Michael Byers

Director of GGL Sales, SVP

I am responsible for all loan development activities related to Government Guaranteed lending originations across the Bank’s national government guaranteed lending footprint, as well as leading a team of Business Development Officers throughout the country.

I am passionate about making a difference in the lives of entrepreneurs and the clients that they serve. Through SBA lending, my team and I can help entrepreneurs with financing for all of their needs.

I have over sixteen years of financial experience.  Prior to joining Fidelity Bank, I worked for First National Bank Small Business Finance as a Vice President and Business Development Officer. I also held banking and financial positions at Piedmont Venture Capital, Wharton Gladden & Company, Landon Ellis Partners, and MSC Properties.

In addition to my financial background, I am Board Vice President of Central Wake High School, Board Member for the Association of Corporate Growth, and a board member of Junior Achievement of Eastern North Carolina.

I graduated from North Carolina State University with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science. When I am not at work, I enjoy spending time with my wife and two children and thrive in my role as #1 Soccer Dad!
