Dear Colorado Lending Source Community,
It is with sadness and positive anticipation that I am sharing our job posting for the CEO position with Colorado Lending Source. I can’t imagine Colorado Lending Source would be what it is today – a thriving organization of over 30 brilliant, talented team members that in 2019 had 225 loans approved, which created 1,405 jobs and generated $330.3 Million in economic impact – had it not been for Mike O’Donnell.
Mike is a visionary, with an entrepreneurial spirit, that is intrinsically passionate about fostering the economic growth of diverse small businesses. I’ve had the pleasure of working with Mike and the Colorado Lending Source team to grow the extensive programs offered to our community including SBA 504 Loans, Community Advantage Loans, SBA 7(a) Loans, Colorado Main Street Loans, Ice House Entrepreneur Development Training, and to expand the organization’s partnerships with lenders, community organizations and government groups. The work Mike and the team have accomplished is by all measures exceptional. It takes a village and we have strong village.
Mike, on behalf of the Board, thank you for your inspiring leadership and your many contributions to the organization and to our great state of Colorado. Thank you too for your support during this transition. We appreciate your help with finding our new CEO to honor your legacy and to grow the impact of the organization you have so collaboratively, ethically and decisively built.
Tanner J. Tweten
Executive Vice President, FirstBank
Colorado Lending Source Board President
