SACRAMENTO, Calif., Nov. 14, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Sacramento-based Golden Pacific Bank, NA announced today that the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) has awarded Golden Pacific Bank with the SBA Preferred Lender designation.

As an SBA Preferred Lender, Golden Pacific Bank has the ability to close and service government guaranteed loans in a streamlined and expedited manner, responsibilities granted to the Bank by the Small Business Administration based upon the Bank’s knowledge of SBA policies and procedures, as well as their demonstrated experience with government guaranteed lending.

“Golden Pacific Bank is proud to achieve this designation from the U.S. Small Business Administration. Our Bank is firmly committed to creating opportunities and providing the financial services to our business community that will help them grow and thrive in this challenging economy.

  • Yet Another Unlicensed Contractor Debacle 2017/07/10
    This story is late in publishing because the AOC (ahem, the judicial council) spent months drawing out our requests for information on a simple inquiry they should have been able to deliver on the same day it was received because what scant information they did provide was readily available to them. But they dragged out […]

    More false promises of tunnels reaching out from jails to courthouses.
