Holly Graver Joins Seedcopa + SeedcoDE

Seedcopa + SeedcoDE is pleased to announce that Holly Graver is joining the team as Senior Vice President, Business Development Officer.

Graver comes to Seedcopa + SeedcoDE after the Certified Development Company was ranked for a fourth consecutive year as the #1 SBA 504 Lender in Eastern Pennsylvania by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA). Graver previously served as Senior Vice President of Business Development for the Brandywine Division of Fulton Bank, where she has supported small- to mid-market commercial lending since 2010. She was previously a Senior Vice President at National Penn Bank focusing on new business development.

“If you do business in southeastern Pennsylvania and Delaware, then you likely already know Holly from her highly respected work enhancing relationships with bankers, accountants, attorneys and additional business leaders while forging deep connections and support for her community,” said Seedcopa + SeedcoDE Managing Director Sherwood Robbins. “Holly is a dynamic addition to Seedcopa + SeedcoDE whose knowledge of what lenders require to close loans is only matched by her ability to inspire borrowers to take the next steps to expand their businesses.”

Graver said, “I’ve spent most of my career in commercial lending, and when I ask lenders what they appreciate most, they repeatedly tell me it’s the connections I make that are always in the best interests of the client. I’m looking forward to continuing that support of lenders, with a deep understanding of what qualifies as an SBA 504 loan and a reputation for giving business back.”

Graver grew up in Hockessin, DE and Landenberg, PA, where she attended Avon Grove High School. She went on to earn her B.S. in Business Administration from Juniata College and is a resident of West Chester, PA and Millsboro, DE.

Active in community outreach for decades, Graver was recognized with the Gary R. Community Impact Award by the West Chester Area YMCA in 2019 for her extensive volunteer work. She has served on the Board of Directors for the YMCA of Greater Brandywine for 10 years. She has also served as a board member for the Greater West Chester Chamber of Commerce, including as Board Chair. In 2015, the Chester County Chamber of Business & Industry (CCCBI) named Graver the Female Business Leader of the Year.

Seedcopa + SeedcoDE is a leading provider of SBA 504 and all other government loan programs, specializing in helping businesses in Pennsylvania and Delaware access below-market interest rates.

SBA 504 is the Small Business Administration’s fixed-rate loan program for small- to mid-sized business owners, and such loans often act as a complement to conventional, commercial loans that Seedcopa + SeedcoDE facilitates through local banks and credit unions. A typical SBA 504 loan structure requires a contribution from the business owner of as little as 10%. A third-party lender, like a bank or credit union, contributes 50% of the project cost. The SBA-backed portion of the loan is up to 40%. SBA 504 loan projects help businesses purchase, construct, renovate or expand on new or existing land, as well as purchase machinery and equipment.
