Executive Assistant

Spataro G 2018

The first of many smiling faces you see when you walk into Florida Community Loan Fund belongs to Geoff Spataro, FCLF’s Executive Assistant. With years of banking and nonprofit experience under his belt, Geoff is the go to person for anything requiring a quick mind and impressive organization. In addition to providing administrative support to the Chief Executive Officer and Senior team as well as liaison and oversight of office systems, Geoff also supports a range of corporate office functions including scheduling and preparing for Board and Committee meetings, taking and transcribing minutes, organizing and distributing materials, maintaining files and assisting with computer user support.

Before joining FCLF in 2018, Geoff lived in Las Vegas, NV where he was voted one of the top ten Executive Assistants in the city. Geoff’s previous experience includes Project Manager at United Way of Southern Nevada and Executive Assistant at the Bank of Nevada.

Geoff lives by the motto “Stay positive, be creative and always respect your team.” He brings that enthusiasm into the office daily.
