Alternative Capital Solutions Vice President and Chief Operations Officer, Jeff Luker, took home the gold medal at the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) Grappling Games in Nashville, Tennessee over the weekend. Jeff has served in the Commercial Lending industry for 6 years and has excelled in his practice of BJJ since 2017 – currently holding a 4-stripe blue belt.  

Jeff exemplifies hard work and strong leadership inside and outside the office – on and off the mat. We are proud of Jeff and all that he has achieved professionally as well as personally and his discipline is echoed throughout both. 

As Master Carlos Gracie, Jr., legendary practitioner and professor of BJJ, has stated:

“Discipline and consistency. I owe these two factors to all I have attained in life. Things have never happened overnight. Results have appeared as consequence of decades long toil. It is necessary to persist.” 

Discipline and consistency are key no matter where you are in life or whatever your goals may be. Let’s make these values part of our mantra for 2021.
