Matrix Funding Corporation

Created Matrix Equipment Finance, merged it with Matrix Funding Corporation, and exited via the UniCapital NYSE IPO in a half cash half stock transaction. Was one of 25 selling shareholders who walked the floor of the NYSE on IPO day.


Repurchased Matrix Funding Corporation from UniCapital, renamed it Applied Financial, rehired most of the employees, and built the business into an eight figure EBITDA operation with a $250MM footprint. Negotiated a $25MM operating line with Wells Fargo Bank, making Applied Financial one of the larger Wells Fargo exposures in the intermountain west. Sold Applied Financial to Marquette Financial Companies, a federally regulated bank holding company, in August 2006 in an all cash transaction. Retired from the leasing industry in July 2010.
