Get to know me

I have a passion for growing a company's enterprise value. Capital equipment financing is an important tool that helps achieve certain goals and objectives, and should be highly tailored by an expert with a proven track record. I have 25+ years of experience in developing C-suite and key stake holder relationships as a trusted partner and advisor. With a deep understanding of financial engineering, tax and accounting rules, and capital utilization, I continually seek ways to enhance value to clients of First Citizens Bank. I mainly focus on middle market clients with significant CAPEX equipment procurement requirements and with Revenue and Ebitda north of $100M and $20M, respectively. Industries I have expertise in are General Manufacturing, Distribution, Energy, and Food & Beverage.

I live outside of Charlotte, NC with my wife and three children. I spend a good deal of my spare time volunteering for non-profits in my local community, such as Give Hope Global (
