Frank Bromley founded Eclipse Capital Group in 1997 as a commercial real estate finance firm. The company achieved rapid growth as it added business lines of credit, equipment lending, and other forms of corporate financing to its portfolio. Bromley and his team quickly developed an extensive lender base – a financing network including thousands of lenders throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe. The firm has also proved itself adept, as circumstances dictated, at effectively and efficiently restructuring debt and finding appropriate refinancing partners for its clients.
Since 1997, Sylvan Lake-based Eclipse Capital Group has specialized in transactions that not only help bankers reach their goals but that also benefit the bank’s clients in the process. Originally founded by CEO Frank Bromley as a commercial real estate finance broker, Eclipse quickly became involved in business lines of credit, equipment lending, and other forms of corporate growth financing as well. And while it proved itself adept at restructuring a client’s debt and taking other strategic actions, when needed, before finding appropriate refinancing partners, Eclipse also developed an extensive lender base, which over the years it has broadened into a financing network of thousands of lenders throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe. And many new lenders continue to seek out Eclipse to join an expanding network of alternative lending sources participating in profit-producing, win-win financing opportunities.
Frank Bromley is reclining in a cushioned chair behind an oval-shaped glass table at Eclipse Capital Group’s Sylvan Lake offices. The building’s exterior, cloaked in greenery and set back from the corner of Orchard Lake Road and Middlebelt, is nearly hidden from view. Inside, its modern furnishings are elegant yet understated, mixing wood, glass, and other tasteful touches. But while the setting is serene, the business under discussion between Bromley, Eclipse’s Principal, and Katie Katzman, one of Eclipse’s Banking Relations Officers, is often transacted under stressful circumstances. “We’re meeting people in many cases for the first time while their life’s work is about to go down the drain,” Bromley says.
