IFA Wins Distinguished Service Award From Small-Business Lenders

IFA garners prestigious award as first organization outside the lending community.

The National Association of Government Guaranteed Lenders presented the International Franchise Association with its Distinguished Service Award, the first time NAGGL has given the award to an organization outside the lending community. IFA’s leadership was noted in expanding credit access to franchise small businesses through its Small Business Lending Campaign. The campaign was launched in April 2011 with a Small Business Lending Summit, of which NAGGL, led by President and CEO Tony Wilkinson and Chairman Greg Clarkson of BBVA Compass Bank, was an anchor partner and sponsor. The award was presented Oct. 27 during the association’s annual conference in Huntington Beach, Calif.
The Distinguished Service Award is presented annually to recognize outstanding contributions to NAGGL and Small Business Administration lending.

“This is the highest honor that we make each year. The IFA has offered exemplary leadership in small-business lending advocacy and through its strategic initiatives on behalf of our nation’s veterans,” said NAGGL’s Chairman Emeritus Deryl Schuster.

NAGGL serves the needs and represents the interests of the small-business lending community that utilizes SBA and other government guaranteed loan programs. 
