Gerald Moore, district director for Michigan CU Capital, congratulated MCUL & Affiliates CEO David Adams for being named the U.S. Small Business Administration’s 2012 National Finance Services Champion.
“Your impressive accomplishments are truly worthy of this recognition,” Moore said. You consistently demonstrate a strong commitment to increasing the number of credit unions offering small business loans to entrepreneurs and small business owners. Under your leadership, Michigan credit unions experienced double digit growth in small business lending during a period when most lenders significantly cut back capital. Additionally, you have developed into an important advocate for increasing access to capital for small businesses through your lobbying efforts in both Lansing and Washington, D.C. Your tireless efforts have made a meaningful and positive economic impact throughout Michigan.”
Each year since 1963, the president issues a proclamation calling for the celebration of Small Business Week. As an award winner, Adams has been invited to attend the National Small Business Week celebration in Washington and he will also be recognized at the eighth annual Michigan Celebrates Small Business Awards event in Lansing.
