Centier Bank Named "Lender of the Year" for Community Business Lending

Premier Capital held its annual Winner’s Circle Awards ceremony and has named Centier Bank as “Lender of the Year” for its efforts in community business lending.  Centier closed the highest dollar volume in the 2016 fiscal year, totaling $14.7 million.  Additionally, Dan Peter, Vice President of Business Banking, was named “Champion of the Year” for his work in the Greater Lafayette area and throughout the state.

Premier Capital is a certified development company accredited by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) that specializes in the SBA 504 Loan program serving both Indiana and Kentucky.  Locally, Premier Capital administers the SBA 504 loan program to more than 800 Indiana businesses and works with banks to identify potential SBA 504 borrowers.

As the area’s leading bank in commercial real estate lending, Centier offers the SBA 504 Loan program as an instrument to help local communities grow and develop economically.  The program provides small companies with long-term fixed-rate financing for expansion, modernization, and for land and large equipment purchases.

“This recognition is a testament to everyone involved in the process of serving our clients, from my assistant, Elyse Storey, to our credit department and our operations team,” stated Peter. “We continue to finance many successful SBA projects throughout the state and our team is committed to providing the highest level of service that people have come to expect from Centier.”
