Serving health care, senior living, affordable housing and private education businesses, Lancaster Pollard operates three companies that provide integrated investment banking, mortgage banking and investment advisory services, all headquartered in Columbus. The company also has regional offices in Atlanta, Denver, Kansas City and Austin.
Pollard founded the company in 1988 in Columbus, specializing in financing health care and senior living as a growing, underserved and largely misunderstood market, well before “aging baby boomer” became a common term. As the fledgling investment banking company began to address the needs of providers to grow their services, the company itself grew.
When Green replaced an original founder in 1996, he and Pollard focused on a goal of creating a strong, national company that would continue to serve those who serve others. And through an intense focus on a specialized niche and the use of an entrepreneurial approach to financing, Lancaster Pollard began identifying growth opportunities across the country.
Since then, the company has evolved from a two-person operation into a significant national presence.
Pollard and Green lead by example, focusing on and insisting on the highest business and personal ethics. They guard Lancaster Pollard’s outstanding reputation as its greatest asset, never compromising for financial gain.
Their standards and expectations create a momentum that carries through in each employee, where the personal drive to succeed and company dedication create a self-sustaining environment for growth in both market share and revenue.
The mutual respect among Lancaster Pollard associates creates a work environment where employees push themselves to do their best. Pollard and Green make personal rewards a high priority and have created a culture of learning with training and a company-sponsored MBA program.
Going forward, Pollard and Green anticipate increased competition from national players, but feel they still have the advantage with their history of service and a team experienced in delivering creative solutions.
