A local banker was honored by the U.S. Small Business Administration on Wednesday.
Market president of Vista Bank, John Steinmetz, has won Financial Services Champion of the Year for the West Texas district office. Each year, the SBA recognizes community leaders for their efforts.
Under Steinmetz leadership, Vista Bank has given small businesses easier access to capital to help grow their businesses.
Steinmetz says much of his success is due to these local businesses - possible because of the clients.
Over the past three years, Vista Bank has finished in the top five of all SBA West Texas lenders.
