Celebration of Small Businesses in Monterey

Friday, May 6, 2016
Embassy Suites, Monterey Bay, Seaside


We are pleased to announce that the Monterey County Business Council (MCBC) will be honoring outstanding small businesses in Monterey County during National Small Business Week. The event will consist of panels of traditional and alternative lenders discussing ongoing loan and financing programs. A wine and appetizer reception will follow the awards ceremony.

The Nominees are:

National Small Business Week, May 1-7, 2016 is a time to recognize the critical contributions of America’s entrepreneurs and small business owners. More than half of Americans either own or work for a small business, and they create about two out of every three new jobs in the U.S. each year. These entrepreneurs and small business owners are working hard to grow small businesses, create 21st century jobs, drive innovation, and increase our global competitiveness.

Many thanks to our speaker, Dawn Golick, Deputy District Director, Small Business Administration and our panel of lenders, including

Loree Van Bebber, Marketing Manager, California Coastal Rural Development Corporation
Robert Dennis, Vice President, SBA Business Development Officer, Heritage Bank
Rob Skeen, Vice President, Government Guarantee Lending, 1st Capital Bank
John Tilley, Sr Vice President, Pinnacle Bank
Jorge Reguerin, Vice President, SBA & USDA Lending, Santa Cruz County Bank

And the Winners…

Small business owners are the backbone of our economy and we invite you to help us honor their determination and entrepreneurial spirit!
