Banking and Business Consultants was formed in 1989 by Roy Franc Baas, during the height of the oil-related depression in Louisiana. The deep recession created opportunities and a need for professional crisis-management services to address the explosion of failures and near-failures developing in previously stable business enterprises. Business people were being forced to deal with lenders and regulatory agencies more often and with less favorable results than any business negotiations they had formerly experienced. Baas assembled a team of financial professionals, most with extensive backgrounds in financial institutions, to provide expertise in financial management where business owners had limited or no experience.

This initial effort evolved over the years into a full-service financial consulting firm specializing in advice and representation, coaching, business planning, capital and debt placements, litigation support, and the other services described at this site.
