1-on-1 with Ryan Howard
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.
What is your personal 2018 goal for yourself?
Ryan: $100+ million in originations
