Capital Bank, a commercial bank in the Washington, D.C. region, launched a new lender finance group, hiring Scott Lisman and Thomas Scott to lead the new line of business. Lisman and Scott previously worked at Pacific Western Bank.
Lisman joined the bank as senior vice president and head of the lender finance group, while Scott will serve as vice president and lender finance group loan officer. Lisman and Scott will report to Scot Browning, president of specialty lending at Capital Bank.
“Based right here in the DMV, the establishment of the lender finance group is a thoughtful and strategic extension of our services,” Browning said. “It reflects our deep-rooted commitment to bolstering similar endeavors within the commercial real estate segment.”
Lisman previously led the lender finance group at Pacific Western Bank, and Scott previously led the same lender finance group’s mortgage rediscount team. Lisman and Scott have nearly three decades of combined lender financing experience.
“Lender financing isn’t just another service addition for us; it’s a key piece of our growing C&I (commercial and industrial) business and begins building a consistent pipeline for deposit growth in the coming years,” Steve Poynot, president of Capital Bank, said.
