Scott Fessler is the CEO and President of Lightning Funding. He has been involved in the mortgage and financial sectors since 1999. His mortgage and financial expertise comes from many years of involvement in the fields as a licensed mortgage professional as well as a Certified Financial Planner. His professional Wall Street credentials also include Series 4, 7 24 and 65 licensing. Over the years he has accumulated a well- rounded knowledge in finance from all of his endeavors. Mr. Fessler was also awarded the distinction of 2010 Entrepreneur of the Year for Long Island NDEAM. On a more personal note, following a tragic accident in 2007 Scott suffered a debilitating injury which has left him paralyzed. However, with his upbeat attitude and resiliency, he has not only survived, but thrived, despite life altering injuries. He founded and is the CEO of the Fessler Foundation, Ltd. which provides financial support for primary research facilities whose goal is to find a cure for spinal cord injuries, as well as to benefit the community of individuals with these injuries. No stranger to adversity, Scott has made it part of his life’s work and ambition to help those around him, not only on a personal level, but also on a financial level as well. His mortgage company, while catering to the general public as a whole, also focuses on helping those individuals who many of the larger banks and brokerage companies can’t or simply won’t go the extra mile for. Realizing the need for a sympathetic ear, old fashioned personal attention and cost effective service, he molded Lightning Funding into a company that attempts to meet the demand for mortgage loans for credit challenged borrowers. However, the public’s need for personal service, coupled with Mr. Fessler’s commitment to helping people, has propelled Lightning Funding to the forefront of innovative mortgage financing with all types of mortgage loans for “A” credit borrowers to Bankruptcy and Foreclosure impaired borrowers. Through Mr. Fessler’s tireless efforts, the company has developed an extensive network of extremely aggressive lenders with a large variety of conventional, as well as unconventional, mortgage loan programs to handle all types of credit situations. And, since Lightning Funding does not work for any particular lender, it can select the lending institution and loan program best suited to satisfy the specific needs of each individual borrower. Because of this, the Company’s rates are consistently among the lowest and most competitive in the industry. Mr. Fessler is proud of his accomplishments and endeavors to persevere, both in his personal life and in his professional career, and with that, hopes to continue to help all those who come to him for assistance.
