Gibraltar Business Capital has bolstered its team of senior-level credit and asset-based lending professionals with the addition of Jeff Stanek as Executive Vice President. With a proven record of developing and managing strong and diverse portfolio teams, Jeff brings a breadth of expertise in structuring and growing an asset-based portfolio whilst managing carefully for risk.
Jeff is skilled at leading an experienced team in managing risk and credit policy while keeping a focus on enhancing client relationships. His tenure at Wells Fargo Capital Finance as a seasoned commercial lender provided him in-depth experience in all aspects of asset-based lending from origination through problem loan management. In addition to his 20 years of experience with Wells Fargo Capital Finance, Jeff managed and grew portfolios for Fremont Financial, Finova, and Guaranty Business Credit.
Most recently he managed 20+ members of 6 portfolio teams in Georgia, North Carolina, and Texas with P&L responsibility for Wells Fargo Capital Finance’s south regional ABL group. He led the charge in attracting, coaching, and retaining a robust credit team. He also contributed to growing an ABL portfolio by effectively collaborating with diverse internal and external partners and stakeholders. Throughout his seasoned ABL career, he has built a reputation for fostering strong relationships across the industry.
“Jeff’s depth of expertise with more than 28 years working with asset-based credit facilities — including managing a mixed range of portfolios — is a welcomed addition to GBC’s bench of seasoned credit professionals,” said Gibraltar Business Capital CEO Scott Winicour. “His aptitude for nurturing relationships across the industry aligns with GBC’s focus on solving challenges and fueling growth for our clients throughout any stage of the business lifecycle.”
