THE GCF GROUP
Our Founder, David Pokorny, has been in the finance & real estate industry for 17 years with 9 of that being in community banking. He has underwritten and funded over $200,000,000 in loans and understands how to navigate the local credit markets to provide the necessary financing for small business owners and real estate investors. Historically the majority of banks were community banks that lived to serve the financial needs of their immediate surrounding business community. Over the past 50 years through major economic events, significant legislative changes and consolidation of financial institutions to fuel growth & efficiency, the landscape of business banking has changed drastically. Banks still want to have a personal connection with their customers but find it simply impossible due to the size of their organization.
However, there are still a select few regional community banks with local bankers that have the ability and desire to have a personal relationship with their clients. They will take the time to get to know you and your business personally to understand your banking needs. The right banker will be your advocate internally to suggest and obtain approval for the appropriate financial tools from their senior leadership for your use. Having access to this type of banking relationship can significantly accelerate the growth of your business. At The GCF Group, we utilize our banking knowledge and relationships to connect our clients to this valuable resource of a relationship with an experienced personal banker.
