Originally established in Rockford, IL in 1975, The Ashdale Group, Inc.
(then Brokers Mortgage Corporation) offered financial intermediation assistance. As the
name changed and the breadth of the Company's offerings grew, Ashdale became known as a
facilitator for resource procurement nationwide. In 1996-1997 Ashdale's Illinois presence
was replaced with a new presence in Florida. Led by the same executive Principals George
R. Boraiko and Barbara B. Schweppe, The Ashdale Group, Inc.'s Florida operations strive
to offer even more. Beyond the conventional consulting, intermediation and process
improvement services, we seek to identify and develop your Company's unique
Equity Growth Strategy.
What is equity? How can a Company use capital stock to augment or replace
conventional bank financing? What does "full disclosure" mean, and how should a Company
keep investors properly informed? Communicating success is easy; how do we communicate
turbulence without implying weakness?
Equity Growth Pyramid = Turbulence; Strategically Optimized
Strategy, Communications and the optimization of a Capital Integration Strategy; that's
what you can expect from Ashdale's Equity Growth Assistance Program.
Whether as Coach, Consultant, Resource Intermediary or Communications Liaison, Ashdale's
objective is the profitable discovery, alignment and facilitation of our client's
operational success and Equity Growth Proposition.
