Chad Connoy (photo, right) founded Maverick Windows in November 2018 with longtime friend, Dan Michael (photo left). Both were soaring in their separate careers, but, with a vision in mind and a “rapid fire shoot-from-the-hip mentality” as inspiration, they leaped into the unknown terrain of business ownership. Their company name, “Maverick”, exemplifies the unorthodox chance they took in leaving the security of highly successful jobs to create a successful company of their own.
With 18 years in the home improvement industry, the guidance of a strong mentor, and just over a year of business ownership, Chad Connoy and his company are off to a glowing start. A vital part of his secret to success: a financing partner that had faith in him.
“Foundation Finance was the only finance company that would work with us in our first year of business” states Chad. “Having that initial finance partnership was essential to starting off on a strong foot. Knowing we had total support from Foundation Finance from the beginning was the biggest thing for us. They were there to help us grow.”
The Proof Is in the Pudding
Speed of service, responsiveness, and convenience are all elements of what it takes to close sales. DocuSign particularly, however, was a sales saver for Maverick Windows, especially when a customer lives hours away from their Dallas, TX area headquarters.
“DocuSign is the biggest advantage by far,” states Chad. “The accessibility this digital support provides, along with a great platform of smooth processes with little to no paperwork, is so beneficial to our business.”
A standout example: “I helped a husband and wife, military vets, who lived two hours from us. Because of the distance, no one wanted to go out to meet them, but they loved our product so I took the sales call. I knew that DocuSign would be advantageous in this situation, but the wife was very hesitant to use it. After a full explanation, they were impressed with how user-friendly it was and that they were able to sign from their own computer.”
Chad can recall several success stories where he didn’t think they’d get the financing, but after a simple follow up call to reconsider an auto decline, Foundation came through with an approval.
“I remember a job working with a customer who was a retired marine with a wife and two kids. He needed seven windows replaced. They were all broken in front, all single-pane windows. He was originally declined for financing, but he needed the windows bad. I left the house feeling really disappointed. I called Foundation and shared the story, asking for a second look, and the financing was approved!”
A Message from Maverick Windows
“Foundation gets things done for you. The customer support is phenomenal, and the processes are smooth. Some finance companies make things more difficult and have no process or system at all.
Having the support of Foundation Finance from the beginning was so important. We really don’t teach financing in school anymore…and not all customers understand how financing works. Foundation is there for us and our customers.”
