Its been said that experience is the best shaper of our lives. When I think back on the myriad encounters thus far in my life, I clearly understand why it was a must to establish this company in an effort to assist others in the areas of construction and commercial bonding. Being able to assist a client through the maze of not only surety and bonds but business organization and structure is quite rewarding.
As a former Ironworker, I was active in the construction trade across the United States and in South America. Years of involvement in this industry taught me the importance of construction company owners having the ability to obtain adequate construction financing, surety, and bond guarantees. I grew to know many craftsmen who could do the work but lacked the ability to obtain adequate bonding and or financing. Without this ability many of these artisans eventually fell by the wayside.
Years later, working for the City of Buffalo, New York as Vice President of its' Buffalo Economic Renaissance Corporation, I had the responsibility of assisting in the development of all small businesses with special emphasis on Women/Minoritys. I quickly became aware of just how difficult the process of obtaining bonding, financing and insurance really was. Since 911 the process has become even more difficult with surety/bonding companies taking even harder looks at construction companies. It is not at all unusual for companies that have had the ability of obtaining bonding for years to be turned down in todays climate.
