Crestmark promoted Jack Talkington to Crestmark CFO. In his new role, he will be responsible for overseeing Crestmark’s accounting department, and interest rate risk management funding and special projects areas. He has been tasked with bringing innovation and efficiency to these departments and functions. With this move, Talkington also joined the Crestmark Executive Committee.

Talkington joined Crestmark in 2008 with the acquisition of Commercial Capital Lending.

Talkington has extensive business experience that ranges from an entrepreneur starting a new company, to growing established businesses. Prior to Crestmark Commercial Capital Lending, Talkington worked for Deloitte & Touche, in savings and loan institutions, and in the mortgage industry. Talkington is a licensed CPA.

“Jack is ideal for this position,” said Dave Tull, Crestmark CEO. “His intelligence, eagle eye for detail, and affable manner has been of great value to Crestmark; and these characteristics will be a great asset to our company in his new role.”

“I look forward to this new opportunity with Crestmark,” said Talkington. “I’m glad to be a part of helping the bank meet its goals and expectations.”
