His extensive operational and transactional experience provides a solid foundation when advising a wide range of companies from start-ups to mature organizations.
Since 1983, Mr. Scribner has been founder and president of ASI Enterprises, Inc. an investment banking and turn around management boutique. Jeff has been involved in over 200 transactions totaling more than a billion dollars, focusing on early stage companies in the aviation, retail, manufacturing, information technology and healthcare industry sectors. Under Jeff’s management ASI earned a reputation for its creativity in special financing programs for hard to complete transactions, including venture leasing, investor backed loans for real estate developers, and turn around financing for small manufacturers.
An early highlight was a merger between a small commuter airline and a larger, regional airline. The regional company was then quickly acquired by a major national airline that is still in business today.

A data processing company was restructured and refinanced allowing it to survive and prosper as an independent company.

Debt and/or equity was raised for several other clients including a supermarket a restaurant and several small manufacturing companies including a manufacturer of healthcare equipment.
