Scott Fanelli

Mark Twain once said, “thunder is impressive, but it is lightning that does the work.”  Scott has applied this philosophy to helping businesses, with an emphasis in the healthcare and insurance industries, secure financing for over 20 years so it’s not exactly surprising that he’s actually been struck by lightning! Thorough communication, accessibility, smart solutions, and a good dose of tenacity from application through closing are what Scott’s clients can expect from him. When he’s not working with clients, Scott enjoys boating, golfing, soccer, being a #girldad, and cheering on his Steelers!
