Bank Of America Hires More Than 45 Small Business Bankers In Georgia

Bank of America today announced that it is hiring more than 45 small business bankers in Georgia to provide guidance and counsel to local small business owners. The additions are part of the company’s previously announced plan to hire 1,000 small business bankers across the nation by mid-2012.

“The addition of these bankers across Georgia is the latest demonstration of our commitment to small business owners across the state,” said Steve Turner, Southeast region sales executive for Bank of America. “Our small business bankers have a deep understanding of the challenges and opportunities their clients face each day, and are dedicated to provide them with the relevant knowledge, products and services they need to be successful.”

Through a relationship with a Bank of America small business banker, clients will have convenient access to local small business expertise and a dedicated resource who knows their business. Small business bankers will consult with small business owners at their place of business and educate them on solutions to help with all facets of their operations including deposit, credit and cash management needs.

These new hires will support the unique needs of small business owners in the following cities:
  • Metro Atlanta – 35 hires.
  • Augusta – 2 hires.
  • Savannah – 2 hires.

According to the Metro Atlanta Chamber of Commerce, there are 130,408 total businesses in Atlanta. Of these, 127,104 have fewer than 100 employees. Moreover, according to the U.S. Small Business Administration, businesses with fewer than 100 employees account for 54 percent of the total workforce in Atlanta, and two-thirds of the city’s job growth can be attributed to small business. Across the state of Georgia, there are 167,864 companies with fewer than 500 employees.

Bank of America continued to actively lend to small businesses across the U.S. in 2011, extending $6.4 billion in new originations to small businesses. This increased new credit to small businesses by 20 percent in 2011, enabling the bank to exceed its small business lending pledge to the White House and the SBA.
