William Brewer, Partner at Winston and Strawn, LLP
"Supporting the Foundation is our way to think collectively about the future, whether it is peer education or legislative issues that the Foundation is able to focus on."


David B. Kurzweil, Shareholder; Chair, Atlanta Restructuring & Bankruptcy Practice; Co-Chair, Financial Institutions Practice of Greenberg Traurig LLP
"We have to understand the effects of new laws, the implications of cross-border transactions, and we have to develop uniform laws across countries. The Foundation helps in all of these areas. That’s important. I don’t understand why anyone wouldn’t give."


Patrick Trammell, President & Founder of Southeastern Commercial Finance, LLC

"We’re very excited about the work that the Foundation does. The Foundation provides education, leadership opportunities, and professional growth for our young professionals."


C. Edward Dobbs, Partner at Parker, Hudson, Rainer & Dobbs LLP

"The Foundation is a way to give back to an industry that has really served us well – fed our families, helped our firms, and helped us grow."

Charles JohnsonEF

Charlie Johnson, Foundation Chairman, Secured Finance Foundation
"Education is one of the primary initiatives of Secured Finance Network. Through the Foundation, middle managers and senior leaders in our industry have contributed their time and talent and have devoted endless hours to developing and delivering content, as well as providing education for younger folks coming up in our industry"
