Meet Our Team
Founder / Owner
Business funding is an incredibly emotional and, at times, challenging process … something that Derrick Skogsberg understands with a great degree of personal experience. In the early 2000s, Skogsberg identified an unmet need in the franchise development marketplace for comprehensive financial consulting. The end game as he saw it was not ”fund it and walk away” but rather to create a strategic, long-range plan to set the new business/client up for success for years to come. After examining the market carefully, Skogsberg founded FranFund and grew the organization into a multi-million-dollar enterprise within just a few months. He then divested his interest in that company to form Tenet Financial Group in 2008, again using his personal retirement savings to fund a second multi-million-dollar business. Skogsberg is the only executive in the franchise funding space that can make that claim.
Today, Tenet Financial Group supports many thousands of small business clients through 401(k) Rollovers, SBA Loans, Unsecured Lines of Credit, Equipment Leases and other funding options. The company is headquartered in Aledo, Texas, and has employees in 10 states and operations in four states.
I have put together an experienced team of professionals and I am proud to have them as employees at Tenet Financial Group. They can, and will, educate you on the rollover program as well as other funding options. To speak with a Senior Consultant, call (888) 901-3335.
Vice President of Plan Administration
Dan Sitzmann graduated from Westmar College in 1986 with a degree in Business, Finance and Economics, after a short venture in the insurance industry it led him to working for RL Billings & Co, a Third Party Administration (TPA) company for 22 years. He worked his first 10 years as an employee and the last 12 years as a partner/co-owner of the business.
In April 2009, he sold his ownership and a few months later, he joined Tenet Financial Group as Vice President of Plan Administration.

For Dan, each year is like putting together a puzzle, “all 401(k) plans are different, the rules and regulations from the IRS are the same, and each plan has its own unique set of demographics that have to fit together like a puzzle.”
Tenet Financial Group can help you use your retirement funds to secure funding for your business, but more importantly, when you need a TPA to service your plan and keep you in compliance, your team of in-house professionals at Tenet Financial Group will be there to serve you every step of the way.
