Wingspire Capital hired Dave Turco as a managing director on its business development team. Turco is based in Boston and will assist in expanding Wingspire Capital’s national presence by originating senior secured credit facilities for private and publicly traded companies in the Northeast.

Most recently, Turco worked as a business development officer for Context Business Lending, where he engaged in marketing efforts and sourced asset-based loans for middle-market borrowers to establish Context Business Lending’s presence throughout the Northeast and Midwest. Prior to that, he worked for AloStar Capital Finance, where he originated asset-based lending and specialty finance transactions for middle-market borrowers in the Northeast. Before AloStar, Turco worked at GE Capital, where he was responsible for sourcing asset-backed, leveraged cash flow and unitranche transactions for middle-market borrowers throughout the Midwest.

“We are thrilled to have Dave Turco join the Wingspire team,” James Garlick, head of originations for Wingspire Capital, said. “We view him as a significant strategic asset in our go-to-market strategy and believe that his high energy and expertise in devising creative asset-backed solutions will have an immediate impact and contribute to the continued success of our business.”
