EverBank Expands Newly Launched Fund Finance Division

EverBank added five new members to its recently launched fund finance division, including Gabrielle Buckner, Chris Grier, Storey Whalen and Alexa Schult as directors and Ryan Burke as vice president.

Buckner has a decade of banking experience primarily focused on fund finance and structured products. Prior to EverBank, she served as a director at Wells Fargo.

Grier has 12 years of fund finance experience and joined EverBank following prior roles in origination, structuring and syndications at Silicon Valley Bank and Bank of America. Grier is a CFA Charterholder.

Whalen has seven years of experience supporting global large-cap sponsors, as well as emerging and middle-market firms. Prior to EverBank, she served as a senior director at First Republic Bank.

Schult has a decade of fund finance banking experience and previously served as a director at First Republic Bank. She was awarded the Fund Finance Association’s Rising Star Award in 2020.

Burke has five years of fund finance experience and joined EverBank from Wells Fargo. Prior to his career in banking, he served as an officer with the U.S. Navy for eight years.

“The launch of the new EverBank brand and our fund finance division underscore a fresh chapter of transformation and growth for our company,” Mike Mascia, co-head of the fund finance division at EverBank, said. “As we look to build our business, these impressive leaders will help us deepen our network across the industry and expand our capacity to provide exceptional service to our clients. I can’t wait to get to work together with all of them.”

“We have assembled an experienced team of fund finance bankers that will give us a running start as we expand this new division,” Jeff Johnston, co-head of the fund finance division at EverBank, said. “In this uncertain market with higher rates and fewer exit opportunities, sponsors are seeing the benefits of flexible financing solutions that enable them to serve their fund investors better. Having leaders who deeply understand our clients’ businesses and financing needs gives us an incredible advantage as we grow.”
