After working for many industry leading leasing companies over the past 20 years, brothers Rick and Skip Wehner decided that it was time to start their own leasing company. They believed that the Colorado and surrounding Rocky Mountain Region was an under-served market with regards to equipment leasing. They believed the name of the new company should reflect their commitment to this local market. With Denver being known nationally as the Mile High City, they decided on 5280 Financial (5,280 feet in a mile).
In mid 2011, Pinnacle Capital acquired 5280 Financial. This acquisition expanded 5280 Financial’s funding capabilities within the marketplace.
Skip is a long time coffee enthusiast and frequent café visitor. After some initial research and discussions with friends in the coffee industry, it was decided that Pinnacle Capital would launch their Specialty Coffee Finance group (formerly known as 5280 Financial) with the specific purpose of helping the specialty coffee industry grow.
Today, we continue to grow our company by building solid business relationships built on mutual respect and actively listening to our customers needs and differentiating ourselves on our commitment to not only find new relationships and opportunities, but to continually cultivate the ones we have!
