Brett Goodwin, Vice President of Commercial Lines at Bernard Williams & Company, has been named Chairman of the Board for the Small Business Assistance Corporation (SBAC). He has been a SBAC volunteer since 2013.
Goodwin’s previous volunteer efforts with SBAC have included leading the organization’s Loan Committee. “I strongly believe in SBAC’s mission to provide access to capital for new and existing small business,” Goodwin said. “This helps retain and create new jobs which has a positive economic impact and further strengthens our community.”
“Volunteering to help others is always rewarding, but working on SBAC’s Loan Committee is something special. I enjoy helping entrepreneurs obtain the required funding to open their small business, especially if there might not otherwise be any funding options,” Goodwin explained. “Serving on the Loan Committee is very rewarding and helps to build and strengthen our local community,” he added.
Goodwin earned a degree in Finance from the University of Georgia and has a CPCU (Chartered Property Casualty Underwriters) designation. He joined Bernard Williams & Company in 2003 and his previous experience includes working at John Hancock in Atlanta.
