Triumph Bancorp Names Brenner New CEO of Triumph Business Capital


Triumph Bancorp has named Geoffrey P. Brenner chief executive officer of Triumph Business Capital. Brenner joins Triumph Business Capital after serving 10 years as president and chief executive officer of TPC, a nationally recognized healthcare services company based in Plano, Texas.

“Geoff is a proven executive leader who brings to Triumph Business Capital a strong focus on company culture and a disciplined approach that integrates clearly defined goals, transparent accountability and an unrelenting focus on performance metrics,” said Aaron P. Graft, vice chairman and chief executive officer of Triumph Bancorp, Inc.

“I believe Geoff’s skills will be a great complement to George Thorson, president and chief operating officer, and the entire Triumph Business Capital senior executive team, who have already accomplished great things,” Graft continued. “Geoff exemplifies the servant leadership that has been a hallmark of Triumph’s success thus far, and I have no doubt he will ably lead us into the future.”

Executive chairman of Triumph Business Capital, Steven J. Hausman, added, “Geoff has demonstrated a leadership dynamic that complements both our culture and market opportunity. We see him empowering a skilled and talented organization. Particularly as the velocity of technology disruption continues to increase, Geoff’s managerial discipline and energy will help our team bring more and more value to the marketplace we serve.”

While leading TPC, Brenner drove the organization to consistently produce best-in-class performance results related to operations and customer satisfaction. As CEO, he improved operating margins from one percent to more than 40, while growing EBITDA by 260 percent, all while facing repeated cycles of unprecedented industry disruption.

“I am deeply honored and excited to join a company with such a hyper focus on growth, and one that continually works to provide greater value to business owners by making it easier to access working capital and other necessary business services,” said Brenner. “Triumph is a proven industry leader in its space and for good reason. Our customer-first approach will continue to inform and motivate our growth strategy, both through our talented team and our industry-first integrations and technological solutions.”
