* "I like to support cultural activities," says Karen Lennon, president of Chicago-based Wessex 504 Corp. (504 corporations are federally certified non-profit development companies that administer the SBA's low-rate, low-downpayment Section 504 real estate and equipment loan program for qualifying small businesses.
There are eight 504 corporations in Illinois, six with Chicago-area offices.) Because banks are involved as lenders, bankers are a key Wessex 504 target. That's why Lennon invites Wessex' A-list bankers to a June Summer Series performance of Hubbard Street Dance Chicago. "Hubbard Street sets us apart," Lennon explains. "It's part of my marketing strategy. It's fun. It's a little different. With a relatively short season, Hubbard Street performances are something of a happening: Lennon, a past Hubbard Street chair, includes behind the scenes conversations with the dance company's director and choreographer as part of the evening's activities. The event resonates with the Wessex audience. Although not all attended, more than half the bankers receiving an invite to Hubbard Street Dance Chicago responded. A Wessex 504 event during the School of the Art Institute's annual holiday sale brought the same type of enthusiastic response. "We're a niche," Lennon says.
