(Jack) Portman, III is the Vice-Chairman of Portman Holdings, the land and property development company. Jack is responsible for the international development activities of the company. By the 1970’s, Portman Associates had already established its reputation as a transformative architectural firm.  After graduating college, Jack embarked on a global journey where he developed an affinity for SE Asia and envisioned that Portman should pursue international real estate development and property management in the Pacific Rim.  Jack would later established Portman Overseas and today a significant amount of Portman’s business is in the Asian market. Jack Portman’s vision and business acumen has had a major impact on the Portman companies and their international real estate development and management projects for almost 50 years. Jack envisioned the market potential within China and only one week after China opened its doors to trade with America met with Chinese Prime Minister, Deng Xiao Ping to press to become the first foreign real estate development in China. Jack describes the extraordinary challenges that Portman had to surmount to develop Shanghai Centre, one of China’s most successful mixed-use developments.

Develop and deliver a winning value proposition to convince the Chinese National and Shanghai governments to support Portman for the project Align with Kajima, one of Japan’s largest construction companies Develop a consortium of investors (18 banks from 8 countries) whom had wanted to cautiously initiate business within China while at the same time limit their exposure Negotiating with the Bank of China to assume 70% of debt

It makes one wonder if Jack and Portman would be interested in becoming the first foreign real estate developer inside normalized North Korea?

If You Heard Laurel Instead of Yanny It Can Make or Break Your Sales Numbers Infrastructure, Strategy & Sales Training are Key for Increasing Sales.

The recent viral internet sensations, “Do you hear Laurel or Yanny?” illustrates a point that can make the difference in achieving your sales numbers. Why do some people say the hear Laurel and others say they hear Yanny? The answer may have something to do with predisposed perception.

Infrastructure First Our first guest, Emanuel Istudor is the Business Development & IS Manager at Manufactured Assemblies Corporation (MAC). MAC’s is a global leading manufacture of electronic assemblies and wire harnesses used for electrical enclosures such as ATM kiosks.  MAC has plans to increase its annual revenue from $50MM to $100MM by offering new products and services that include; outsourced solutions, contract manufacturing, design engineering, electronic kiosks, digital signs and reselling international products.  Emanuel heard Laurel: Emanuel holds degrees in both Computer Engineering and Business Administration and his predisposed perception understood for MAC to achieve their sales goals, the company needed to ramp up their logistics and manufacturing planning systems and he initiated lean six sigma, technology infrastructure, analytics, CRM, and an enterprise operating system. With MAC’s infrastructure in place to handle the additional throughput, Emanuel is now applying the same disciplined approach for marketing and sales and MAC’s table is set to achieve its sales goals.

Strategy & Sales Training are Key for Increasing Sales Our second guest, Craig Apatov is the Managing Partner and Strategic Marketing Practice Leader for Ascension Growth & Innovation Strategies. Ascension is a management consulting firm that helps clients drive top line growth and improve business performance through strategic analytics, insight mining, marketing optimization, and sales enablement programs.  Craig hears Laurel and Yanni: Craig has worked with blue chip firms, Citibank, Amex and brands, Hunt’s Ketchup, Mattel Hot Wheels. Companies come to Ascension to increase revenue. Craig’s predisposed perception knows management needs to have clearer insight and the sales team can benefit from sales implementation training. Craig gave an example how Ascension’s strategic insight recommended that Brand Bank place ATM kiosks that produced billions of dollars of transactions.

Serendipity:  Emanuel smiled and thanked Craig; MAC manufactured the kiosks for Brand Bank.

On this episode of Capital Club Radio... Michael Flock interviews Tom Simonson at the RMA conference in Las Vegas about  his monumental undertaking, the re-engineering of Bill Bartmann's Commercial Financial Services (CFS) and reviving Bill's dream and Transforming CFS into Merit Financial. Tom is the President and CEO of the Merit Family of Companies, formed in 2017 and comprised of Merit Financial Solutions, Financial Samaritan and Financial Samaritan Lending. Additionally, Tom is President and CEO of CFS2, Inc., the debt buying, servicing and collection R&D company that developed the methods and software now being used by Merit Financial Solutions.

