Paragon Announces Staff Changes Within Small Business Capital Group


Paragon Small Business Capital Group, a division of Paragon Bank, has hired Carolyn Taylor as a Small Business Administration (SBA) Loan Closing Associate, and promoted Sylvia Bordeaux and Daniel Vo to Vice President. Taylor will report to Daniel Vo, Vice President, while Bordeaux and Vo will report to Kerri Morrin, Chief Operating Officer.

“Carolyn’s knowledge and extensive experience with small business clients make her a strong asset to our growing Small Business Capital Group,” said Robert Shaw, Chief Executive Officer at Paragon Bank. “Additionally, Sylvia and Daniel have been pivotal to our success, and their new roles will allow our team to further expand the comprehensive service offerings available to small business customers.”

In her new role, Taylor is responsible for packaging, processing, closing and funding SBA loans. Additionally, she initiates third party vendor reports and manages construction draws. These tasks branch out from the overall responsibility of customer service. Prior to joining the Paragon team, Taylor was an SBA Administrator, which included liquidating assets and selling loans on the secondary market.

Taylor received a Bachelor of Arts degree from Emory and Henry College in Emory, Va., where she double majored in Sociology and English. She has volunteered with the Atlanta Community Food Bank and Community Chorus “One Voice,” and during her free time, she enjoys singing, playing the guitar and spending time outdoors.

As Vice Presidents, Bordeaux and Vo are responsible for managing the daily functions of the Small Business Capital Group Loan Operations Department, including SBA loan booking and investor servicing parameter setup and maintenance, insurance and property tax monitoring, completing audits and overseeing quality control prior to loan closing and funding. They also work closely with investors to ensure timely settlements and accurate reporting.

Bordeaux received a bachelor’s degree in psychology from William Paterson University in Wayne, N.J. She invests time outside of work by volunteering at church and with Bridging the Gap Community Outreach. Before working at Paragon, she was an AVP SBA Loan Operations Manager at Cornerstone Bank. Vo graduated from Georgia State University and enjoys playing basketball during his free time. Prior to joining Paragon, Vo was an AVP Closing Manager at Cornerstone Bank.
