Vice President, Senior Underwriter
An experienced and detail-oriented financial professional, I structure and underwrite asset based loans that enable our clients to grow and succeed. I appreciate the flexibility Veritas offers to be creative in designing a structure that works best for our clients. I bring strong financial knowledge gained over 21 years in asset-based lending, factoring, commercial middle market lending, and business banking in the United States and Northern Ireland as well as in underwriting, new business development, portfolio management, and relationship building.
Veritas’ entrepreneurial mindset, fast pace and nimble approach means that each employee is a critical part of the process, and empowers us to champion a deal through to closing. Hands-on and self-motivated, I enjoy the challenge inherent in leading a transaction from the sales team handoff to underwriting, through to loan closing and handoff to the portfolio manager. Being responsible for the entire process allows me to turn things around quickly for our clients and to be a resource to better meet their needs.
My experience includes portfolio management as well as structuring, underwriting and syndicating transactions for both U.S. and U.K. institutions including First Capital, CIT, Presidential Financial, Allied Irish Bank and other well-known and respected organizations. Holding dual citizenship in the U.S. and the Republic of Ireland allowed me to gain international professional and educational experience that has been invaluable in understanding our clients’ opportunities and challenges in an ever-increasing global economy.
I am a member of the Turnaround Management Association (TMA) and Commercial Finance Association (CFA), and earned my Bachelor’s degree in Finance and International Business Administration from the Fox School of Business at Temple University and the University of Glasgow, Scotland.
