Finding the Right Financial Partner

In honor of National Small Business Month, one of our financial partners, Addition Financial asked us to share some of our business journey and why we chose to work with them as a financial partner. I thought that I would share some of those to show how important it has been in the entrepreneurial journey of Avalon Park Group, and myself, to have a strong financial partner.

Early dreams of cycling glory in the Tour de France gave way to a new path. Instead of chasing after elusive victories on the cycling track, I found my calling as an entrepreneur, and embarked on a journey that has led me around the globe.

The inspiration behind Avalon Park Group’s diverse portfolio of companies stems from the three-decade adventure of building a town from scratch in East Orlando. From real estate ventures to community events, our journey has been fueled by a passion for innovation and a commitment to serving diverse industries on a global scale.

In the pursuit of our business goals, Addition Financial emerged as a steadfast ally, understanding the unique needs of Central Florida’s business landscape. Unlike impersonal banking giants, Addition Financial embodies the essence of local banking, with a team dedicated to fostering community connections and supporting entrepreneurial endeavors.

As with any entrepreneurial journey, challenges have been plentiful, from navigating economic upheavals to weathering global crises. Yet, through perseverance and a steadfast belief in our vision, we have overcome obstacles, emerging stronger and more resilient with each trial.

While growth remains a constant pursuit, our focus does not lie in expansion, but on nurturing the next generation of leaders within our organization. As we pave the way for a seamless transition of leadership, our commitment to local communities and core business values remains unwavering.

Beyond the realm of business, Avalon Park Group remains deeply rooted in the local community, organizing free events and actively participating in charitable endeavors. From supporting healthcare initiatives to serving on advisory boards, our commitment to community engagement is integral to our identity as business leaders.

As we continue to navigate the ever-changing landscape of business, let us remember the importance of finding the right partners who share our values and aspirations.
