Community Bank Equipment Finance Leader
Opportunity: This Southeastern Based Community Bank was founded over a hundred years ago, and has been building a lease portfolio for the last 15+ plus years. With their long time leader planning on retiring, they are proactively anticipating and managing for their succession plan by identifying the next leader of their equipment finance division. Reporting directly to the Chief Lending Officer of the bank, you will be responsible for increasing origination across a commercial & industrial platform as well as a muni platform, with an eye towards profitable and adaptable portfolio growth. While many community banks and regional players are re-trenching and withdrawing from growth, my client is looking to increase market share and stop flying under the radar.
About the Company: This bank owned equipment finance division is a hard asset generalist with an interest in both municipal and commercial equipment finance transactions. Their goal is to invest and grow equipment leasing as an end in and of itself–not simply as a means to get more deposits. As such, you will be encouraged to lead the group with an energetic eye towards growth.
