We started with an ideal in mind, to build a bank that would better serve mid-market and emerging growth companies and their principals. Since opening our doors in 2007 we have been providing clients a superior level of service, local market expertise, and a real working relationship with an experienced banker.

We're passionate about:

  • Creative Solutions

    "The satisfaction I get working on a deal, from Term Sheet to Closing, is immeasurable. I enjoy working with key executives to better understand their financing needs, and developing a creative, custom-tailored solution which not only achieves their goals, but also provides adequate operating flexibility from a cash flow perspective."

  • Client Relationships

    "My clients hold a very special place in my heart, and I do everything that I can to nurture those relationships."

  • All-Around Success

    "Every day as I arrive to work, my goal is the same: to do what I can to help my clients and my co-workers. And I think that's the attitude of most of the bankers around here. Our mindset is not, "Let's put a deal on the books." Instead, we ask ourselves, "What does this company really need?" and, "How can we structure this deal so that the company and the bank both benefit?""

  • Building Personal Relationships

    "The key differentiator in today's competitive banking environment is the personal element, and my goal is to serve clients as both advisor and advocate. I believe that long-term banking relationships are forged by the creation of customized financial solutions delivered with superior service. In each of my relationships, I strive to listen, to solve problems, and to cultivate a unique synergy between client and bank that continues to grow over time."

  • Execution

    "Having significant experience on the equity side of Commercial Real Estate development and investment, we bring a better understanding of our clients' issues and are in a better position to provide creative alternatives than our competition. This, combined with our ability to execute quickly, has allowed us to play a lead role among a select client base."

  • Small Businesses

    "I view small businesses as the engine of the economy, and my job is to do everything I can to help them succeed in today's market."
