What Ed finds most gratifying about his work at Cogent Bank is helping small- and medium- sized businesses continue to expand and be successful—something that benefits everyone in our community. When seeking financing, before applying for a loan Ed advises companies to first “contact a Cogent Bank Relationship Manager for an initial meeting to discuss the loan request and receive guidance on the information that will need to be provided to move forward with the approval process.”
