Our founder, Danny F. Dukes, has spent over 30 years in the financial institution, and mortgage industries. Danny understands, first hand, the impact of changes that have occurred in these industries over this time period and most importantly, how these changes now impact customers; especially business owners' ability to obtain capital and loans that they need to operate and grow their companies.
