🕐 1 min read


South Carolina-based CertusBank has expanded its market to Texas with the opening of an office in downtown Fort Worth. The location will be part of CertusBank’s Small Business Finance group, a national Small Business Administration (SBA) lender. The company has named Mike Ramsay as vice president and senior business development officer for the group’s Texas market. Ramsay has more than 20 years of experience in small business lending.

“We have had our eye on Texas for quite some time and are excited to enter the state with Mike on our team,” said George Vredeveld Jr., executive vice president of CertusBank. “We look forward to combining Mike’s experience in the government guaranteed lending industry with our exceptional product delivery as we partner with small businesses across Texas.”

Headquartered in Greenville, S.C., Certus Bank has nearly $2 billion in assets with operations in 12 states. With the acquisition of Quadrant Financial Inc. in January 2013, CertusBank became a national leader in SBA 7a lending and the largest SBA lender by volume based in South Carolina. The bank offers government guaranteed loans nationwide as a direct SBA Preferred Lender.
