Mr. McClanahan has been in the financial services business for 19 years. After receiving his life/health insurance license from the state of California, he began marketing benefit packages, including health plans, to small businesses for the NASE in 1993. After six months he left NASE to become an independent agent, preferring to work directly for the client, not the insurance carrier. Since then, he has added his property/casualty license, and general securities Series 7 and investment adviser representative Series 63 licenses as well.
"We are delighted to have Bruce join our company," said Neil Thompson, an RFP vice president. "With his outstanding background, we believe he can significantly expand the RFP footprint in his market area.
Explaining the paradigm shift, RFP President Dr. Hunter Elam stated that "Traditional lending sources have left the market and private lenders such as private equity firms and wealthy individuals, with billions of dollars to invest, are moving aggressively to fill the vacuum left by conventional lenders in funding projects in untapped commercial markets."
RFP's mission is to help small to medium sized businesses obtain capital. Since traditional lending sources cannot fulfill the need of these businesses to grow, RFP offers funding solutions for a variety of needs – to help them grow their business, obtain financing for customers including less than prime credit, lease equipment, purchase/refinance commercial property and much more.
“Our focus is to transform the market's access to capital by leveraging our relationship with global funding sources,” said Dr. Elam. He pointed out that the company now has many associates throughout the nation and the next step in the future of funding is to open funding centers in all major metropolitan areas in the U.S so that the company can bring global capital to main street.
“As an adviser with the main focus of my practice on small business owners and retirees, I am extremely excited to enter this relationship with RFP,” Mr. McClanahan stated. “It gives me a whole new way to help my clients, as the banks have stopped lending and capital needs are something virtually all of my clients are concerned about. I look forward to an extremely beneficial relationship with RFP going forward.”
RFP is actively seeking clients who need funding as well as seasoned executives and experienced professionals who are interested in opening and developing new markets as well as servicing a rapidly growing customer base on a local, regional, and national scale.
