ECG Earns National Award for the Second Year in a Row
For the second year in a row, Arizent named Sioux Falls’ Expansion Capital Group (ECG) among the ‘Best Places to Work in Financial Technology in 2020.’ ECG was selected out of hundreds of companies nationwide for its high-scoring workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems, demographics, and survey of overall employee experience.
Headquartered in Sioux Falls, SD, ECG is a technology-enabled specialty lender that has provided approximately $400 million in working capital to small businesses throughout the United States. In addition to earning this recognition from Arizent in 2019, ECG was also named among the ‘America’s Fastest Growing Companies’ for the second year in a row by Inc. 5000. Shortly after, they were nominated as finalists as ‘Growth Startup of the Year’ by local Hey Sioux Falls.
Vincent Ney, CEO of Expansion Capital Group, said, “On behalf of the ECG Leadership team, it is an incredible honor to celebrate this recognition alongside our hard-working colleagues. Putting people first is and always will be a founding philosophy of ECG. We’ve intentionally established goals for growth and introspection that contribute to the qualities of a healthy and vibrant work environment. I look forward to continuing to find ways we can challenge ourselves to do this better every day.”
