October 15, 2019, Schaumberg, IL – Creative Lending Solutions (CLS) is proud to welcome hotel industry veteran Fred Schwartz as the company’s Chief Sales Officer.
Schwartz is a highly respected industry leader who brings more than 35 years of hospitality industry experience to Creative Lending Solutions. He joins the company having most recently served as Senior Vice President of Business Development for Northeast Bank. In that capacity, he generated hundreds of SBA financing leads, resulting in almost $50 million in loans.
