May 5, 2017 - 01:44 PM

Addie Roberge, SBA commercial lender at Heritage Bank, has been named by the U.S. Small Business Administration as the 2017 Financial Services Advocate of the Year.

The award recognizes an individual or organization that advocates and assists the small business community by increasing the availability of accounting and financial services.

"It was such an honor to hear I had even been nominated for this award, so when I received the call from SBA, I nearly jumped through the roof," Roberge said. "I couldn't be more delighted to receive the Financial Services Advocate of the Year Award, as it's for doing something I truly enjoy."

Roberge, who joined Heritage in 2016, has been in banking since 2002. She has partnered with a number of local organizations, such as Washington Small Business Development Centers, SCORE, the Center for Inclusive Entrepreneurship, Impact Hub, and Economic Alliance of Snohomish County to deliver financial access information and training.

"Watching Addie work with our small business community, as a lender and as a volunteer, is so inspiring,” said Christine Heckert, senior vice president and SBA manager at Heritage. “I've never seen someone work as hard as Addie does. She helps businesses which, in turn, creates jobs for the economy, and most importantly, helps individuals fulfill their dreams."
