Sometimes, communities find themselves in desperate need of financial resources they simply don’t possess. But when these needs are immediate and severe, something must be done. For example, if a water distribution system fails to provide fresh water, repairing that system presents the only option. And that’s why firms like Gardnyr Michael Capital specialize in providing communities with the monetary relief they need.
The firm was founded over two decades ago in the Orlando suburb of Winter Park, Florida by Jim Pietkiewicz and Pfilip Hunt, both of whom formerly worked for Southeastern Municipal Bonds, Inc. And it was at this first regional firm where the two gained much of their extensive and valuable experience. While Pietkiewicz served as Senior Trader and underwriter for SMB Inc, Hunt was an entrusted research analyst and investment banker.
Although it began as a simple operation, these two men quickly transformed the GMC startup into a leading market player. Shortly after opening their first office in Winter Park, the team opened another office in Flagler Beach. Over the course of two decades, this expansion grew to include offices throughout the south. And today, Gardnyr Michael Capital has offices in Florida, Louisiana, Alabama, Texas and even New York and New Jersey.
Natural disasters, population growth and simple maintenance don’t wait for towns and communities to have their finances in order. But the contractors who the towns employ to fix these problems don’t work for free. And this means that securing the capital needed to finance these projects is absolutely critical.
Gardnyr Michael Capital specializes in financing certain projects by supplying communities with the necessary capital. Like other lenders, the company feeds communities with monetary resources as an investment. Municipal Bonds allow communities to borrow money at historically low interest rates that minimize the burden to the taxpayer. And when projects are completed, it adds value to the community.
The added value in the community enables the town to pay back the loan as well as its interest, and Gardnyr Michael Capital takes pride in the fact that it can contribute to the growth of these communities. To date, the firm has secured over $15 billion in public financings.
