Lynn Archuleta has joined the Denver Office of Economic Development (OED) as its new business and community development lending administrator.
In her new role, Archuleta leads OED’s team that administers small business lending programs including the Neighborhood Business Revitalization program and the Revolving Loan Fund program.

Archuleta has more than 16 years experience in banking and commercial lending. Most recently, she served as vice president of business banking/Community Reinvestment Act officer at Solera National Bank. Archuleta is active within the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Metro Denver, the Colorado Women’s Chamber of Commerce, and she has served on several local nonprofit boards and committees.
