Business Capital added Matt Christensen as senior vice president and team lead. He will assist the capital markets and credit teams in expanding coverage and service to clients, work with partners to structure and deploy commercial financing and restructure solutions for small to mid-sized businesses.

Christensen has more than 25 years of experience and has served at GE Capital, Bank of America/Merrill Lynch, Opus Bank, Bridge Bank and City National Bank. He has served in business development, relationship management and credit underwriting capacities.

“We are very excited to have added such a well-known and experienced member to our firm. Matt has led teams in a wide variety of deal environments, including recessionary times, and has completed over $2.5 billion in transactions. Deals have spanned M&A activity and leveraged buyouts to conforming asset-based loans, DIPs and restructurings. Matt is a proven winner and our clients and partners will immediately benefit from his vast experience in commercial finance,” Chuck Doyle, managing director of Business Capital, said. “Our highest priority is fast effective response and, as we navigate through these uncertain times stemming from the COVID-19 impact, we believe Matt’s expertise will add great value to our ability to deliver the best financial solutions in the shortest possible time. Our clients will be able to spend more time on revenue generating opportunities and less on financial challenges.”
