MAY 11, 2022 - 7:12 am
Honour Capital hired John Gauger as director of capital markets and Rob Munz as vice president of sales. Honour Capital now has a team of 25 professionals with headquarters in Minneapolis, a Philadelphia regional office, a Florida regional office, and a newly added Ohio regional office.
“Honour Capital has experienced remarkable growth since we launched in 2020; we surpassed $100 million in financing in our first full year,” Shea Huston, co-founder of Honour Capital, said. “We have expanded quickly and we have our team to thank for our continued growth. This growth underscores how successfully we are filling the void left by banks and traditional vendor captive financing.”
Gauger came to Honour Capital after 20 years in investment banking, credit sales and commercial banking. He most recently served as senior vice president of commercial banking at U.S. Bank. He gained experience at banking, institutional credit and financial industry firms, such as UBS, Merrill Lynch and Credit Suisse.
“We are pleased to be able to add a director of capital markets to the team,” Brian Slipka, co-founder of Honour Capital, said. “In that role, John Gauger will be bringing expert knowledge and insights that will benefit everyone we work with.”
Munz’s experience includes providing customized capital solutions to middle-market companies and large corporations throughout the Midwest. He came to Honour Capital with more than 15 years of experience delivering equipment finance solutions for aircraft, construction, healthcare, IT, marine, manufacturing, rail and transportation equipment, focusing on transaction sizes of $1 million or more.
“With the addition of Rob Munz to the Honour Capital team, we have been able to expand and strengthen our geographic footprint with a regional office in Ohio,” Slipka said.
“Our growth and the credibility we have established in the marketplace is enabling us to attract top talent like John and Rob,” Huston said. “We feel very blessed.”
