“I am very excited to serve on the CFA Board of Directors. The commercial finance industry plays a vital role in the economic health of our country. This industry stands ready and able to assist business owners and entrepreneurs with the necessary financing to grow and expand their businesses. I am looking forward to working with so many in our industry in advancing these goals and objectives,” stated Harding.

Harding has served as the chief credit officer for TAB Bank since March 2010. In his current role, Harding oversees all underwriting, credit analysis, and credit administration functions of the bank. Harding previously worked for TAB from 2000 to 2004 as vice president of Portfolio Operations.
