Chris Hurn of Mercantile Capital Corp. is Major Media Resource for Small Business Banking
Christopher G. Hurn, chief executive officer of Mercantile Capital Corporation in Orlando, is getting used to his new role as the in-demand resource for major media reports that range from the Washington Post to the Huffington Post to Fox News.
Hurn, whose expertise ranges widely but centers on financing small business enterprises, writes regularly for the Huffington Post website and even produces his own videos for YouTube.
“It makes for a very demanding schedule, but I’m on a mission,” Hurn admits. “I believe small business entrepreneurs fuel the national economy, and I enjoy the work I do to help them grow their businesses,”
Off hand, Hurn can only recite a short list of his recent media appearances:
He is more eloquent when he talks about the importance of his work financing small business enterprises.
“Small business entrepreneurs are the Kit Carsons and Daniel Boones of my generation,”
Led by Hurn and chairman Geof Longstaff, Mercantile Capital Corporation is a three-time member of Inc. magazine’s Inc. 500|5000 list of the fastest-growing private companies in the U.S. and ranks as one of the nation’s leading providers of U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) 504 loans, also known as SmartChoice Commercial Loans.
In the first 10 months of this year, Mercantile announced it closed 85 commercial loans to finance projects totaling $364 million in total project costs. By the end of the year the company’s loan volume could reach $450 million.
Hurn, named a Top 100 Small Business Influence Champion for 2012, recently published his first book, The Entrepreneurs Secret to Creating Wealth: How the Smartest Business Owners Build Their Fortunes, which has become an Amazon.com bestseller.
