Arne Monson

Arne Monson,
President and Co-founder

It’s often said that small businesses are the engine that drives the U.S. economy. We wholeheartedly agree – but we like to add a bit more to the statement, and this is it: while our country’s entrepreneurs are hard at work delivering goods, services, and innovation, more than likely, their community’s financial institutions are busy pumping vitality into those businesses, extending the SBA- and USDA-guaranteed credit that helps keep those operations growing.

That, in a nutshell, is why Holtmeyer & Monson was founded. We decided decades ago that we wanted to be an integral part of this circle of commerce. So we added our passion to the mix, and turned our banking and SBA experience into a lending services company.

We continue to encourage financial institutions to offer government-guaranteed loans, as the benefits of these valuable products are significant. With our help as their outsourced SBA and USDA loan department, community institutions are adding non-interest fee income, expanding their offerings to borrowers and creating lasting business relationships.

If you’d like to learn more, browse our site. Sign up for our newsletter. Give us a call. Look for us at industry events. We’re always eager to make new acquaintances, and we freely answer any and all questions about what’s involved in these types of loans (it’s really not the hurdle you may have heard about).

Which brings me to another point. Our company is pretty darned good at advocating on behalf of small business lenders. We’re honored to be invited to speak before regulators, participate in the Independent Community Bankers of America (ICBA) events and at government forums. We’re dedicated to being a trusted partner to those we serve and a reliable friend to those we encounter.

Thanks for visiting our website. We hope to get the opportunity to meet in person.
