Fred Nort

Fred is a small business entrepreneur. He has been both an investor in start-up businesses as well as having started, operated and sold several companies. His experiences have given CM Lenders real world insight into the problems that small business owners face when looking for money to start and grow.

Often, CM Lenders encounters business owners that need creative, alternative solutions to finance operations.
