KeyBank EVP Testifies On Behalf Of Roundtable And CBA

WASHINGTON, Feb. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Maria C. Coyne, KeyBank Executive Vice President, Branch Network, testified today before a hearing of the U.S. House Committee on Small Business on "The State of American Small Businesses." Ms. Coyne spoke on behalf of The Financial Services Roundtable and the Consumer Bankers Association.

In her testimony, Coyne stated KeyBank's commitment to women-owned businesses had totaled $6 billion in lending since 2005. She also reiterated a 2011 commitment made by KeyBank and 12 other banks to increase small business lending by $20 billion over three years. Coyne cited widespread industry support for increases in small business lending; calling small businesses the "cornerstone of the American economy and its communities."

"KeyBank, the Roundtable and CBA have supported, and will continue to support, the various efforts of this Committee and Congress to expand small business lending and to stimulate economic development," Coyne said.  "As a result, many small business lenders have instituted aggressive second-look programs to ensure no stone is unturned when finding ways to make more quality loans. These second-look programs are resulting in more approvals."

Coyne also noted a parallel track between the country's economic outlook and lending projections.

"It is a myth that banks are holding back the economy by refusing to loan to small and large businesses," she said.  "In fact, overall domestic loans increased 5% by the end of 2011, reaching $2.1 trillion by the end of the second quarter of 2012. However, today's economic environment remains a challenge for many small businesses."
