Online PR News – 08-August-2012 – Raleigh, N.C. – VantageSouth Bank announced today the addition of David Brindley to its Small Business Administration (SBA) lending group. Brindley has been named Vice President of Government Guaranteed Lending for the bank, which was ranked as the Number One SBA lender in the state of North Carolina by the SBA earlier this year.

SBA lending is a guarantee loan program aimed to help start-up and existing small businesses in the United States for a variety of business purposes and is designed for credit-worthy borrowers who may have difficulty getting access to financing at reasonable terms. According to a report issued by the North Carolina SBA District Office in Charlotte, VantageSouth Bank’s SBA lending volume production exceeded that of other community banks and larger banks in the state through the first five months of the SBA’s fiscal year. The bank’s SBA department is based out of Salisbury, with its lending professionals operating across the state.

“At VantageSouth Bank, we’re assembling a best-of-class team of banking professionals,” said Chris Kwiatkowski, Senior Vice President of Government Lending for VantageSouth Bank. “The success of our SBA team is a testament to that: they are solely dedicated to utilizing the SBA program to deliver success for our clients and communities.”
