The Dialogue with Suzie Cutshaw
This feature is a question-and-answer session with a new Blount County Chamber member. So here we go with our 18th installment visiting with Suzie Cutshaw, Equipment Finance Consultant of JB&B Capital, LLC
, which helps businesses help businesses grow by providing the capital for necessary new and used equipment through all types of leases and loans.
How did you get started with JB&B Capital? As a part-time summer position when I was a high school English teacher. I fell in love with the businesses in East TN and decided I wanted to do what I could to help them grow.
With that type of background, who has helped you along the way? Bryan Grantham with Regions Equipment Finance. He has always been a go-to mentor for me and assisted whenever I find a customer need that I have not run across before. Great guy and truly a giver.
How does JB&B do what it does? Eighty percent of all businesses finance some of their equipment or furniture and fixtures. So, almost any business except the single-practitioner working from home is a potential client. I have a specialty in transportation financing as well as in manufacturing and warehousing. However, any business that needs to acquire new or used equipment for expansion, renovation, relocation, upgrade, etc., is a great customer. Also, we can provide capital to a business through the purchase of their existing equipment for a loan or lease.
What do you enjoy about working at JB&B Capital? Helping businesses acquire the equipment or capital they need to grow and expand. I love to see a business grow to the point that years after beginning to work with me, I can say, "I knew them when..."
It is an honor to work with JB&B Capital. After being in this same business for 35 years, it is exciting to work with a company that truly cares about the customer from the top down. Helping businesses grow is our mission and our passion.
