Terry Luker | Senior Partner
Terry Luker is the founder and Senior Partner of Alternative Capital Funding Solutions. Terry is considered by many to be an expert in deal structure and creative financing options that are not obvious to most. His “can do” attitude and persistence is apparent to all with whom he associates.
With 25 years in the finance community, including 20 years in the automobile industry, Terry is familiar with the financing and/or refinancing of almost every aspect of different industries. Experience with real estate acquisition, facilities construction, inventory floor plans, and directing finance departments has prepared Terry for the diverse needs of commercial funding challenges we face every day.
He truly believes that all business owners should have the opportunity to pursue their dreams and have access to the capital needed to support their businesses. Trouble with access to capital, many times, is a lack of acceptable structure, presentation, and/or aggressive representation by a professional broker on the behalf of the client.
Terry’s philosophy is, “If a project is not a deal, look for a solution to make it happen.” These words are a mission statement for his sales team, as well as his credit team. He holds them accountable to that philosophy every day.
Terry was awarded the 2014 “Rookie of the Year” award by the National Alliance of Commercial Loan Brokers in its first year, and followed that up by being recognized as the 2016 “Commercial Loan Broker of the Year”.
Terry resides in Franklin, TN. For more information on why businesses need a commercial loan broker, check out Terry’s new book entitled, “Yes! How to Get the Funding You Need for Your Business.”
