Get to know me

As First Citizens Bank Equipment and Lease Finance Officers, our primary goal is to assist businesses with all their equipment and vehicle financing needs. Our consultative approach is to fully understand the capital expenditure needs of our customers, and to then provide the best financing solutions, and professional service.

I earned my Bachelors degree in Business Administration from Radford University. My career includes over 31 years in banking with a majority of that time spent in the Equipment Finance and Leasing and Correspondent Banking. My specific focus is working with our operations and sales team to deliver quality sales and service to our bank customers.

My spouse, Gayle, and I have been married for 29 years and are parents to two adult children who both reside in the Raleigh area. Together we spend many weekends on the Pamlico River, the "Inner Banks" of North Carolina, home improvement projects and attending NC State and Auburn sporting events. I invite you to connect with me on LinkedIn.
