Bellevue, WA (PRWEB) February 14, 2011
Guidant Financial, the leading small business and franchise financing firm, announced today that another rollover industry executive has joined their business development team.
Doug Smith, former Vice President of BeneTrends, has joined Guidant's staff. Just last week Guidant announced that Jerry Darnell, a former executive at MAACO and BeneTrends, had also joined the company. These announcements were preceded by news that Lori Kiser-Block, former President of FranChoice, joined Guidant's Advisory Board.
"We are building an 'A team' that will fuel our accelerated growth going forward," says Guidant CEO David Nilssen. "Jerry and Doug are very big names in the Rollovers as Business Startups industry. We are excited and honored that Doug wanted to join us."
Guidant, the largest provider of Rollovers as Business Startups (ROBS) in the country, continues to see industry growth and increased demand for the company's services. Nilssen cited that, "Regardless of the external economic environment, Guidant had a tremendous 2010, increasing revenue by 30 percent year-over-year - and there are more exciting announcements to come."
"I decided it was time to align myself with the company considered to be in the forefront of the industry - both in terms of the number of deals being brokered, as well as their spotless reputation for compliance," says Smith. They really have raised the standards in terms of creating and maintaining these types of plans."
"My job is going to be strengthening Guidant's partner channel and helping to develop innovative strategies to accomplish that," he adds. "Knowing what all the various ROBS providers can do, I know for a fact that when an industry professional is considering financing options with their prospects, Guidant Financial should undoubtedly be the first call they make."
This week Smith is with the small business and franchise financing firm at the International Franchise Association's Annual Convention in Las Vegas with Guidant, where he looks forward to a positive reception of the news of his new position. "I'm happy to be here," he says.
