a big
multinational bank? It came down to the
simple fact that our senior management and
their senior management could meet face-to-face. That’s how we do business, face-to-face.
Because, beyond the spreadsheets, the way
you really come to understand the true value
of a company is by being in it, talking to its
leadership, and understanding its market.
And that’s where our people excel. That’s
what we call thinking capital.”
CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER
ROCKFORD PRODUCTS, LLC
“Operational challenges had led to some
short-term losses, and we needed working
capital. Our existing lender had a stratified
management structure that distanced their
senior management from us and was an asset-based lender thinking like a cash-flow lender.
We needed a true asset-based lender. And,
we needed to know their senior management
was in our camp. AloStar got into the nuts
and bolts of our plan. They believed in it.
And that made the difference. Being able to
work directly with real business people beats
bureaucracy every day of the week.”
