“I have had the pleasure of working with Mike on several business projects since 2011. Our initial project was to obtain financing and develop a strong banking relationship. Mike negotiated with the bank and secured both business and residential financing. His knowledge, expertise and professionalism were invaluable in achieving our goals. We continued with several other projects, which included the negotiation and purchase of our building, purchase of capital equipment, and longer term business strategies. His optimism and “can do” attitude were all essential in handling tough, complex transactions.
In my twenty-three years with my company, having used several other business advisors and consultants, I found Mike’s contribution far surpassed any others. He is absolutely trustworthy and he delivers on commitments. I truly believe that Mike would bring success to any organization and prove to be a valuable contributing member.”
“I was referred to New Direction Capital by a family friend. For the past 10 years we have been leasing a large location for our business. Our location is strategically important to our business and is needed for the continued growth. New Direction Capital worked with us to build a plan to save funds for a down payment and also help us with financial targets so our financials would be in good shape when it was time to finance. About a year after working with New Direction Capital, our building’s owner approached us about purchasing the building. New Direction Capital was able to work through the best financing for our situation.
I now own the building, have a working line of credit for the slow months and could not be happier. There was a tremendous amount of information and business planning that was needed. New Direction Capital made this process easy for us and saved us tons of time and effort. They also worked on our behalf to make sure we received the best pricing with vendors and low cost financing. These results do not do justice to the level of support I received from NDC during this time. Mike was there every step of the way to ensure a smooth process, often available after hours to ease my concerns. I would highly recommend New Direction Capital for your business ventures. Their dedication and experience make the process seamless. On top of that, they are very nice and kind people."
“You will not be disappointed using NDC for all of your financial services needs. Not only are they experts, but they also take the extra steps necessary to complete a project. You will never here them say, “no”, or “can’t be done”. They leave no stone unturned. If you want results, NDC is your answer.”
“I have known Mike for many years as a member and now President of the Fox School of Business Alumni Association at Temple University. This is an all volunteer group that is charged with driving activities in support of the University Development Office and the overall growth plans for the Dean of the School of Business. During the time I have known Mike, he has always come across as both dedicated and focused and could always be counted on to go the extra mile for people. He is willing to work with both the students and staff on almost any project that arises, and his great reputation flows out to the business community as well. He is one of the good guys and I would strongly recommend him to your business!”
“In my capacity as Dean of the Fox School of Business, I have known Mike for over twelve years. His ascendancy to the presidency of our alumni association at the business school, after nearly eleven years of involvement with the business school, is testimony to his hard work, innate ability to lead, and especially his vision for the future.
Mike took the alumni association through a successful strategic planning process of his initiative and has spoken at countless events, on his own time, to assist faculty and students of the school. Our internship and placement program is stronger as a result of work done by Mike and his board. More recently, Mike has demonstrated strong collaboration with our development office in conceiving a real estate symposium at the Union League in Philadelphia. Because of the collaboration on speakers and topics, this symposium will be the best ever, and will draw from across the real estate community in Philadelphia.
I can strongly commend Mike Breeze to anyone seeking a seasoned professional who possesses both a firm grasp strategy and vision as well as the skills to follow-through and execute in a spirit of collaboration.”
“Mike has a real talent, a knack for acquiring clients, then building meaningful relationships and finally delivering on his promises. This is a rare quality in today’s commodity approach to doing business. When you are a unique entity facing challenges, Mike is the person to sift through countless details, spend literally hundreds of hours working on behalf of his client and then executing effective plans of re-capitalization. He easily grasps the details of diverse businesses, and innately has a feel for the economic situation of many different business models.
Mike easily works with professionals attached to a business such as attorneys, accountants, and outside business consultants to put together a team. This team approach creates a “can do” environment playing from a position of strength and new opportunity. He can really find the true value of a business, so that the less creative financial institutions see the vision with him.”
“Mike excels in building businesses. He has a keen understanding of business systems and is skilled at bringing people and resources together toward the goals of the business and service to the customer. He is good at building teams and is gifted at recruiting staff, training them, and spending time with them to develop their talents.
I go to Mike for strategic business advice on financing and capital-raising for our businesses, and also on an emerging-growth company I own. His knowledge and advice in this area have helped me secure capital and also attain capital at lower costs. Mike is without question one of the brightest and most effective professionals I have met in my career.”