Prior to becoming President and CEO of CFS2 in December 2016, Tom had served as COO of CFS2, a position he has held since August, 2014. Prior to this, Tom was Worldwide General Manager of the Technology, Consulting and Systems Integration Division at Unisys Corporation.

Tom, a graduate of Drexel University, began his career with over 20 years of service at IBM where he held a variety of senior executive positions. He lived for two years in Paris, France while working as an executive at IBM's European headquarters.

Here is a glimpse of what Tom shared in the interview. "I think there was always two sides to the Bill Bartmann story and the controversy around it. On the one hand, you had what you described, which was the scandal and the ultimate demise of CFS. But on the other hand, you had a man who was quite the visionary and could see things that others in the industry or in other industries did not see..." "I learned that you need a precise strategy, that you need maniacal focus, and you need a certain level of cadence and discipline..." "when you're building the business and you're making the level of transformation that we are, you do rely on investors up front and you have to learn to raise money as part of your everyday operating..."

In the U.S., millions of youth and teens (1 out of every 6) are struggling with"food insecurity." That is when a child doesn't have regular access to fresh food or proper nutrition so that their development is severely impacted. Studies show that kids can't learn, grow, or reach their full potential on an empty stomach. That's why-in partnership with Walmart Foundation-the Y has nearly 4,000 sites where children can receive a healthy meal and/or snack. In 2017, the Y served 476,00 kids more than 22,000,000 meals and snacks. WHAT YOU'LL LEARN ABOUT THE Y'S HEALTHY KIDS DAY:

How to enter a special art contest to promote hunger awareness Why summer is a crucial time for children's health Learn about the epidemic of child food insecurity in our country Why child hunger is much worse during the summer

SPOKESPERSON BACKGROUND:  McDaniel has been the Anti-Hunger Initiatives Specialist at the YMCA of the USA (Y-USA) since 2013, working to offer assistance and guidance to local Ys to strengthen child nutrition programs across the country. During her tenure, the Y has expanded its anti-hunger work, increasing number of youth served per year by 131% and number of meals served per year by 165%. In 2016, over 476,000 youth received over 22 million meals at more than 3,900 sites and after-school programs through the Y's Year-Round Food Program. CHILD HUNGER IS A SERIOUS AND OFTEN UNDER-REPORTED PROBLEM IN OUR COUNTRY. IN FACT, ONE IN SIX CHILDREN IN THE U.S. STRUGGLE WITH FOOD INSECURITY. THIS EPIDEMIC OFTEN HITS HARDEST DURING SUMMER MONTHS WHEN KIDS ARE OUT OF SCHOOL.

In their conversation, Dave shares how he developed his business, managed it through tough economic times and is now building the NLEX of the future. Dave has taken NLEX from its start, as a post-RTC sales outlet in the 1980’s, to today, where it is the nation’s leading broker of charged-off credit card and consumer debt accounts. NLEX’s parent company conducted the industry’s first public sale of charge-offs for Bank of America in 1989. With that experience, Dave introduced selling charge-offs from financial institutions by hosting the industry’s first debt sale conference in 1994. Since then, Dave and his team have supervised sales of over 5,000 portfolios with face value of $150 billion in the US and Canada. Dave has a Bachelor of Science Degree in Economics from the University of Illinois and has been in the financial industry for over 25 years. Considered a pioneer in the debt sales industry, he has been a featured speaker at industry conferences and quoted in numerous national media outlets. Here is a glimpse of what Dave shared in the interview. … but most said, “No, we will never sell charge-offs. That’s a crazy idea. Why would we do this? You’re going to sell to someone that we’re going to lose control of, that’s going to violate… going to threaten to break legs and we’re going to be brought into law suits.” … because this was before electronic media. Everything is in hard files. When we were doing a sale back then we would set up a war room of all these files, these cardboard boxes of files that people would come in and go through. … because all we are is a relationship business. We don’t make widgets. There’s nothing we’re buying and selling. It’s a relationship business… Connect with National Loan Exchange, Inc.

