"I've worked with Alex for the past seven years and he's helped me on multiple complicated financial projects. I'd describe him as a great financial professional that will add value to any small or medium sized business."
"Alex was our "go to" outsourced finance resource at Sonic while I was there and successfully handled dozens of challenging projects. After I began working for one of Sonic's largest franchisees, we continued to work with Alex and have always found him to be very creative and professional."
"Alex created a very collaborative and trusting environment between all parties (including the franchisor, landlords, and all banks) and ensured beyond the call of duty that the transaction would close smoothly."

"Alex literally saved our business from having to file bankruptcy and us having to lay off hundreds of employees and liquidate. He secured financing, franchisor concessions, and helped us work through store closures where necessary to help create value. Amazing value added."
"Alex was able to manage through multiple difficult projects- in this case several franchisee restructures- at once and triage the issue within days so that we could stabilize and figure out next steps."
