Top Lenders Recognized During the SBA Utah District Office

Lender Awards Ceremony

Marla Lender Awards

 

At its Utah Lender Awards Ceremony last week, the U.S. Small Business Administration’s (SBA) Utah District Office honored several of its top lending partners for their commitment and contributions to providing important capital through SBA’s traditional loan programs to Utah’s small businesses during the Fiscal Year 2021 (October 1, 2020, through September 30, 2021). The Utah District Office also recognized lenders that provided significant funding locally and nationally through its critically important Paycheck Protection Program in 2020 and 2021.  The Ceremony was held at the Salt Lake City Marriott City Center.

 

“We appreciate the long hours that were put in by our lending partners, who often worked late into the night and on weekends,” said Marla Trollan, SBA Utah District Director. “Despite COVID’s challenges, our Utah lenders provided a total of $1.34 billion in traditional funding, a 50% increase over FY20. Not only did they set record numbers but they also provided enormous amounts of SBA COVID-relief funding to these small businesses. These lenders’ dedication to the Utah small business community resulted in over $7 billion of PPP funding during 2020 and 2021. Their efforts have helped drive Utah’s recovery and made a positive economic impact. Our lenders continue to make the Utah District Office one of the top three District Offices in the nation for the number and dollar amount of SBA loans per capita in SBA 7(a) and 504 funding.
