Encina Business Credit promoted Tron Allen to chief commercial officer.

Allen most recently served as Encina Business Credit’s executive managing director and central region leader. He joined the company in connection with its March 2016 launch as a senior managing director focused on business development efforts in the Southwest region. Prior to that, Allen provided strategic advice to clients on capital structure alternatives as an investment banker at both BKD Corporate Finance and Deloitte Corporate Finance. Allen also previously held a variety of business development and operating roles at GE Capital and JP Morgan Chase.

In connection with Allen’s promotion, Rob McMahon, who has served as Encina Business Credit’s interim chief commercial officer since January 2018, will return full-time in July of 2021 to his previous role as chief operating officer at Encina Capital Partners.

“Tron has been a significant contributor to our company’s success in the five years since launch,” Marty Battaglia, CEO of Encina Business Credit, said. “He has represented us extremely well in the marketplace as a senior business development officer and has proven over the past year that he’s a gifted manager and leader, so this promotion represents a logical next step in Tron’s career progression.”

“I’m also grateful for the very meaningful contributions that Rob McMahon has made over the past three years as our interim chief commercial officer,” Battaglia said. “Rob has helped me to hire a top-notch direct sales force and implement the appropriate technology tools and processes to maximize the productivity of our business development efforts. This is an opportune time for Rob to hand over the reins so that Tron can help drive EBC’s next stage of growth through his direct experience and leadership of our sales and marketing organization.”
