Commercial and specialty finance veterans Mark Seigel, Evan Nadler and Tony Liobis launched Crown Partners, an independent advisory firm specializing in $5 million to $75 million senior credit facilities and loan products for U.S. companies that are in need of incremental working capital, executing an acquisition or undergoing a turnaround.

Crown’s principals previously led Veritas Financial Partners, a private equity-sponsored direct lender providing senior secured loans, including working capital credit facilities, bridge real estate loans, factoring and other structured financings, and financial asset loans. Their prior professional experience includes working within banking institutions, family offices and specialty finance companies. In aggregate, they have closed in excess of $5.3 billion of debt transactions across more than 450 borrowers, representing more than 75 years of combined experience.

“Together, we founded Crown Partners under three guiding principles. First, we believe we can provide high impact solutions to sponsors and entrepreneurs in the opaque and often difficult-to-navigate credit markets. Second, we wanted to create a firm with a culture of execution that would allow us to attract and work with the most talented people in our industry. And lastly, we all enjoyed working together for many years and believe that combining our individual skill sets provides an extensive industry knowledge base through a single resource,” Seigel, Nadler and Liobis said in a joint statement.
