Why We Do It

We all long to be proud of the work we do. Not just about the dollars and cents, but about the effort we put in and the good that we do. At Centennial Lending our mission, vision, and our values help ensure we can be proud of both. These ideas have always been ingrained in how we do business. We’ve formalized these ideas to clearly illustrate our commitment to continuous improvement and future preparedness.

Our Mission: We deliver superior value through innovative lending solutions, expertise, and positive experiences.

Our Vision: Be the primary lending solution for our partners and all borrowers.

Values:  Integrity: we have an unwavering commitment to honorable business practices and honest communication.

                 Expertise: We are a source of industry-leading knowledge and execution.

                Service: We pledge to provide positive experiences, creating lasting relationships.

                Innovation: We create value through superior business processes.

We believe these ideas provide a framework for continued success. By actively focusing on these ideas and practicing these values we can continue to provide industry-leading products and services, while also focusing on the impact that our efforts have on our partner’s and customer’s financial well-being, and by extension, their lives. We understand the power of our overall impact and make every effort to ensure it’s always positive.

From our Team

Aaron M. : Loan Care & Servicing

“Even though Centennial Lending is not a Credit Union, its partners are. In keeping with the Credit Union philosophy, Centennial Lending makes it easy to give back to the communities our partner credit unions serve. Team members can request payroll deductions to support local non-profit organizations such as the Longmont Humane Society, Children’s Hospital of Colorado, The Home Front Cares and Colorado Coalition for the Homeless.”

Debra C. : Commercial Processing

“I was brought up to believe that it’s incredibly important to take care of one another and the best way to be grateful for what you have is to share it with others. I’ve been involved in missions at home and abroad and have seen firsthand how easy it is to make a difference in someone’s life. I am so proud to be working at Centennial Lending! I am continually impressed and humbled by their generosity and their commitment to Community Outreach. They are always willing to help when a need is presented, and also seek out opportunities to be of service.”


Our commitment to service extends beyond our immediate customers as we recognize each of our customers is a member of a larger community. Our team relishes the opportunity to serve the community, many of them personally leading efforts to volunteer, fund raise and participate in outreach efforts.

We are proud of our team and follow their lead; supporting literally dozens of organizations and programs determined to better our communities.
