TMC Financing, one of the top Small Business Administration (SBA) 504 lenders in California and Nevada and second largest nationwide by volume, has helped over 5,000 businesses finance projects worth over $9 billion. These businesses have retained and created over 60,000 jobs. TMC itself employs 46 people, over half of whom are women. Barbara Morrison has been the backbone, the driver, and the life of the company since day one.
TMC began operations in 1981 and founder, Barbara Morrison, remains the company’s CEO to this day. Her vision and drive are reflected in TMC’s accomplishments while being an advocate for small business owners and helping them thrive.
Before TMC Financing
TMC Financing began rather modestly with an all-female staff of six in an unheated warehouse space in San Francisco. Today, it is hard to conceive of how revolutionary that beginning was. Less than four decades ago, women were only beginning to take their places in the financial industry, and Morrison had worked hard to reach that point.
