Lead. Mentor. Inspire.
As Founder and President, Barbara and her team at TMC Financing have provided over $6.4 billion in commercial real estate financing for more than 3,900 small businesses. These businesses have retained and created over 27,000 jobs. TMC ranks annually as the largest SBA lender in Northern California and has ranked among the top five CDCs nationally for over a decade. Barbara also founded Working Solutions, a nonprofit organization committed to providing micro loans, coaching and education to Bay Area entrepreneurs. The Financial Woman of the Year Award applauds Barbara's outstanding leadership in financial services, her active participation in the community, and her unwavering commitment to the advancement of women.
The purpose of this event is three-fold: to raise awareness about the successes of women in finance, to honor an outstanding woman financial leader in the Bay Area, and to generate funds for the FWA Scholarship Program. With the proceeds generated by this event, the Fund has contributed to the future of women in finance by awarding over $1.8 million
to more than 200 Bay Area women who show promise
as future financial leaders!
