At TCF Capital Funding, our cohesive team has worked together for many years, and all we’ve ever done is lower-middle-market leveraged lending. We pride ourselves in the consistency, dependability and responsiveness of providing financing that enables sponsors to buy strong businesses – and make them even stronger.

As the president and the co-founder,
my focus has always been on
growing TCF Capital Funding into the
premier lower-middle-market leverage lender.
We've been focusing on that area our entire careers, and
I think the consistency, and the dependability
of what we bring to the market
really differentiates us.
I'm always amazed by the individuals who have
built these business, and
to listen to them articulate their vision for the company.
Providing financing that enables them
to buy really strong businesses,
and then develop them into even better businesses.
And see that play out in real-time is just a lot of fun.
Our business is really all about responsiveness.
and looking to really be cooperative with our sponsor customers.
There's not a one-structure-fits-all for anything
and you have to be a little bit flexible with their needs.
We're pretty much like a machine over here.
Everyone knows their roles and responsibilities.
It's a group of people that can act quickly, act thoughtfully.
A strong sense of camaraderie, a lot of team
members have been working together for a long time
Just a family. That's the word that comes to mind for me.
I think we're big fans at Capital Funding of not over complicating what we're doing.
Being very transparent, and delivering on what we say we're going to deliver.
