Monroe Capital expanded its technology finance originations group with the addition of Jeff Kaye as a managing director. Based in Chicago, Kaye will be responsible for originating, structuring and executing new investments within the software and technology sector.

Prior to Monroe, Kaye was a managing director at Wells Fargo Capital Finance in its financial sponsor coverage group where he was responsible for originating recurring revenue (ARR) and cash flow-based financing opportunities throughout the West and Midwest regions. He has more than 17 years of experience in commercial lending. Kaye began his career with Ally Commercial Finance where he supported origination, underwriting and portfolio management efforts.

“We are very excited to add Jeff to the Monroe Capital originations team,” Tom Aronson, vice chairman and head of originations of Monroe Capital, said. “Jeff has an accomplished career spanning nearly two decades providing financing solutions to middle-market companies in the software and technology sector and brings with him many sponsor relationships. He will help us continue to grow our robust direct origination platform, and specifically the software and technology vertical, that we have built throughout the U.S.”
