Mountain West Small Business Finance (MWSBF), Utah’s largest SBA 504 lender, is pleased to announce that Mike Oliver has joined MWSBF as an Underwriter and Business Development Officer.

“With extensive SBA and commercial lending experience, including nearly a decade as a CDC Business Development Officer, Mike brings a wealth of experience and a host of partnerships that will fit well within our business model and will help MWSBF achieve its long term goals,” explained John Evans, MWSBF President. Evans says the move from one certified development company to another is not unprecedented in our industry, but it is certainly rare.

“We are excited to have Mike as part of our team”, explained Evans. “His wealth of experience in the market, from both the CDC and banking sides, gives him a specific set of skills and relationships that will prove invaluable to MWSBF and to its lending partners and borrowers”.

Oliver has more than twenty years of experience in the banking and financial sector. He graduated from Utah State University with Honors, where he earned a Bachelors of Science in Political Science and Bachelors of Arts degrees in French and Liberal Arts. He earned a Masters of International Management from Thunderbird School of Global Management.

He enjoys backcountry skiing, canyoneering and mountain biking. He is married with three sons and has a Siberian Husky. Oliver notes that of all his “children,” the husky is the best behaved.
