The U.S. Small Business Administration Again Names Banner Bank Washington Regional Lender of the Year

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 12 maggio 2019

Banner Bank’s commitment to small business lending earned the bank numerous awards from the U.S. Small Business Administration again this year. Banner was named Regional Lender of the Year for the Seattle/Spokane District of Washington, Star Performer in the Portland, Oregon District, and a National Lender Recognition Award in the Sacramento, Calif. District. The awards were presented at separate ceremonies as part of National Small Business Week.
This is the seventh straight year the SBA recognized Banner Bank’s commitment in Washington. This is the fourth year Banner received the Star Performer Award in Oregon and the second year of recognition in Northern California, a region the bank has served for just three years.The SBA announced Banner Bank originated the most loans last year among all banks serving Washington State, approving 174 loans totaling $40,462,420. The agency named Banner its Regional Lender of the Year for the Spokane/Seattle District at the Washington Small Business Awards Gala Wednesday night. The SBA’s Seattle/Spokane District includes the entire state of Washington except for a small geographic region that includes Vancouver, Wash., which is included in the Portland District, due to proximity.Banner Bank closed 51 loans in Oregon’s Portland District during the SBA fiscal year, totaling $4,527,500. Earlier this month, the SBA presented Banner with its Star Performer Award for demonstrating “lending excellence” closing at least 20 loans during the agency’s fiscal year. The SBA’s Portland District includes Vancouver and 30 of the 36 Oregon counties. Only the six most eastern counties are not included as they are assigned to the Boise, Idaho District.The SBA also presented Banner with a National Lender Recognition award in the Sacramento District for originating 23 loans last year totaling $3,190,600. This district covers the 21 counties of northeastern California.

Letter to editor. Supporters like you are the reason I’m here, and the values we share have always made our organization more than just a political campaign. So whenever I can, I want to take the opportunity to meet you. Last month, that meant I got to talk to folks in Iowa about small-business opportunities, and sit down with a group of volunteers from around the country who helped build this campaign in their communities this summer. Today, I want to ask if you’ll join me and three other supporters for a meal and conversation sometime soon.
If this sounds a bit familiar to you, it’s because we’ve done this before. In fact, my hope is that I’ll be able to keep doing these dinners throughout the campaign. They’re a chance for me to talk one on one with people like you who are taking ownership of this campaign and connect with the work going on every day in neighborhoods across the country. These dinners also set our campaign apart. No matter what our opponents do over the next 14 months, dinners like these are how we will continue to put people at the heart of this campaign — and prove that we don’t need checks from Washington lobbyists or special-interest PAC money to win an election. We can do it person to person, in our neighborhoods and backyards, and over the dinner table. (Barack Obama)
