“It was a long and difficult structuring given the challenges satisfying both U.S. and Mexican real estate and tax laws, and U.S. accounting rules. Your patience and perseverance in negotiating with the financial institutions was fundamental to our success. It is also to your credit that the rate we received on this financing is much more favorable than any of the transactions we benchmarked in Mexico in recent years…..Working with your firm has been a very positive experience, and we hope to have the opportunity again in the future.”      L. Whatley, General Motors, International Operations

He and his company have been involved in the finance efforts of several projects including project specific financing and acquisitions. He has been able to negotiate terms and obtain funding sources all through the recent financial crises.

Brad and his team are very adept at structuring unique and innovative ways to “Get the Deal Done”. He is able to accomplish this with the utmost of integrity and has a talent for keeping things calm and on track. Presenting even the most complex deals in a simple and down to earth style is a talent not many in the financial world posses … Brad definitely does. On every opportunity I come across that requires special financing, Brad is the first person I contact.”      P. Butler, CEO & President, Spartan Offshore Drilling
