Texas Capital Bank hired Scott Kuhn, David Roeder and James Sult to launch its national public finance practice.
The team provides private-placement financing to state agencies, local governments, school districts and nonprofits for capital projects. The new practice illustrates the Texas Capital Bank’s continued plans to grow both within its core Texas footprint and across the country.
“We are thrilled to expand our public-finance coverage from coast to coast,” said Keith Cargill, president and CEO of Texas Capital Bank. “As a bank, we are committed to building prosperity in communities, and public entities and nonprofits are critical to our towns and cities.”
According to Sult, who serves as senior relationship manager, the new team has gotten off to a strong start, funding more than two dozen new loans since the bank launched the practice last September.
“Our team’s significant and unique experience in the public-finance industry coupled with Texas Capital Bank’s entrepreneurial culture has allowed for our early success,” Sult said. “We have the platform to provide creative financing structures and superior execution to our customers.”
