Mexican lender Credijusto has named Eduardo Mendoza executive vice president and head of Capital Markets & Corporate Development.

The appointment comes soon after Credijusto’s closing of a $100 million warehouse line with Goldman Sachs, which Mendoza was instrumental in closing.

The securitization and asset-backed finance specialist had been working as an advisor to Credijusto since 2017, but the move to bring him in-house represents part of a broader buildup of the company’s capital markets team and activity. Mendoza will be tasked with securing further warehouse facilities, launching a credit fund and implementing a securitization program.

Mendoza previously co-founded SQN Latina, an equipment leasing platform, and was a managing director on the securitization-banking team at BMO Capital. Other previous employers include BBVA Bancomer and Santander Mexico. He completed more than 70 transactions in his 25-year investment banking career, ranging from public and private asset-backed term securitizations to fund finance, CLO, corporate and real estate debt transactions — many of which were cross-border.

Mexico City-based Credijusto provides affordable asset-backed loans and equipment leases to the SME segment.
