John Williams joined Gibraltar Business Capital’s business development team as a vice president of the Midwest region, covering Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky and the Chicagoland area.

In his new role, Williams is responsible for the origination of new loan relationships across the Midwest region. John will report to Mike Conrad, a veteran ABL SVP focused on developing ongoing value-added relationships with restructuring advisors, investment bankers, private equity groups and other transaction-oriented professionals.

As a dynamic finance professional with more than 10 years of experience spanning corporate credit, deal origination, mergers and acquisitions, finance and portfolio management, Williams’ ability to balance aggressive growth strategies with disciplined risk management will support GBC’s diverse and evolving business.

Prior to joining Gibraltar, Williams held a variety of origination and portfolio management roles with PNC Bank, delivering both asset based and cash flow lending across a broad range of industries in the middle market. His decade-long experience in commercial credit allows him to provide innovative solutions for prospective borrowers.

“In addition to his strong credit skills, John brings an unmatched enthusiasm for business development and a set of strengths perfectly suited for success as a sales professional within our organization.” Anthony DiChiara, head of sales at Gibraltar, said. “His extensive efforts building and maintaining industry professional relationships, while executing on complex transactions, will serve our robust client base well.”
