Nick Chapman

Nick spent 15 years in the lending side of banking. Originally focusing on residential mortgages but as a result of the financial collapse in 2008, he transitioned to business banking and was recruited to work for one of the largest privately held lenders in the country.

Our goal is to serve our community of students with education about the different lending options available in the market along with providing financing for every deal possible.