So I put it off for another year and another year... I'm in my fortieth year of that gap." "It's never really been about the money... It's about creating something. It's about building something. It's about the success of taking something from nothing and turning it into something from $1 to $65 million.... if I look back, I could have made some decisions that would have actually made me a lot more money, but it probably wouldn't have been as gratifying to me as building a business and creating jobs and creating futures for people."

  :arrow: :arrow: Former Atlanta Mayor Sam Massell Interview on the Buckhead Business Show Sam Massell, Founding President The Buckhead Coalition

Sam Massell, a life-long resident of Atlanta, has had successful careers in real estate brokerage, elected office, the field of tourism, and association management. He spent twenty years as a Realtor, becoming Vice President of Allan-Grayson Realty Company, then one of the city’s largest commercial brokerage firms. During that time, he was elected a charter member of the Atlanta Real Estate Board’s Million Dollar Club and was honored three times with the Cates Trophy by the Georgia Association of Real Estate Boards for creating the “Outstanding Transaction of the Year.” While in real estate, Massell became extremely active in a wide range of civic work, which eventually led to the political arena. He served twenty- two years in elected offices, including eight as President of Atlanta’s Board of Aldermen (now known as the City Council) and four as this city’s Mayor. While holding that office, he was also chosen as President of the 15,000- member National League of Cities. In addition, he has served a four-year term on the Board of the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority, and was a Board Member of the Atlanta Committee for the Olympic Games. Among other achievements, his administration as Mayor is credited with establishing MARTA (Atlanta’s mass transit program), with developing the city’s first enclosed arena (the Omni Coliseum), and with providing the “Five Points” Central City Woodruff Park, all with no call on ad valorem taxes. He also pioneered minority opportunities in city government, appointing the first female to Atlanta’s City Council and the first Blacks as City Department heads. After leaving full-time public service, he entered the tourism business in Buckhead where he operated for thirteen years under the name of Your Travel Agent Sam Massell. He is a Certified Travel Counselor (CTC), and a former President of the Travel Industry Association of Georgia. Mayor Massell now manages a nonprofit civic organization as the 1988 founding President of the Buckhead Coalition. This is a prestigious association of Chief Executive Officers of major businesses in this area on the north side of Atlanta who have pooled their strengths to nurture the quality of life and guide the orderly growth of Buckhead. He has been honored by induction into the Atlanta Convention and Visitors Bureau “Hospitality Hall of Fame”; Georgia Municipal Association “Government Hall of Fame”; Georgia State University Robinson College “Business Hall of Fame”; Georgia Trend Magazine “Most Influential Georgian’s Hall of Fame”, and International Civil Rights King Center “Walk of Fame”. His life is chronicled in a biography (“Play It Again, Sam”) by Charles McNair and Mercer University Press. Topics to Discuss: Why did you decide to do a book - - and why did you choose this author?  How did your childhood days in elementary and high school at Druid Hills shape your civil conscience?  The book tells of a successful college political campaign that sounds unbelievable . . . until we hear the “other side of the story”. Will you elaborate?  You won a lot of top awards in real estate. Tell us about one of which you were particularly proud.  What drew you into the political arena, and if you had the chance to do it all over, would you have pursued a more lucrative business career instead?  I’ve learned that one of your earliest Atlanta political reforms was elimination of something called “Ward Courtesy”, which isn’t in the book. Please explain this initiative.  What do you consider your greatest decision; what do you wish to be your legacy; what was your worst political mistake?  How in the world did you get in the tourism business, and was it satisfying?  You’re credited with nurturing what was thought of as not much more than a sleepy,

List Any Topics You Would Like to Discuss: 1. The Problem we exist to solve Two-thirds of us are unhappy with the thing we spend half of our waking lives doing.

Happy, engaged employees are five times more productive - and four out of five of business leaders believe engaged employees are a key driver of growth.

Human contentment at work is the wicked business problem of our generation.

#2. The Business we are building Marketers have mastered engagement for people as consumers. What if the same techniques could be applied to foster deeper engagement for people as employees?

