Larry Conley, the leader of JPMorgan Chase’s Small Business Administration lending program nationwide, is retiring from the bank after 29 years.
A graduate of Texas Christian University and a resident of Fort Worth, Conley was chairman of the board of the National Association of Government Guaranteed Lenders (NAGGL) from 2015-2017.
When he took leadership of the bank’s SBA lending in 1998, the group originated $32 million in SBA loans. Last year, the group helped small-business owners with $1.2 billion in SBA financing.
“Larry has helped us build one of the most respected SBA programs in our industry and has always represented Chase extremely well,” said Andrew Kresse, CEO of Chase Business Banking. “He has been a passionate advocate for the critical importance of SBA lending.”
Conley’s plans for retirement include traveling, hiking and landscape photography with Lynda, his wife of 35 years.
His community involvement includes serving on the board of Peoplefund, the executive committee and board of NAGGL, and the Lenders Advisory Committee of the National Association of Development Companies.
