BHG Financial Expands Executive Headquarters in South Florida

BHG Financial Expands Executive Headquarters in South Florida

The Main on Las Olas has become home to some of the largest names in the financial industry as companies relocate to South Florida at a record pace. Among those names is BHG Financial, the leader in consumer and working capital loans, who has occupied an office in the building since the beginning of the year. After six months as tenants, the company is expanding to a 10,000 sq. ft. suite to accommodate their executive team and serve as a location for team building offsites. 

BHG has been headquartered in South Florida since 2001. The decision to move to the premier destination in Fort Lauderdale occurred six months ago when Co-founder, Chairman and CEO, Al Crawford relocated to Florida from New York.  

“Florida has always been an integral part of the success of our business and has been the location of our headquarters for the past twenty years,” said Al Crawford, CEO, Co-founder, and Chairman of BHG Financial. “I am thrilled to have relocated here and I can already see huge growth coming out of this hub. I am excited for what the future will bring.”  

The office serves as an executive hub led by both co-founders Al Crawford and Eric Castro, and houses other key officers including, Tyler Crawford, Chief Operating Officer, Juan Carlos Ortigosa, Chief Revenue Officer, and Katie Barnes, Chief Human Resource Officer. 

In order to maintain the company’s celebrated culture and evolve with the changing landscape of remote work, the office is being used as a location for quarterly offsites. The offsites have been instrumental in connecting BHG’s expansive workforce as employee count has grown 87% in 2 years, with employees across 39 states.  The offsites have been incredibly well received by employees, now totaling 1,500, and multiple departments have taken advantage of this opportunity to connect and collaborate. 

“Our new strategy and commitment to offsites have been a game changer in embracing not just a new way in how we collaborate, but also how we continue to strengthen BHG’s award winning culture along with fostering connections among colleagues in this new remote world,” said Eric Castro, Co-Founder of BHG Financial.    

BHG Financial also has offices in Atlanta, NYC, and Syracuse. Stay tuned for more updates as the company continues to develop, grow and deepen ties within the South Florida community!
