Roger Allen joined Alterna Capital Solutions’ executive team as chief operating officer based in Winter Park, FL. Allen will focus on expanding and leading the underwriting, operations and client management departments for Alterna.

Before joining Alterna, in 2020, Allen launched a consulting practice, Roger Allen Consulting, leveraging his more than 30 years of experience to assist banks and alternative lenders in developing and implementing process improvements aimed at expanding services, maximizing efficiency and customizing specialty finance and working capital solutions.

“I’m very pleased to be working with Roger again to meet the extraordinary demand for the kind of flexible financing partnerships we know are critical to a large section of the SME marketplace,” Stan Carpenter, founder and president of Alterna Capital Solutions, said. “We’ve done this before together. We know how to build relationships, customize financing structures for growth capital, and support a rapidly growing and underserved portion of the SME market. I’m honored to have someone of Roger’s caliber and experience join an already high-caliber Alterna team.”

“Alterna has demonstrated tremendous growth during its first three years,” Allen said. “I’m looking forward to working with Stan again, along with the entire Alterna team, and I’m eager to help bring their expertise and proven methods to even more small businesses across the country.”
