The Small Business Credit Survey (SBCS), a collaboration of all 12 Federal Reserve Banks, provides timely information about small business conditions to policymakers, service providers, and lenders. In 2020, the survey reached more than 15,000 small businesses, gathering insights about the COVID-19 pandemic’s impact on small businesses, as well as business performance and credit conditions.

He is responsible for providing high-level oversight to the community development department and making economic presentations to the Bank and Branch boards of directors, business advisory councils, and internal and external groups.
