Mr. Bernstein was President of SB Capital Group, and Mr. Miller was President and CEO of 360 Merchant Solutions. SB360 is privileged to have Jay Schottenstein serve as Chairperson.
“Our companies have been working together for years, so this was the next logical step of our growth,” said Scott Bernstein. “360 has always been recognized for the strength and expertise of their merchants and we’re excited about bringing everybody into one organization.”
“It struck us that our two organizations worked so well together, we needed to make it official,” said Stephen G. Miller. “SB Capital Group’s heritage and real-world experience operating companies is invaluable. The many strengths of our two organizations complement each other and create the framework for SB360’s leadership in the asset realization industry.”
Stephen G. Miller founded 360 Merchant Solutions. Mr. Miller led the charge on many of the largest multi-asset disposition events in North America, realizing enhanced yields for all constituents.

“Today’s retail environment is tough,” said Mr. Miller. “We often see companies when it’s too late, but we would like to help companies before they reach that point. SB360 is well positioned to guide companies to overcome the difficult challenges they may face.”
SB360 will search for new opportunities to make additional equity investments in retail, wholesale, and consumer product companies.
