Anthony Casciano

Siemens Financial Services, Global CEO of Industry and Healthcare Finance

Anthony Casciano is the CEO of the global Industry and Healthcare Finance businesses for Siemens Financial Services (SFS). He oversees the growth of Siemens Financial Services' activities in the global healthcare and industrial markets and manages the global leveraged finance business across all industries. Anthony was also responsible for the strategy and creation of the global healthcare and leveraged finance business unit after SFS underwent an organizational change in 2011 to better align with Siemens’ core sectors. In addition, he expanded the healthcare finance business, which provides debt and equity solutions to the healthcare industry, into the Asia-Pacific region. To that end, he directed Siemens Financial Services’ participation with Lend Lease as the lead consortium for the public private partnership to design, construct, maintain and finance the Sunshine Coast University Hospital, a new tertiary hospital built in Queensland, Australia. Previously, Anthony was senior vice president and general manager at SFS in North America, establishing SFS’ Corporate Finance Group which specializes in leveraged lending to middle market and larger corporate clients. He led the group’s rapid growth as a key contributor to SFS’s U.S. business success and was involved in several transactions including refinancing of Luminator Technology Group and provision of a loan that enabled Preferred Sands of Genoa to grow its sand mine business in rural Nebraska. SFS’s involvement in transactions such as these helped establish Siemens as a key player in the leveraged finance business. Prior to joining Siemens in 2008, Anthony was managing director and head of DB Mid-Market Capital at Deutsche Bank, where his team focused on leveraged finance opportunities to mid-sized companies. Previous to that, Anthony was the chief sales officer for the commercial and corporate finance business units at CIT and held various leadership positions within GE Capital’s corporate finance businesses.