Local Industries is a Change Marketing consultancy. Put simply, we apply consumer-grade marketing expertise to drive real cultural change inside organizations by focusing on their most important asset. People.

Our current clients are a balanced mix of HR, Tech and Growth leaders at global organizations across CPG, Tech, Travel and non-profit.

Our Product We create Change Marketing programs around three essential human motivations: Growth - translating the company vision into practical ways for employees to grow their skills and career Impact - demonstrating the real positive impact every employees work has on the lives of their customers Relationships - building better ways to create trust, respect, and collaboration between colleagues

Every program starts by building belief across these three areas through storytelling and communications. We then move to practical adoption through training, tools and process design, and finally to ownership, empowering people to become experts in these new ways of work, and to lead and guide others.

#4. Our Ambition To create a new model for employee engagement, based on the happiness, health and belief of it's people. And a new level of investment in employees. Imagine if companies spent even 1-2% of their consumer marketing budget on real employee engagement.

#5. Our Background Neil Bedwell & Andrew Osterday often describe themselves as reformed marketers.

  :arrow: :arrow: Bringing the Platform of Global Real Estate to your Finger Tips on the Rich Hart Show Dr. Dan Nussbaum

Originally from Long Beach NY, Dan was young when his parents passed away, and he lived in 17 places in 9 years while putting himself through college and graduate school with the help of academic scholarships. Dan finished college when he was 20 before going to the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine, and then practiced in Philadelphia for 22 years before deciding to move to California and begin a second career as a licensed investment adviser. As he always had an interest in real estate, Dan decided to also become a licensed California real estate broker and created successful local agencies in Los Angeles. After being contacted from outside the USA about promoting new home developments into the Los Angeles market, Dan became fascinated with the idea of creating The International MLS [IMLS] as an affordable way to bring together agents, brokers, developers, associations, buyers, sellers, and property listings all together into one global marketplace. Dan's vision has been to have all of the listings shared on agent and broker sites all over the world via The IMLS searches, giving agents and brokers the tools to succeed in a competitive global marketplace, with the goal of putting the power of the real estate industry back into the hands of the agents and brokers. As someone who is a licensed broker himself, it is Dan's mission to protect agents so that there will be no advertising of other agents on a personal agent members listing page, that if it is your listing,.. it is your lead, and that there will be no For Sale By Owner listings on The IMLS along with everything posted on The IMLS 10 point Pledge. Dan relocated with The IMLS from Los Angeles to Boca Raton, Florida July 2015. When not working on The IMLS, Dan can be found running, skiing, playing tennis or golf, and maintains an actively engaged life in the Miami-Palm Beach area.

Dr. Bruce Salzinger

Rich Hart (L) Bruce Salzinger (R) An active Doctor of Chiropractic at Chiropractic Healthcare of Buckhead on Pharr Road for 25+ years.  In 2008 Dan came up with a novel concept and vision of the international real estate market and it just made sense to me.  I learned the business best I could and the opportunities it offered.  Having participated nationally and internationally at several real estate shows it confirmed we not only have something unique but extremely valuable to all. My resume below indicates the last 25 of years of chiropractic achievements.  My children have decided to pursue other careers.  I hope to continue helping to launch The IMLS and eventually devote full time to building this vision worldwide. 1970 Graduated Long Beach High School, NY with sports participation on the golf, swim and track teams. 1974 Graduated University of Connecticut, Storrs CT, B.S. Degree with sports participation on the Alpine Downhill Ski Racing and Cross Country teams. Active in karate and judo clubs. 1972-1973 International Business Studies Program, American College of Switzerland, Leysin Switzerland with sports participation on the Alpine Downhill Ski Racing Team and Cross Country Teams. In 1974 Dr. Salzinger experienced a serious skiing related injury. After 3 months of traditional drug and physical therapy treatments for a herniated disc and bilateral severe sciatica he was scheduled for a low back surgery. Fortunately a good friend who was going to New York Chiropractic College at the time suggested he come in for a consultation and exam as "I could always go ahead with the surgery". The explanation of my condition from the chiropractic perspective just made sense. I proceeded with a regimen of regular subluxation based chiropractic adjustments and the rest is so to speak, history. 1974-1989  V.P. National Bolt & Nut Co.

