DENVER, Oct. 05, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Community Banks of Colorado, a division of NBH Bank(the “Bank”) is honored to be recognized in 2020 as Start Up and Job Creation Lender of the Year as part of the U.S. Small Business Administration’s Colorado District Office’s Annual Awards.
“At NBH Bank, we believe the entrepreneurial spirit is the foundation of our communities, and we utilize SBA loans to provide responsible financing that supports that spirit. This award is really a testament to the vision and hard work of our clients, without whom this honor would not be possible,” said Mark Abell, SBA Division Director at NBH Bank.
The Bank was selected to receive this award based on the number of loans it made in the special categories of job creation and small business start ups. Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Bank provided over $25.4 million in SBA loans to develop Colorado’s small businesses. These loans were made to minority, female and veteran-owned businesses, including start up and existing businesses.
“This lender demonstrated its willingness to bolster Colorado’s entrepreneurial community by providing commercial lending to companies, which in turn provided jobs to Coloradans and to the often overlooked companies languishing in their nascent stages,” said Steve White, Lead Lender Relations Specialist, U.S. Small Business Administration and cohost of the 2020 SBA Colorado Annual Awards presentation. “NBH continues to be the entrepreneur’s champion with a fervent focus on job creation and business development.”
