KeyBank Expands Midwest Team with ABL Veteran

KeyBank Business Capital announced it hired seasoned ABL banker Christopher R. Snyder. Snyder will work with businesses located in Central and Southern Ohio, Kentucky and Central Indiana. He is based in Cincinnati.

“Chris has exceptional experience helping middle market and mid-cap companies make good use of ABL as a financing tool,” said Laurie Muller-Girard, national director of KeyBank Business Capital.

Snyder joins KeyBank Business Capital from Cole Taylor Business Capital. His experience includes stints with FirstMerit and the former National City Bank. Although his banking career has taken him throughout the United States, Snyder has spent the past decade advising businesses in the tri-state region of southern Ohio, northern Kentucky and southern Indiana.

“This regional economy is growing, particularly in industries such as manufacturing and business services that are good fits for ABL,” Muller-Girard said. “We’re excited at the potential to work with more area middle market and mid-cap businesses.”

Snyder is a member of the Association for Corporate Growth, Commercial Finance Association, the Tristate Association for Corporate Renewal, and the Turnaround Management Association.
