Mr. Scriven’s assignments have ranged from large, strong credit cities to non-rated land-secured transactions. He takes special care to conduct thorough due diligence to fully understand a client’s goals, as well as all opportunities and constraints inherent in a project. This approach enables him to provide critical advice to clients and to maximize opportunities to best “fit” (or sometimes rule out) a solution and then, importantly, effectively implement that solution. Additionally, Eric provides support to his clients by helping them optimally position their finances to meet their goals, with an emphasis upon best-practices forecasting methods for capital planning, budgeting and investment.
