Inspired by his dad, who financed many local businesses through the SBA 504 program, Tyler literally grew up around SBA lending. Today, with over nine years of SBA lending experience, Tyler brings his own unique perspective to business customers. Having worked in every facet of SBA lending, including loan origination, underwriting, closing, compliance and servicing, Tyler has acquired the knowledge to educate customers throughout the entire SBA loan process. In addition, Tyler’s substantial credit training, business acquisition expertise, and prior leadership experience with the PPP loan process allow him to provide a holistic approach to business financing. In his free time, Tyler enjoys golf, travel, going to the beach and spending time with his family.
