KeyBank Names State Assistant General Counsel to Coordinate Legal Affairs for Key Equipment Finance

KeyBank named John F. State assistant general counsel. In this role, State will be responsible for coordinating the legal affairs of Key Equipment Finance. He will be based in Albany, NY.

Most recently, State was in private practice with the New York law firm of Cullen and Dykman in its Albany, NY, office. As a partner in the firm’s banking and financial services practice, he represented banks and non-bank lenders in complex commercial financing matters, including equipment leasing and finance transactions, asset-based lending transactions and commercial lending transactions.

“This role is a return to Key for John, who brings over 30 years of experience in the equipment finance industry, including a prior 10-year stint with Key, when he served as senior vice president and general counsel of Key Equipment Finance,” Tom Wise, senior vice president and associate general counsel for KeyBank, said. “We’re delighted to welcome him back.”
