Hello, I’m Chris.

I am VP of Commercial Lending at Business Lending Solutions. While I love to enjoy the great outdoors in Maine while fishing for brook trout or coaching soccer, my professional passion is deep-seated in finance. Serving as the treasurer and finance committee board member for two local non-profits helps me better understand the needs of those running a business in Maine and New Hampshire. I love being a part of the Business Lending Solutions team because of the benefits and features that set our loans apart. I want to help you discover the options that are available to your small business while offering experienced guidance to you.

Hi! My name is Timothy but you can call me Tim.

I’m VP of Commercial Lending at Business Lending Solutions. I am a native Mainer with deep roots within my community who loves to spend time traveling with my wife of 30 years and two kids. It’s important to me that every client knows that I have a genuine interest in their story and will work hard to meet the scope of their needs. I love being part of Business Lending Solutions because they offer local decision-making and a fast response time. Those valuable qualities help me offer you integrity and mutual respect while building a trusting relationship.
