Reaching Milestones – we appreciate you
“25 years of making business, 25 years of making history, 25 years of making memories, and 25 years of making friends – both in and out of the office.”
When we opened our doors in 1996, there were two of us with a determined vision to be a relationally focused company in a traditionally transactional industry. Our mission was to do what we enjoyed and to do it the right way – developing strong relationships to foster success and to do business the right way in providing capital with a spirit of integrity, commitment, and excellence.
As we celebrate Northland Capital’s 25th anniversary this year, our mission, foundation, and faith remains unchanged. Above all, this milestone is a celebration of you – the customers, partners, and employees we have worked with for over two decades. We would not be able to achieve success without you. Twenty-five years ago, our goal was to derive 10% of new business from existing customers. Today, 47% of new business volume comes from loyal customers. And that proves our mission is working. We are enabling customers to secure capital to improve their success, developing strong partnerships, and retaining committed employees.
I want to use this marker year as an opportunity to thank you for the trust you have placed in us. For that I am humbled and grateful. I look forward to continuing to grow together, as you continue to be the cornerstone of our business.
Wishing you the best in 2021 and beyond,
Willis Kleinjan – CEO & FounderView All News & Views
