Pathway Lending is excited to welcome Travis Hughes as the newest member of our staff. As our Vice President of Commercial Lending and Client Relations, Travis is leading our efforts to bring funding, education, and support to more small business owners and entrepreneurs in the Memphis market.

Travis has 16 years in the banking industry, having started as a branch manager at a national bank and rising to CEO of an economic development consulting firm where he helped small businesses – particularly minority and women-owned businesses – attract capital when they weren’t able to access traditional financing.

“Travis brings a depth of experience in small business lending and a passion for helping others to our organization,” said Hank Helton, Executive Vice President of Pathway Lending. “With his help, we’re looking forward to focusing on our presence in Memphis and across West Tennessee.”

“With the number and diversity of opportunities for entrepreneurs in the Memphis market, Pathway sees the importance of investing in the community and the economy. As a nonprofit lender, we’re providing responsible loans with a focus on minority and women-owned businesses,” said Hughes.

“Here at Pathway Lending, we don’t just provide a loan. We help our business owners succeed by providing technical assistance and advisory services. I’m ecstatic about joining this team.
