Commercial Funding Partners (CFP) is not simply in the business of leasing equipment. “Ultimately we want other businesses to expand,” explained Buddy Zarbock, CFP’s vice president. “We value relationships and grow with our customers.”
The group has been in business since 1987 and credits its longevity largely to taking such good care of customers. CFP fosters loyalty through competitive and sometimes creative funding, and with structured interest rates that can decrease with repeat transactions.
With this mantra, CFP has an increasing number of repeat customers, including a recent $1.5 million east-coast manufacturing equipment capital lease on a fifth schedule.
“Too often leasing companies secure a one-time transaction,” Zarbock commented. “It says a lot about CFP that this is our fifth one with this particular customer.”
For an exclusive duck hunting lodge, power loss is not an option. Conventional funding for their large-ticket lease on massive backup generators wasn’t either until Commercial Funding Partners (CFP) stepped in.
With the resort’s remote location, constant power isn’t always reliable, so the backup generators were a must. “I’m not all that interested in having 300 customers all with guns in their hands when the power’s out,” said its owner.
Although this cushy resort, complete with lodges, a restaurant, and a pro shop, attracts people from all over the world, from locals to oil sheiks, there was a funding roadblock when it came to obtaining the generators. The company was a startup—enough to give pause to traditional lenders bound by regulations.
“We came up with an innovative structure that allowed us to take a $400,000 transaction that wasn’t bankable and got it secured with multiple strong guarantors,” remarked CFP Credit Manager Derek Turley.
CFP’s ingenious team is constantly finding ways around traditional funding. Where most banks want to see a track record that spans a number of years, CFP can work with a lessee who has only a handful of months under their belt, often securing a lease deal that actually saves the client money over purchasing equipment outright.

A company in the aircraft industry has come back to CFP for a third schedule. CFP was able to fund a 48-month operating lease for $781K for a jet engine. Additionally, the customer will have an increase of $10K per month in net revenue after the lease payment.
