Ex-Im Bank Names Whalen VP, Structured Finance

The Export-Import Bank of the United States announced Michael Whalen joined Ex-Im Bank as VP of structured finance, where he will oversee project and structured finance transactions that support thousands of American jobs each year and level the playing field for U.S. exporters.

Whalen most recently served as head of the structured finance department at the Overseas Private Investment Corporation, and prior to that as the chief financial officer of SolarReserve, a solar development company headquartered in California. Prior to those roles, Whalen established and led project finance teams at HSBC and Bank of America.

“Whalen’s deep experience in both the private and public sector will allow Ex-Im Bank to better serve U.S. exporters and equip them with the tools they need to win large deals overseas that support jobs here at home,” said Ex-Im Bank Chairman Fred P. Hochberg. “Michael understands today’s competitive global economy and where the opportunities exist for U.S. exporters, particularly in emerging markets. We are delighted to have him join the Ex-Im Bank team.”
