A portrait of Rich Grogan, Executive Director
A Very Happy New Year to You All from Community Capital of Vermont!

I’m full of excitement as we head into 2019, a year I’m hopeful will be a prosperous one for Vermont’s small businesses. Now that I have my feet more firmly underneath me and I’m entering my first full year at the helm, I’m also excited about continuing to grow Community Capital in all corners of the state.

Of course that sounds nice, but how will we do it?

Teamwork Makes the Dream Work

First, we’ve built a solid team that I hope is around for some time to come. Many of you know that we added to our lending team in 2018, and as such have improved our turnaround times on new loans.

Small Business Financing Takes to the Road

Second, you’ll see us all on the road more in 2019. I look forward to meeting those of you I haven’t met thus far, and building new relationships statewide.

Let’s Talk Community Capital

Finally, we would love your help. Like us on Facebook so that you can see what our borrowers are up to, and feel free to reach out to me with any questions you may have about what we do, or whether we might be able to partner in order to help someone you are working with.

Vermont continues to nurture a distinct environment in which to build a small business, and I can’t stress how excited we are to be part of that in the New Year. Here’s to a wonderful 2019!
