IOU Central, the progressive online small business lender, announced today that it was awarded a Silver Stevie® Award in the category of Financial Services - Fastest Growing Company of the Year in the 12th Annual American Business Awards.

“Our tremendous growth is a direct result of the dedication and skill of our entire team. IOU Central is honored to have been recognized by the American Business Awards and to accept this award,” stated President and COO Robert Gloer.
