Rockland Trust added Slayton Purcell to its asset-based lending team as vice president, relationship manager. In his role, Purcell is responsible for managing a growing portfolio of clients while underwriting and building new relationships.

Prior to joining Rockland Trust, Purcell worked for Pitney Bowes Bank as the associate director of corporate lending, where he was a vital contributor to the successful buildout of a new loan portfolio in a de novo line of business. Purcell began his banking and lending career with Wells Fargo, where he spent nearly ten years. Starting as a teller, he grew his career and took on expanded responsibilities, and soon after, advanced into portfolio management and underwriting for large corporate clients.

“It is a pleasure to welcome Slayton to our asset-based lending team,” Joe Herzog, senior vice president of specialized lending at Rockland Trust, said. “Slayton’s strong work ethic and commercial lending experience will help us continue to expand our robust asset-based lending services throughout the Northeast.”
