Becker Underwood, Inc.

“At our initial meeting with Century Park Capital, they told us that they invested in individuals, collaborating with management to build businesses. They did not pretend to be experts in our industry, but did promise to provide us with capital and guidance. They impressed us with their honest, down-to-earth approach. After spending four years with them as our equity partner, we were even more impressed.”
