Blake Joins Bridge Bank Equity Fund Resources Group


Bridge Bank has hired Westin Brake as portfolio manager in its Equity Fund Resources group (EFR).

Blake will be responsible for growing and managing the EFR subscription book of business as well as capital call lines of credit for SBICs and private equity and venture capital funds.

He joins Bridge Bank with seven years of experience in working with PE/VC funds. Most recently, Blake was assistant vice president in Citi Private Bank’s Sponsor Finance group. Prior to that, he worked in the Equity Fund Services group at Comerica Bank.

“Westin has previously worked with several members of our EFR team and I am excited to welcome him,” said Guy Simpson, managing director of Bridge Bank’s Equity Fund Resources group. “Westin’s experience with private equity subscription deals, one of the growing sectors of EFR, will have him hit the ground running.”
