Scott Fanelli

Mark Twain once said, “thunder is impressive, but it is lightning that does the work.”  Scott has applied this philosophy to helping businesses, with an emphasis in the healthcare and insurance industries, secure financing for over 20 years so it’s not exactly surprising that he’s actually been struck by lightning! Thorough communication, accessibility, smart solutions, and a good dose of tenacity from application through closing are what Scott’s clients can expect from him. When he’s not working with clients, Scott enjoys boating, golfing, soccer, being a #girldad, and cheering on his Steelers!

Rebecca Grant

Rebecca’s lending experience is shaped by her multiple banking positions throughout her career, an interest in entrepreneurship, and a few unique adventures. Her 25+ years of experience as a SBA lender, private banker and in loan operations provides a strong understanding of how to get a deal closed, however, it’s her personal exposure to business ownership that brings an extra appreciation for the loan process and how it affects owners. Rebecca’s spirit of volunteerism and curiosity about entrepreneurs have presented her with opportunities such as being a “loaned executive” to the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta; training for and completing a marathon as a fundraiser for the Arthritis Foundation; and having a healthy obsession with Shark Tank!
