I joined the BCEDC because of its vital role in providing business financing and job creation throughout the community in which I was raised and still live and work. I have worked with the BCEDC in my prior positions on other deals, and I know the importance of the niche that the Corporation serves. Being part of the BCEDC Board allows me to donate my time to a not-for-profit organization to which  I offer useful skills and knowledge, also while collaborating with old friends and new friends that I have come to know in the financing community. It is an honor and a privilege to be a member of this illustrious group.
