Board of Directors

We seek to stimulate economic development in communities that are underserved by traditional banking institutions by providing affordable capital and innovative services and solutions. We’re able to reach these goals with the dedication and support of our diverse board of directors. Our board is comprised of talented professionals and leaders who believe in our mission and actively work to assist us in obtaining the resources we need to make a TruImpact.
