White Oak Commercial Finance appointed Andrew Bae to director of ABL Originations, concentrating on Texas and the Southwestern U.S. region.
Bae brings nearly 20 years of experience in commercial finance, most recently leading the establishment of the Dallas office for ExWorks Capital, a senior secured debt fund.
“Andrew has a proven track record of quickly understanding his clients’ business model and financing requirements to provide the flexible capital they need to grow and thrive,” said David Montiel, head of ABL Originations for White Oak Commercial Finance. “We are pleased to invite Andrew on-board to continue to build White Oak’s presence across the Southwest.”
Prior to joining ExWorks, Bae served as director for the asset-based lending platform at NBH Capital Finance. He previously held various middle market lending positions at large financial institutions including Regions Business Capital, PNC Business Credit, Wachovia Bank (now Wells Fargo) and Citi, where he completed the bank’s formal credit training program.
“White Oak has emerged as a preeminent non-bank lender because of the breadth of its products and its commitment to working with clients to help them achieve their goals,” Bae said. “I’m looking forward to showing clients the benefits of this platform across each segment of the business’ lifecycle.”
Bae is a member of the Association for Corporate Growth, Commercial Finance Association and Turnaround Management Association.
