Welcome to Lendio in South Charlotte!
Small Business Loans With a Personal Touch
Helping you turn your small business into a community cornerstone.
The Queen City is no stranger to success. Charlotte is home to the Panthers, the Hornets, and great companies such as Lowe’s, Duke Energy and Bank of America. In fact, we’re the third largest financial center in the nation. And let’s not forget what this town was built on: speed – because every Sunday afternoon is better with a little NASCAR action. If you’re exploring the Billy Graham Library, shopping in Pineville, or strolling through the historic village in Mint Hill, the pace may slow down but the fun never does.
With our rich history and downright high-octane spirit, it’s no surprise that so many small business owners have flocked to Charlotte. And now that Lendio is giving them unprecedented access to financing, our community is unstoppable. Start your engines, ladies and gents, because Charlotte small business loans are about to take off.

Chris Cronk moved to Charlotte soon after graduating from the University of Notre Dame with a B.A. in Finance and Business Economics. He spent the next 22 years working as an investment banker for Bank of America Merrill Lynch. During his tenure, he advised and helped finance companies of all shapes and sizes, from California startups to Midwestern multinational corporations and everything in between.
Eager to spend more time with his family, Chris transitioned into an investment and advisory role with local small businesses. Working with more than a dozen companies and witnessing their struggles to find capital inspired Chris to bring Lendio to Charlotte. He’s supporting his community by offering a simple, accessible way for his friends, neighbors, and colleagues to get small business loans.
When he’s not hard at work, Chris spends time with his wife and three children. He enjoys going on family vacations, exploring the trails and greenways throughout the Piedmont with his wife, and cheering on his kids in sports. Chris also teaches faith formation at his church and participates in local investment organizations.Meet
