We are pleased to announce that Jeannie Beier has joined the team as Director of Lending.

FSWCF has experienced significant growth over the last few years. The Director of Lending is a new role in response to this growth. This senior management position was created to ensure that impact goals of key organizational program initiatives are met, with a focus on delivering loan products and development services to target markets through bank and community partner marketing channels.

“I am excited to join FSWCF and help our communities in Southwest Colorado. We not only provide access to the tools and resources they need to build their small business but we also help them build generational wealth,” said Jeannie Beier.

As Director of Lending, Beier will be responsible for designing and implementing financial products and services that are responsive to target markets; lending production, underwriting and closing, marketing and outreach to target markets, relationship-building with community partners and referral sources and technical assistance advisors. Her primary responsibility will be to deploy capital and technical assistance resources in an active, healthy loan program that is responsive to the needs of the community.

“Jeannie’s expertise and deep understanding of lending principles, risk management, and customer centric strategies brings the knowledge and skills that First Southwest Community Fund needs to align our team to the next level of service within the commercial and consumer lending fields,” stated Rosy Aburto McDonough, FSWCF’s executive director. “We are excited to welcome Jeannie to the FSWCF team!”
