About Us

About Kamide & Associates

Sie Kamide founded Kamide & Associates on the principle of "Win-Win". Too often negotiations with banks, vendors, customers and shareholders in distressed situations revert to "Win-Lose". Our unique perspective as a business owner, CFO and Bank Executive with over 35 years of experience allows us to see both sides of every negotiation and transaction.

We also have access to investors that provide capital and debt solutions to assist a business owner in a distressed situation with its financial institution and our extensive leveraged finance background and extensive contacts and respect within the banking community in Florida allow us to get the appropriate financing for every situation.

Our focus and skill set is centered on "fixing" and "building". Business as usual is simply not an option. Problem solving is truly in our DNA!

Testimonial

TSI’s relationship with Sie Kamide of Kamide & Associates developed over 3 years ago as our contracting company was facing some extremely tough financial challenges. Sie's background and diversified business experience brought a unique perspective to the table in providing the guidance we needed to develop and implement a viable and workable turnaround plan that provided a return path to profitability.

Working together with Sie also enhanced our position with banks and lenders which enabled us to secure critical refinancing, working capital and additional credit facilities. As we have continued to work hard and work our plan, we are once again realizing success as a result of our joint efforts.

Sie's expertise and insight was instrumental in our recovery. As we go forward, our highly valued relationship with Kamide & Associates as a strategic business partner remains ongoing to ensure our success continues into the future.
