Amy Horn, WG11, New Chair of Business of Government Roundtable

Following a successful beginning under Monisha Mittal,
the Club is pleased to announce the new Chair of this popular group

Meet Amy J. Horn

As the new Chair of this important Roundtable, Amy will continue the quality programming initiated by her predecessor, Monisha Mittal. Fortunately, Monisha will continue to participate in the programs of this group.

As Executive Vice President, Federal National Payables, Inc., she is responsible for marketing the company’s contract financing program to small, minority, women, and veteran owned business. Amy has worked with government contractors for ten years. Previously she held sales/marketing and underwriting positions with Action Capital Corp. and Commerce Funding Corp. (now Wells Fargo Business Credit).

Amy has been instrumental in helping up-and-coming small businesses grow. She’s provided these companies with millions of dollars in working capital to perform on contracts when they can’t obtain financing from traditional banks.

Prior to lending, Amy worked as an investment banker in mergers and acquisitions for federal contractors and early stage capital formation for tech companies. She has served as a business plan judge and coach for a number of organizations, including Springboard 2000 and Mid-Atlantic Venture Association and as a judge for the Georgia District Office SBA awards.

Passionate about helping small businesses to obtain financing to grow their firms, Amy has written articles that appeared in publications such as The Veterans Business Journal and TargetGov and newsletters for The Coalition for Government Procurement and Fairfax County Economic Development Authority. She has also spoken at numerous government contracting events across the country, including those held by the SBA, The Boeing Company, and NASA.

Amy is on the board of directors of the Community Business Partnership of Fairfax County and is an advisory board member of MBDA’s National Capital Business Opportunity Committee. In her spare time, she has tutored adult students for the Washington Literacy Council. She received a BA cum laude in Economics and will receive an MBA from The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania in 2011.
