“Serving” Again to Support Military Veteran Business Owners
I come from a family of military veterans. I am a graduate of West Point and served in the US Army before entering business. My grandfather served in the Army Air Corps during WWII, my father served as an Infantry Officer in Vietnam, my brother served in the US Army at the same time I did, and now my oldest son is finishing Army ROTC with plans to become an Army medical doctor.
There were times when I wished I had stayed in the Army for a full 20+ year career instead of entering the corporate world. I have worked for amazing companies, but the camaraderie of going through tough shared experiences in the military with my brothers and sisters in arms built bonds that we will forever share. I missed the supportive social network where everyone helped their teammates through the good and bad times, and to be honest, how we joked and ribbed each other in good nature.
Supporting VOSBs with Veteran Business Loans & Contract Financing
But as the new Chief Marketing Officer at StreetShares, I feel that camaraderie again. I am so proud to support veteran small business owners with innovative lending products such as veteran business loans, the Patriot Express1 lines of credit and government contract financing tailored to their needs. I feel blessed to “serve” in the company alongside many veterans. I work with veterans of the Army, Marine Corps, Navy, and Air Force. And yes, we are working on finding Coast Guard veterans to work at StreetShares!
