It’s all about togetherness.
As Senior Vice President Brent Holman-Gomez puts it, familiarity breeds contentment at Chicago-based Cambridge Realty Capital Companies.
“We hear it all the time. Clients comment on how knowledgeable, responsive and together our staff appears to be. One reason is because we’ve been working together at this for a long time,” he said, adding:
“Familiarity is the glue that has helped the company bond as a tight-knit organization of dedicated senior housing/healthcare funding specialists.”
Mr. Holman-Gomez points out that many of the company’s top executives joined the firm as college interns and have never worked elsewhere. He joined the internship program about 20 years ago, at the time senior management was making a decision to focus exclusively on funding senior housing/healthcare properties.
“Since then the business has gone on to close transactions totaling more than $4.5 billion and has emerged as one of the nation’s leading senior housing/healthcare lenders,” he says.
“The company’s training program includes exposure to all facets of managing and marketing a small, highly-focused and specialized entrepreneurial business. The idea is to maintain a responsive, customer-centered culture.
““The dedication of our staff says a lot about who we are as a corporate entity.”
Mr. Holman-Gomez makes the point that members of the Cambridge staff have grown to value each other as people. The company routinely plans lunches and other social outings that enable the staff to enjoy each other’s company in a relaxed social setting, he said.
