Evan Cannon

Senior Analyst

“I come from a family of entrepreneurs – my grandfather started a frozen foods business from the back of a truck that grew to employ 100 people in the local community. I worked in my parents’ business throughout my upbringing and know the daily struggles they went through to keep that business afloat. I am honored to be able to work with entrepreneurs to give them the opportunity to grow their businesses, realize their dreams, and support their local community like my family did.”