Guest: Keith Meyers On this episode of the Capital Club Radio, Keith Meyers joins chairman and CEO Michael Flock, one of the leading investment bankers in the specialty finance world, to discuss his transition from accounting to investment banking, his work and now management in the debt buying and collection industry and tips to note for those interested in the trends as well as staffing of those in investment banking and debt buying. Biography Mr. Meyers is a Managing Director based in Atlanta and leads KBW’s new Financial Services Group, which serves clients in the specialty finance, mortgage finance, securities, alternative asset management, and financial technology sectors. Mr. Meyers brings more than 17 years of relevant experience serving both strategic and private equity investors in the financial services sector. He comes to KBW from Raymond James where he was a Managing Director in the Financial Services Investment Banking Group. Previously, he served as Head of the Financial Services and Transaction Processing Investment Banking Group at Morgan Keegan & Company. Earlier in his career, he worked in the business advisory and assurance practice at Deloitte and Touche (CPA, inactive). Mr. Meyers has an MBA from the Fuqua School of Business at Duke University and a BSBA from Washington University in Saint Louis. Michael Flock:  How does someone whose working in accounting at Deloitte get into investment banking? How did you make that transition and why? Keith Meyers:  Accounting and audit is a great stepping stone to other things. Accounting is the benchmark of business, being able to understand the financials is critical to what we do in our business. Always thought of it as a place to start my career. Wanted to get into a more proactive role. In accounting, you’re always looking at what you’ve done. You’re not creating value looking forward. I wanted to move into a role to make things happen. Investment banking is very rewarding career because we have changed the position of the companies we work with. As an investment banker, this is a client-service business. We need people who are engaged and care about what our clients think. We’re a cross between consultants, financial advisors, structuring agents and psychologists. [4:37] Psychologists - that’s a new one. Why psychologists? Deals meander many different ways. Many time when we work with clients, this is the biggest transaction of their careers and transformative for the companies we work with. A lot can happen in a deal - positive or negative so a lot of what we do is keep our client’s calm. We joke that deals die 3 times before they close. There’s always times where it’s going to get troubled and you have to make sure you keep everyone’s on board. [5:18] You kind of answered my next question - what are some of the personal traits investment bankers need to be successful? It’s usually financial or business-related but the psychology and keeping everyone calm is surprising. We hire talented people from MBA programs and many will say that we do a lot less modelling and structuring than they expected. It’s more positioning of companies, understanding companies and being able to articulate it to potential investors, private equity firms, debt providers, strategics than it is about brute force financial modelling. We can teach all of that. These kids are book smart, next level is how you interact, tell stories and build rapport and be their advocate positioning against someone that’s trying to get the best deal for themselves. Tread carefully to make sure that you have a client and investor who want to continue to work with one another for 5+ years. [6:52] Really about relationship management as much as it is about numbers. 100% your skill set in investment banking changes as you progress. Starting out, you’re involved in a lot more of the day-to-day numbers and m...

Brand expansion, licensing expert and TEDx speaker Pete Canalichio on Buckhead Business Show

Pete Canalichio Author Author of “Expand Grow Thrive” brand expansion, licensing expert and TEDx speaker.

Before starting his business career, Pete attended the U.S. Naval Academy where he earned a BS in physics. Pete went on to serve in the Navy as an award-winning aviator and instructor pilot, honing his leadership and decision-making skills as commander of a large multi-engine aircraft and 12-member crew during the height of Cold War tensions.

His “crisis-tested leadership skills” were forged not in a battle with the competition or a challenging business turnaround—although he has certainly excelled in those arenas—but in the dark skies above the Pacific Ocean as he flew a military aircraft whose engine had caught on fire.

Clear-headed and decisive under extraordinary circumstances, Pete has applied that same leadership style to every challenge and opportunity he has faced in a distinguished executive career with such firms as Coca-Cola, Newell Rubbermaid and most recently, Licensing Brands, the company he founded in 2009.

