How long have you been working at Trez Forman Capital?

Ryan: Approximately one year 

 ​​

What is the best part of your job?

Ryan: The people at Trez Forman (and Trez Capital) are intelligent, professional, and enjoyable to work with. Also, we offer a financial product that fills a void in the marketplace and that is in high demand.

 

What is the biggest challenge you've faced?

Ryan: The construction/development deals we work on are at times very complex and sometimes can take awhile to close while we wait for the borrower to complete their pre-development process.

What is your most notable accomplishment?

Ryan: I have been able to leverage my national relationships and originate Trez Forman’s first two deals outside of Florida, with many more to come.

What's your advice for people looking to break into the industry? 

 Ryan: Utilize your professional network and don’t be afraid to ask for help. Most people enjoy helping young professionals start their career.  Once you land your first job, even if it means longer hours, try to work on as many different kinds of projects as possible so you can add value in multiple ways in the future.

1-on-1 Interview With Trez Forman Employee Cameron Mitchell

EMPLOYEE SPOTLIGHT: Cameron Mitchell

 

What have you learned at Trez Forman thus far? I’ve learned a whole lot about the industry. I basically started at the ground floor. Working directly under Brett Forman gives me the opportunity to soak up knowledge and ask any questions I have.

 

What have you overcome? There was a large learning curve when I first started. It’s a fast-paced company and my initial lack of industry knowledge was a challenge.

 

What are you looking forward to in 2018? Growth in our business: raising more capital, lending more capital, and becoming more efficient as we enter our second full year with Trez Capital.

 

What's the best thing about working at Trez Forman? The camaraderie. We have a smaller office in Florida compared to our other Trez offices and this makes us tight. We also have a good connection between our offices because of video conferencing technology.
