Burlington, VT (September 14th, 2022) – Executive Director Michael Gaughan announced that the Vermont Bond Bank (Bond Bank) named Ken Linge as its new Loan Officer following an extensive search.

At the Bond Bank, Ken will support existing and potential borrowers by responding to loan inquiries, guiding borrowers through the application process, and serving as a source of technical assistance for questions surrounding debt issuance. He will also lead the development of the Bond Bank’s new Flexible Loan Fund.
