Team

Our one-of-a-kind team

Experienced and trusted

Each day on our team is different because each of our client’s stories is different. Many of Business Lending Group’s team members have been here for years and have yet to experience the same day twice. Whether we’ve been a part of the team for 20 days or 20 years, this diversity of work ensures we’re learning every day, making seasoned experts in our field.

We thrive as a team because we’re all motivated self-starters who are passionate about the work we do. Our strong credit-union partnership provides daily opportunities for our team to grow. Plus, our intimate team size means we’re always learning from one other.
