BankOnBuffalo, now celebrating its first year anniversary in the Western New York market, recently received a Bronze Award for lender activity and an individual honor from the Buffalo District of the U.S. Small Business Administration.
SBA Buffalo District Director Franklin J. Sciortino presented BankOnBuffalo with the Bronze Award for its FY 2017 SBA guaranteed lending activity. During that period, BankOnBuffalo had seven loan approvals for over $2 million, which supported 94 jobs in the local community.
Sciortino also presented SBA’s Ignite Award to David Hawker, assistant vice president/commercial lending at BankOnBuffalo. SBA’s Ignite Award is presented to an individual that “ignites” the lender’s utilization of SBA’s loan programs within the organization.
“We are very appreciative of the SBA Buffalo District’s recognition of our commitment to helping local businesses grow,” said Martin T. Griffith, BankOnBuffalo president. “We are excited about offering the Buffalo area a decentralized, personal approach that accelerates critical financing decisions and funding for small to middle market businesses.”
BankOnBuffalo opened branch offices in Orchard Park and Williamsville this fall to join its initial full-service branch office that was opened in February 2017 at the Electric Tower in Downtown Buffalo.
As a community bank, BankOnBuffalo, a division of CNB Bank, is being developed by local people and businesses. This local decision-making increases the level of service provided to the communities in and around Buffalo and bring growth to the entire region.
