Lauren Fernandez/Origin Development Group Founding Partner

Lauren is the founder of The Fernandez Company, the culmination of over a decade of practice as a trusted brand consultant and legal advisor with all kinds of clients, from start-ups to multinational companies. She grows new revenue streams for companies, particularly in the food and hospitality industries through strategic consulting and legal support. Lauren is expert in the areas of restaurant development and expansion, franchising, product development and licensing. Before forming The Fernandez Company, Lauren served as the General Counsel for FOCUS Brands, where she ran the legal and franchise departments and provided instrumental leadership in the company's growth in both licensing and international development.

In Lauren's most recent venture, she serves as a partner of the newly formed Origin Development Group, a multi-unit franchise developer who serves as a strategic partner for both new and established franchised brands.

Lauren holds an undergraduate degree from Stetson University, as well as a JD/MBA from Emory University. She serves on the Advisory Board for the Atlanta Community Food Bank.

Thomas Rockwood/The Brand Bank Vice President, Business Development Officer

Thomas Rockwood is currently a Business Development Officer for Brand Banks Government Guaranteed Lending division out of Buckhead, GA. He is a results driven, commercial banking executive with over 10+ years of experience in government guaranteed financing solutions helping businesses thrive, grow & expand. Thomas's focus is in providing Small Business Administration (SBA) or U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) loans to businesses that qualify for these loan programs. He excels at developing and executing lending strategies vital to helping businesses increase cash flow to grow and expand their business.

What I do:

Thomas's focus is to help business owners participate in the government loan programs for which they are eligible. There are programs and/or incentives for veteran-owned, women-owned and minority-owned businesses. Additionally, there are programs for companies that export goods to foreign countries, for companies that manufacture in the US and for companies that are implementing green environmentally friendly strategies for their business to reduce energy consumption or produce renewable energy. Taking advantage of these programs helps businesses hold onto more of their cash and in some cases get extended repayment terms compared to non-government guaranteed loans.

The types of financing transactions that Thomas does helps business owners: Acquire a business Start a new business or franchise business Buyout a partner of an existing business