Using visualization to make your dreams a reality was the subject of a recent TEDx Talk by Pete Canalichio (MBA ’90), founder, principal owner and president of Licensing Brands, Inc.

“With each dream, I would picture what I wanted, and I would visualize myself in that place,” says Canalichio. “The visualization gave me the clarity I needed, along with the ambition and courage to risk possible failure. As the saying goes, ‘You can’t make a basket if you never take the shot.’” Pete began his licensing career at Coca-Cola in 1997 as the Event Licensing Group Manager where he executed multiple programs in support of:

The 1998 Olympic Winter Games in Nagano, Japan The France 1998 FIFA World Cup (soccer) Major NASCAR events throughout the U.S.

In his second year in the role, he led the group to over $50 million in retail sales earning $3 million in royalty revenue for the company. In 1998, Pete working with the diecast licensee, Action Performance, delivered $30 million in retail sales in commemorating the first ever race between Dale Earnhardt and Dale Earnhardt, Jr. at the Coca-Cola 500 in Tokyo, Japan. This is the largest co-branding program on record for Coca-Cola. His contributions that year earned Pete the Greatest Contribution to the Licensing Department award.

Pete continued his licensing career at Coca-Cola in 2001 as the Licensing & Consumer Activation Director of the 2002 Olympic Winter Games in Salt Lake City, UT. There he directed the development and implementation of all of Coca-Cola’s licensing programs and consumer activation for the Olympic Winter Games. During the seventeen days of the Games Coca-Cola sold over $2 million of licensed product, a 100% increase over the prior Winter Games.

From 2005 to 2007, Pete served as Director of Global Licensing at Newell Rubbermaid for the Rubbermaid brand. In this role, Pete led a 9 member cross-functional team while managing 17 licensees. In just over two years, wholesale sales grew from $30 million to over $70 million and average royalty rates increased by greater than 2% more than doubling royalty revenue. For his achievements, Pete received the MVP Award for stellar contributions to the Global Licensing department in 2006.

In his final role at Newell Rubbermaid, Pete served as the General Manager of CardScan, where he delivered quick wins while rejuvenating the organizational culture.

Before transitioning to marketing and licensing arenas, Pete earned his MBA from the University of North Carolina Kenan-Flagler Business School where he was a Richard H. Jenrette fellow and salutatorian of his class. Upon graduation, Pete was recruited into the global finance unit at Coca-Cola. He rose quickly to managing $32 billion in transactions yearly as Treasury Operations Manager in London and built a strong foundation of busine...

