Richard L. Billings, Founder and Managing Director
Mr. Billings Founded Clipper Commercial Capital, LLC in 2013, building on a 25-year career in corporate finance, investment banking and business development. Over the course of his career, he has advised companies on capital markets and business development strategies. Mr. Billings brings to the firm’s clients and business associates a breath of experience providing capital solutions for both public and private companies.
Clipper Commercial Capital, LLC is an advisory firm based in greater Boston, providing capital solutions for small and mid-size business nationwide. We work closely with a network of national bank and non-bank financial institutions to offer competitive rates, market knowledge, and specialized lending solutions.
Clipper has a variety of financing alternatives focused on the needs of small, start-up, and emerging businesses. We provide cash flow and working capital facilities, equipment leasing and lending options, and a full range of real estate financing solutions. Our extensive network of lending institutions can provide your business with funding alternatives often not available through your local bank.
Think of Clipper Commercial as a conduit to the capital resources critical for running and growing your business. Many small and emerging businesses don’t qualify for traditional bank financing and aren’t candidates for private equity or venture capital. They essentially fall into a void, and, with the time requirements of managing the day-to-day, most businesspeople do not have the time or resources to fully educate themselves on the available options.
The ultimate exercise in frustration is spending weeks or months walking through the loan application process, only to be rejected and finding yourself back at square one, missing profitable opportunities.
