The business owner, Jeff Buckner, came to First National Bank Small Business Finance with the goal of purchasing Digital Designs from a senior partner to become the sole owner of the company. The senior partner was ready to step out into the next chapter of his life and wanted to fully transfer ownership to Jeff Buckner. After eight months of searching for a lender that could get the deal done, Buckner was referred to First National Bank Small Business Finace through a third party. FNB's expertise in creating financing solutions that work for our Business Partners led to a successful closing, and left Jeff Buckner in a great position to take ownership of Digital Designs.
Buckner had this to say about working with our team:
“Before starting this process, I knew nothing about SBA loans – this was certainly a learning opportunity for me! The folks at First National Bank were fantastic. The team was creative, helpful, and always available to answer any questions that I had. As a digital service provider, our business fits a different profile than brick-and-mortar shops; however, FNB Small Business Finance was able to provide an excellent valuation on our intellectual property, and we are very satisfied with the results! We appreciate the hard work everyone that helped us at First National Bank – thank you!”
Since closing this loan in 2016, Jeff Buckner has successfully transitioned into his role as the sole business owner of Digital Designs. We look forward to watching Digital Designs grow and succeed!