Simply Buckhead Spotlight with Chef Ami Dand of Legendary Events and Chef Shaun Doty The Federal, Chick-a-Biddy and Announcing ATL Taco Shaun Doty, Chef The Federal, Bantam + Biddy, Chick-a-Biddy and Announcing  ATL Taco! Chef Shaun Doty’s career has spanned the globe, but his passion lies in creating simply prepared contemporary fare in Atlanta. His extensive culinary experience is the driving force behind his concepts, Bantam + Biddy and Chick-a-Biddy, fast-casual chicken restaurants featuring local free-range and pastured chicken, and The Federal, an intimate bistro steakhouse in the heart of Midtown Atlanta. Doty began his culinary career at The Grape, a bistro located on lower Greenville in Dallas, TX. After a year at the famed bistro, Doty traveled to Charleston, SC, to attend Johnson and Wales University and worked at Restaurant Million while studying the culinary arts. Upon graduation, Doty moved to Atlanta to work for two years under Chef Guenter Seeger at the Ritz-Carlton, Buckhead. Later, he pursued culinary stints throughout France and Belgium, including experience at the renowned Michelin-starred restaurants Comme Chez Soi, Restaurant Bruno, Restaurant Claude Dupont, Restaurant Barbizon and Restaurant Troisgros. Returning to the United States, Doty worked at Mirabelle in Beaver Creek, CO, and then Savanna’s in South Hampton. He was lured back to Atlanta by Chef Seeger who placed him as the executive chef at the highly celebrated downtown eatery Mumbo Jumbo. Doty’s next project as chef/owner was the launch of MidCity Cuisine, recognized by Atlanta Magazine as Restaurant of the Year 2003. Inspired by the casually sophisticated cafes of Paris, Venice, and Turin, MidCity Cuisine won accolades in national magazines from Gourmet to Bon Appetit for modern interpretations of classic brasserie cuisine. In November of 2005, Doty and his partnership sold MidCity Cuisine and he was recruited by the Manhattan-based Restaurant Associates to be executive chef of Table 1280 at the Woodruff Arts Center. After a successful debut, Doty began to develop a new project inspired by the simple bistro fare that he originally admired at the start of his career. In 2006, Doty opened Shaun’s, a casual neighborhood bistro that was situated in the heart of historic Inman Park. At Shaun’s, Doty spent four years creating ingredient-driven, seasonal and creative American cuisine that earned him praise from critics and diners alike until he closed the restaurant in 2010 to focus on other endeavors. In 2010, Doty founded YEAH! BURGER, an eco-friendly eatery serving customizable burger combinations in Atlanta’s West Midtown and Virginia-Highland neighborhoods. Two years later, he sold his interest in YEAH! Burger to partner with Lance Gummere to open Bantam + Biddy at Ansley Mall in 2012. The restaurant serves a mixture of local free-range and pastured chickens. In addition to top quality chicken, Doty and Gummere have placed a major focus on Bantam + Biddy’s side dishes. The family-friendly restaurant offers Southern favorites as well as sides made with seasonal and local ingredients. In 2013, Doty opened Chick-a-Biddy in Atlantic Station, a modern diner with farm-fresh chicken, creative cocktails and fresh-pressed juices and smoothies. In 2014, Doty opened two more Bantam + Biddy locations at Avalon in Alpharetta and Lenox Square Mall in Buckhead. Both Bantam + Biddy and Chick-a-Biddy offer a number of gluten-free items as well as dishes that can easily be modified for guests with other food allergies. In 2016, Doty and Gummere opened The Federal, named after the nearby Federal Reserve Bank in Midtown, drawing inspiration from their travels around the world, French cuisine and the traditional American steakhouse. Garnering inspiration from his work at previous restaurants such as Shaun’s, MidCity Cuisine and Mumbo Jumbo and culinary stints abroad, Doty considers his dishes at The Federal to be “souvenirs of his life.

Michael Bernstein, Founder MEB Finance Interviewed on Capital Club Radio Michael Bernstein, Chief Executive Officer MEB Finance Solutions LLC

Michael E. Bernstein Mr. Bernstein founded CreditMax, LLC in 2001 and built it into one of the 25 largest debt buyers in the ARM industry by 2005 when the company generated over $60mm in revenue. In 2009, during the height of the macro-economic crisis, Mr. Bernstein made a strategic decision to exit the debt purchasing business and initiate a finance subsidiary, CMAX Finance, LLC to provide capital to underbanked, small to medium sized, debt buyers. In 2010, as part of his growth initiative for the finance business, Mr. Bernstein sold part of CreditMax to outside investors to provide additional capital for infrastructure build-out and to support a larger credit facility. Between 2009 and 2016, Mr. Bernstein originated over $350mm of loans and had his highest production year in 2016, originating over $100mm in loan volume. Mr. Bernstein sold his remaining interest in CMAX in May 2017 and subsequently formed his own company, MEB Finance Solutions LLC, which entered into an exclusive strategic alliance with Flock Specialty Finance, LLC. Mr. Bernstein’s efforts will be focused on growing Flock’s origination volume. In the first 3 months of their alliance, Flock funded over $13mm, $9mm, and $8mm, their largest 3 month funding total since Flock’s inception in 2009.

Prior to founding CreditMax, Mr. Bernstein acquired several mortgage servicing companies and portfolios in the mid to late 1990’s which he then aggregated and sold to one of the largest mortgage originators and servicers in the country. Mr. Bernstein holds a Bachelor of Science degree in finance from Georgetown University.
