Summarized by Roger wohlner
We recently had the opportunity to chat with Dustin Mangone, Managing Partner and Director of PPC LOAN, a member of theThinkAdvisor Luminaries class of 2021.
PPC LOAN won an award in the Products, Programs and Services – Partnerships and Advisory Groups category, in the broader category of Dealmaking and Growth Luminaries.
Dustin explained to us that the firm was started by a group of former commercial bankers in the 1990s and initially funded a number of dental and veterinary practices. They have always focused on the service sector.
He said the company started developing financing and lending solutions for independent consulting firms during the period 2005-2006. At the time, there was no specialized program to meet the specialized needs of consulting firms, no lender focused on this space.
Mangone emphasized that PPC LOAN is structured to be a consistent source of long-term capital and an ongoing partner for the consulting firms they work with. When PPC LOAN started working with financial advisory forms, most of the loans they made were to finance the acquisition of other financial advisory firms and practices.
