Tim Shackelford had been the General Manager of The Contents Team for several years when the opportunity to purchase the business came about. Together with his wife Shannon, they began to pursue funding to become the owners of The Contents Team. They consulted a financial advisor, who recommended an SBA loan and referred the husband-and-wife team to one of our experienced Business Development Officers. With his exceptional knowledge of SBA lending, he put together a successful package for a 7(a) business acquisition loan.

The Shackelfords had this to say about their experience working with the BDO:

He was an excellent business partner. We went into this process not knowing anything about SBA loans, so we were glad to have an experienced lender like him on our side. He and his assistant Cora came out to tour our facility, took us out to lunch, and explained everything that we would need to bring to the deal. It was a little overwhelming at first, but he was with us every step of the way. Anytime we had a question, he was there to answer – even after our loan closed. We would highly recommend the BDO and his team to anyone that needs an SBA loan!

After closing on the loan, Tim and Shannon moved into their roles as owners of The Contents Team – and business is booming! We look forward to seeing what the future brings for our partners at The Contents Team.
