Itamar ChalifRockland Trust, Business Banking
Itamar Chalif is a widely regarded business leader, best known for his aggressive, pragmatic and effective approaches to enterprise financing and strategy. The business community also values Itamar’s construction of collaborative networks within New England to develop synergies among business leaders and advisors.
From serial business successes in his native country, Itamar brought his commercial talents to the US in 1991. Undeterred by a softening economy and what was then his lack of proficiency in both English and US business practices, he built a track record of success in the sale and financing of rolling stock (cars, trucks and heavy equipment) on which he further developed a proficiency in equipment financing. Itamar cultivated a broader expertise in financial consulting to found Atlantic Capital Solutions, Inc. (ACS) in 2005. This finance consulting practice served the needs of business owners throughout the country, guiding and advocating for them in assessing alternatives to secure the right funding and credit solutions. In addition, through long term lender relationships, he assembled solid financing structures to sustain clients’ growth, or in some cases their survival.
In 2010, Itamar was recruited by Rockland Trust to help build on the Bank’s expanding services to its business customers. By merging his expertise with the strength and commitment of Rockland Trust, he is now better positioned to address his clients’ needs. In addition to providing traditional banking services, he still takes the time necessary to understand his clients’ objectives, and create bank and nonbank support teams to aid their strategic positioning and operations.
Itamar Chalif generously shares his expertise with clients and colleagues. He is a speaker, writer and respected counsel to the business community. He is a valued resource to business owners and leaders as they consider business financing alternatives to meet the needs of their companies and customers.
Itamar and his wife of 25 years, along with their three children and family dog, live in Middleboro, Massachusetts.
