Colebrook Financial Company, a long-time lender to the timeshare industry, announced the extension and renewal of a hypothecation line of credit agreement with Vacation Ownership Sales, Inc. (VOS), which was first extended in 2005. VOS performs management, sales and marketing services for Vacation Internationale, North America’s oldest successful points-based vacation club.

“We’ve enjoyed doing business with VOS principal Mike Vasey,” says Colebrook Principal Bill Ryczek. “I’ve worked with the Vacation Internationale organization since 1988, and have witnessed how it has become one of the best run clubs in the vacation ownership industry.”

Vacation Ownership Sales Co-president Mike Vasey says, “Colebrook has been an integral part of our business team since the founding of our Company in 2004. During this time, Colebrook has found a way to finance a variety of business opportunities to support our strategic initiatives and growth.”
