Patricia Case

VP of SBA Lending

As a former business owner, Patricia Case understands both sides of small business lending. In 1994, Patricia opened The Puddle Duck and Suite 116, an upscale retail children’s clothing establishment in DePere, Wisconsin. While she found owning a business gratifying, Patricia was especially inspired by the close banking relationship she forged with the business’s bank. Upon a move back to the Kansas City area, Patricia took the leap into banking.  Patricia’s career dates to 1993 and includes expertise in all facets of small business lending with a specialized focus on loans guaranteed by the US Small Business Administration (SBA loans). 

Patricia is proud of the knowledge she has gained and believes her success stems from her experience as a business owner and understanding what it is like on the other side of the desk. Not only does she conduct business development, but she also understands the credit aspects of SBA loans, and is able to help small business owners understand the merits of each loan opportunity.

Patricia is currently Vice President of SBA Lending at Fortune. She admires that Fortune takes on the approach of being a partner with small business owners. Patricia is able to speak the language of business owners, and ensures that her clients feel like partners in their financial decisions. Patricia holds a bachelors degree in both business and in psychology from the University of Kansas and a master’s degree in finance from Rockhurst University.
