Here’s what our new director of operations Nicholas Quintillan had to say about his first week!
Recently I reconnected with a childhood friend that I have known for over twenty years. We
grew up in the same community and shared a common social circle. In catching up after all
these years, we were embroiled in a deep discussion about our current work positions and
career paths. My future colleague explained that she has been working with a factoring
company, located in our home town of Calgary, for the past three years, which was founded
in 2008. High-level, she explained the world of factoring, and generally speaking, the
principles and values of the company which piqued my interest.
Several weeks later, in a further discussion about careers, she mentioned that if I was
interested, I should forward my resume and information onto her employer, Gerry. He
reached out almost immediately and we began touching base every other day to explore
more about each other. Two weeks later, Gerry invited me to officially join the team at the
Calgary based office to learn more about the organization as well as to participate in some
face to face training.
I arrived bright and early on Monday morning, eager to learn more about the world of
factoring and especially Capital Now. The office was located in a beautifully converted
townhouse. I was happily introduced to the entire team and was thrilled to learn that the
core team had been working together for quite some time. The atmosphere in the office was
warm and welcoming and you could feel the camaraderie instantly.
I began shadowing several key individuals from the team, exploring their day-to-day
operations as well as spending time with the owners and understanding their ultimate
vision. Gerry and Natalie, the owners of Capital Now, are both passionate individuals with a
clear vision in helping their peers reach their goals. With over thirty years of combined
experience in executive level leadership, sales, mortgages and finance, both owners have
been intimately involved in all areas of the factoring business, including; administration,
accounting, client-retention, collections, funding, underwriting, and investor relations. Gerry
and Natalie are both University graduates and have been individually certified as “Factoring
Account Executive” by the prestigious International Factoring Association. They honed their
vision in helping others achieve their goals based on their own experience as business
owners and clearly understanding the opportunity for growth, in particular, the need for
instant access to capital.
Both owners have been instrumental in developing industry specific software, customer
service standards, best practices, and automating banking software to name a few.
Capital Now prides itself on conducting business based on character, while maintaining a
strong foundation based on facts and common sense. Capital Now is a principle-based
lender that will help you streamline operations and gain access to the capital you need to
grow your business. Capital Now has itself grown recently, and as of 2018, launched its U.S.
My first week was interactive, educational and highly insightful. I’m glad to have joined an
organization that shares my core values in helping others in achieving their goals.
