Financial Training & Development

Houston, TX


Established in 2003, we provide commercial lending training for credit analysts & lenders for commercial banks.  Our philosophy for training is simple.  We provide a practical, realistic and most importantly a small group work-shop approach to training where attendees actively participate.  No university styled lectures. 


Despite being a small training business, over 700 commercial banks from 27 states have sent attendees to our seminars.  Several thousand credit analysts and lenders have attended our flagship training the Commercial Financial Analysis series of seminars.  We also offer training in Commercial Real Estate Lending, C & I Lending and Writing Credit Presentations. For hundreds of commercial banks across the country, our training has proven essential for training their credit analysts and lenders for their role in generating sound commercial loans.

Instructor: Jim Shreve

Jim’s background includes 25 years in commercial lending/credit administration with Texas Commerce Bank, Houston, TX.  At the time, the bank was the largest commercial lender in the state of Texas. Besides his lending/credit experience, he has over 10 years of extensive loan work-out experience during the tumultuous Texas economy of the 1980’s. 

He holds a Masters in Finance and a degree in Accounting.  Since establishing this training business in 2003, literally thousands of commercial banking credit analysts and lenders have attended his training seminars.  His work-shop styled approach to training is well known for providing a rewarding experience for all attendees regardless of their background, prior experience in lending or credit analysis.

Besides training in the commercial lending world, he is the primary trainer in financial analysis & credit management for the National Association of Credit Management (NACM) of Houston.  NACM Houston’s membership includes over 1,500 local businesses. Jim enjoys a long standing relationship with CoBank, Denver, CO.  Operating in all 50 states, CoBank is the largest national cooperative bank in the U.S.  Since 2008, he has conducted training for hundreds of their credit analysts.
