Capital Access Group Named Top SBA 504 Lender in the South Bay AND Fastest Lender for Loan Approvals in the Bay Area

We are delighted to share two acknowledgments we received from the SBA.

Capital Access Group was ranked the #1 SBA 504 lender in the South Bay Area for the first quarter of fiscal year 2015. We provided SBA 504 loans to 16 South Bay businesses worth $23.3 million in the first quarter of fiscal year 2015. Our lending made up 34.3% of total market share in the South Bay region during this period for loans approved in Santa Clara, San Mateo, and Santa Cruz counties.

We were also recognized as the Bay Area’s fastest CDC (Certified Development Company) for turnaround time on loan approvals. Capital Access Group’s average turnaround time for loan approvals was 5.8 days—41 percent faster than the average turnaround time of 9.9 days.

“We’re especially proud of our fast turnaround time,” said Jacklyn Jordan, President/CEO. “Our team of experts is able to get loans approved more than four days faster than the regional average, and four days is a long time when you’re a small business owner purchasing a building in this highly competitive market.”

Cara Rudy Rejoins Capital Access Group as Vice President

“The work we do here makes a big difference.”

We are thrilled to announce that Cara Rudy has returned to Capital Access Group as Vice President, Business Development, effective today. We couldn’t be happier!

Cara worked at Capital Access Group from 2009 until 2014 as a Business Development Officer. She left last June to explore new opportunities in the tech world in a sales role at LinkedIn, but she missed the day-to-day interactions with small business clients and seeing the tangible results of our work.

“I am very pleased that Cara has chosen to return to the Capital Access Group team,” said Jacklyn Jordan, President/CEO. “Cara has the unique combination of skills and characteristics that are necessary to be successful in this extremely competitive industry. She’s informative, transparent, supportive, and very patient. Our small business clients and business partners are thrilled she is returning, too.”

As Vice President, Cara will resume her business development efforts, and she will also take on new responsibilities, including a stronger leadership role and a more focused effort to expand Capital Access Group’s partnerships in the South Bay.

“I’m so excited to return to Capital Access as a Vice President,” said Cara. “Nothing beats knowing that you’ve helped a small business grow, create jobs, and strengthen the community. The work we do here makes a big difference.”
