CEO and Founder
YourSBA.com has a simple mission: To deliver a free, fast, smooth and secure process for small business owners and SBA borrowers from initial inquiry to successful loan closing. Our SaaS technology platforms – YourEdge™, ForeverTrack™, SBA Loan Calculator and our bank/lender platform – are industry-disrupting, one-of-a-kind, technology conduits between borrowers, banks and business advisors. Our platform-based services should eliminate the need for loan broker expenses to the client and bank marketing inefficiencies, what I call, “friction in the marketplace.”
Each week, hundreds of highly talented, driven and successful business owners from coast to coast interact with our platforms and calculators learning about the possibilities of SBA lending. My favorite attribute of our customer base is that it is growing primarily from referrals of existing clients and business professionals who have worked with us. Is there any greater compliment for a company?
My background is technology and finance. I’ve grown four successful companies. I was the number two person at an extremely successful technology company right after Washington University and the John M. Olin School of Business. The success of that company and its sale to a public company in Colorado has given me and my family extraordinary opportunities in business and in life.
My second and third companies were technology companies serving the largest financial firms in the country. Some of those clients were Western Union, formerly Travelex; AT&T and its subsidiaries; Fannie Mae and numerous other great companies.
Each day I have the pleasure to work with Dr. Chet Skamiera, M.D. Chet is an Ivy-League graduate and one of the smartest people I have ever met. It took me six months after meeting Chet to decide if it was a good fit for him (and me) for him to join our team. I asked him to interview everywhere and talk to everyone before deciding if he wanted to move out to Los Angeles and help me take this company to the next level. If you have the good fortune to work with Dr. Skamiera you are in great hands – he is the hardest working person I know.
Personally, I enjoy fitness including long weekend bike rides from south Pacific Palisades to Venice Beach.
We are based in Los Angeles, California and are registered as a California technology platform company.
