Meet Our Chairman

Steven Mandis

Our company is proud to be led by Steven Mandis who possesses extensive experience in finance. He gained invaluable experience as a banker (Mergers & Acquisitions Department at Goldman Sachs, special assistant to the President of Goldman Sachs, and Chief of Staff to the President of Citigroup), a management consultant (Senior Advisor to McKinsey & Co.) and an investor (Portfolio Manager at Goldman Sachs in Proprietary Trading).

The son of Greek immigrants, Mr. Mandis received the Ellis Island Medal of Honor, an award presented annually to a group of distinguished American citizens who are the children or grandchildren of immigrants and exemplify a life dedicated to community service. He earned his bachelor's degree from The University of Chicago and two master's degrees and a Ph.D. from Columbia University. He currently teaches at Columbia University Business School as an associate adjunct professor.

Our Name

Our Chairman's parents are from Kalamata, Greece. Kalamata is famous for its delicious olives. Kalamata olives are almond-shaped, plump and dark purple. Kalamata olives cannot be harvested when they are green and must be hand-picked when they are black in order to avoid bruising.

In addition to the family connection to Kalamata, the concept of a financing source utilizing a personal touch and extending an olive branch to small businesses seems to be a good contrast to the obstacles from most capital sources.
