Lima One Capital named NPLA Capital Provider of the Year, Jeff Tennyson named CEO of the Year

GREENVILLE, S.C.— It was a double victory for Lima One Capital at the most recent National Private Lenders Association Conference in Austin, Texas.

CEO Jeff Tennyson won the CEO of the Year honor, while the company was named the Capital Provider of the Year by the country’s leading association of private lenders.

Lima One was honored for its strong performance in 2023 at a time that marked material disruption to many private lending firms. On the other hand, Lima One is on course for record originations in 2023 and surpassed $8 billion in lifetime originations during the year.

As CEO, Tennyson led Lima One Capital to record originations along with other highlights in 2023, notably the announcement of a new corporate headquarters in Greenville, S.C. and the launch of major strategic technology upgrades and two new sales channels designed to help the company grow in 2023 and in the future.

Under Tennyson’s leadership, Lima One has been recognized as one of America’s Fastest Growing Companies on the Inc. 5000 list as well as recognition as a Top Workplace and Best Place to Work. Among his many other industry honors, Tennyson was named to the 2020 Mortgage Global List, and is a two-time HousingWire Vanguard winner, most recently in 2022.
