Corbin Dangerfield Joins Government Guaranteed Lending Department at Grandpoint Bank

corbinWe’re happy to announce that Corbin Dangerfield has joined Grandpoint Bank’s Government Guaranteed Lending Department as a business development officer. Corbin will be responsible for marketing and originating government guaranteed loan products for Grandpoint Bank.

Grandpoint offers a variety of government guaranteed loan products that provide alternatives if a traditional credit product is not well suited for a small or medium-sized business. These include loans through the SBA, USDA and Export-Import Bank of the U.S. These government-backed loans require less cash investment up front and offer longer loan terms than conventional loans.

“Government guaranteed loans can help bridge the gap for businesses that otherwise would not have access to capital,” said Leticia Scearce, Senior Vice President/Government Guaranteed Lending Manager. “Corbin has specific expertise in this type of lending, and we’re happy to have him join our team of professionals.”

Corbin served in the same capacity previously for Meadows Bank in Las Vegas. His experience also includes serving as a vice president and business development officer at Lehman Brothers and as a commercial real estate broker at NAI Commercial Real Estate.

“Many SBA loans are made in support of real estate investments,” said Corbin. “My experience as a real estate broker combined with my expertise in banking and finance is especially helpful to my clients, regardless of the type of government guaranteed loan that suits them best. In my new position, I’m excited to offer clients the full resources and capabilities of Grandpoint’s government guaranteed lending team.”

Another reason Corbin wanted to join Grandpoint’s SBA/Government Guaranteed Lending Department was to be part of a team that can fund qualifying loan applications at the pace business moves.

“I also appreciate that our team understands larger, more complex deals, and that we are able to offer the whole array of Government Guaranteed Lending programs, not just the 7a and 504 loans.”

When he’s not working, Corbin enjoys outdoor recreational activities, especially when it’s with his kids.

We’re glad to have him on board, and we hope Corbin may be of service to your business if you’re considering a government guaranteed loan.

In case you were not able to tune into Buddy’s Financial Fitness Hourscreen-shot-2016-09-13-at-11-07-51-am on 1700AM ESPN on June 14, we wanted to provide you with a brief video clip as well as the complete podcast of our very own Executive Vice President Stephen Friedman’s appearance on the radio show.

You don’t want to miss Stephen’s tips about applying for a loan, and you can even hear about his entrepreneurial roots in bagels and bakeries.

On the podcast, Stephen is featured for the first 30 minutes as well as the last 12 minutes. He discusses the importance of being a trusted advisor as a business owner’s banker and covers some of the basics of choosing the right form of credit. He also details the benefits of keeping your banker regularly apprised about your business and reveals “the most important thing” for growing businesses. (Spoiler Alert: it’s having continuous access to credit.)

The rest of the broadcast, which features Jim Tenuto, CEO of Renaissance Executive Forums, has some useful business information, too. But it’s not all business. Since ESPN is known as a sports network, the participants talked about basketball, too!
