 In General

Nelson Lively has been hired by FNBC Bank, the $800 million asset community bank headquartered in Ash Flat, as Business Development Officer for its SBA Lending Division.

“I am excited to have Nelson join our growing team of SBA lending experts,” said Edward Haddock, Senior Vice President for Small Business Lending. “I have known and worked with Nelson in the past and am confident his immense SBA knowledge will serve FNBC and its clients well.”

Lively brings more than twenty years of banking and business development experience, most recently working as an SBA broker. In this new role, he will be responsible for developing growth strategies that increase FNBC’s production of government guaranteed SBA 7(a) loans, as well as actively prospecting and cultivating a network of strategic partnerships that generate new business opportunities for FNBC’s SBA Lending Division.

He will serve prospects and clients throughout FNBC’s Arkansas and Missouri footprint and beyond.

“Helping small businesses succeed is my passion,” said Nelson. “I am looking forward to working with Edward and all of the SBA team at FNBC to continue to foster new relationships and grow the SBA portfolio.”

Nelson, and his wife, Kate, reside in Cabot and have two children and five grandchildren. He is an active member of the Mount Carmel Baptist Church.

FNBC, which has 14 offices throughout North Central and Northeast Arkansas, and South-Central Missouri, formed its Small Business Division in 2018 and became an SBA Preferred Lender by the U.S. Small Business Administration later that same year.
