How to Finance Expansion

Whether you’re a fast-growing, direct-to-consumer beauty brand that just scored its dream retailer, or an established company ready to expand, there are financial options available that don’t require securing outside investors, or worse yet, passing on the opportunity for growth.

It’s hard enough for beauty executives to run the day-to-day business without having to balance production schedules, cash flow cycles and finances. The situation is exacerbated in beauty where multiple parties are involved, from ingredient vendors to packaging suppliers to product fillers. But you don’t have to face these challenges alone.

Founded in 1938, family owned Rosenthal & Rosenthal, the largest privately-held factor and finance company in the U.S., has financed countless businesses by providing working capital and a range of resources. Rosenthal’s services—used alone or in tandem with one another—provide the flexibility and stability businesses need to fuel long-term growth.

Rosenthal & FIIT2ATEE held inaugural health fair for employees!

On March 13th, In the effort to allow employees to explore healthy living choices, we partnered with Theo Mccann and FIIT2ATEE to hold our inaugural health fair: New Year New You! Outside vendors were brought in and employees had the opportunity to speak with industry professionals about any health questions or concerns they may have. Among these health care professionals was a personal trainer, physical therapist, acupuncturist, and podiatrist. There was also the opportunity for employees to receive a 10 minute message, which proved to be quite the hit! And what is a health fair without a free healthy lunch and fresh pressed juices! The fair proved to be a success and we look forward to our next one in the fall!

Endurance Athletes In Our Midst

BY BRIAN RESUTEK

Navigating the fields of the commercial finance world is challenging on a daily basis. Trying to also incorporate endurance sports with commercial finance might initially read like the definition of counter-productivity; however, for a number of our colleagues, this combination is a daily and successful business practice. The Secured Lender looked across the industry to gain a bit more understanding about the "how and why" commercial finance professionals partake in endurance-related sports while also staying fit in the world of commercial finance.
