Fountainhead Commercial Capital recently acquired a new headquarters building to anchor its national lending operation in Orlando, Florida.

Fountainhead purchased the 4,000-sf building located at 3216 W. Lake Mary Blvd. from Computech City. Fountainhead specializes in commercial real estate financing for small businesses and is a recognized national leader with the SBA 504 Loan Program.

"To purchase our building is almost a requirement for a company like Fountainhead," said Chris Hurn, CEO of Fountainhead. "We continually advocate that executives and entrepreneurs should own their company's underlying commercial real estate as a wealth creation strategy. It is one of the hallmarks of our business model, so we were anxious to practice what we preach."

The new building, fronting a busy roadway in the North Orlando enclave of Lake Mary, features built-in Herman Miller workstations and an array of 40 solar panels on the roof which will significantly reduce energy usage and cooling costs.

According to Hurn, more than anything else, the new building enables Fountainhead to model the advice it offers for clients. He also noted that nearly all Fountainhead employees have an ownership stake in the building.

"We aggressively pursue wealth creation strategies for our clients," said Hurn. "Owning your company's building is part of the American dream, and we are now proud to be living it as well."
