FrontWell Capital Partners, a private credit fund that provides transitionary senior debt financing to middle-market companies in the United States and Canada, added Bob Grosskopf to its advisory board. Grosskopf previously served as co-president of the retail disposition practice of an asset disposition and appraisal firm.
“We are thrilled to welcome Bob as a senior advisor to FrontWell,” Patrick Dalton, CEO of FrontWell Capital Partners, said. “I have known and worked with Bob for almost a decade and am confident that he will be a strong addition to our advisory board as we look to expand our lending activity in the retail industry. Bob brings unique relationships and over 30 years of experience managing inventories, which will be critical in structuring creative financing solutions for our clients.”
“I look forward to working with Patrick and the FrontWell advisory board to grow the company’s portfolio of retail clients seeking innovative senior secured financing solutions and excellent client service,” Grosskopf said.
Prior to his position with FrontWell Capital Partners, Grosskopf worked on North American liquidations, including those of Circuit City, Borders Books, Sports Authority and A.C. Moore. Grosskopf designed strategies for store closings, excess or underperforming assets, real estate and brand protection. He was also responsible for signing off on appraisals to provide assurance on recovery values for both retailers and their lenders.
