Dext Capital expanded its credit team, adding Chris Miller as senior credit officer and Kyle McGuigan as junior credit officer.
“Due to strong market reception we have far surpassed our initial expectations. The expansion of our credit team will help support our continued growth and ensure we meet the needs of our partners,” said Scott Eshleman, chief risk officer of Dext Capital.
Miller has an extensive background in credit with Bank of the West, U.S. Bank, and most recently at Umpqua Bank, where he was responsible for underwriting equipment finance requests up to $15 million. He also brings portfolio management experience to Dext as well as general business skills from his time as a small business owner.
McGuigan is a recent graduate of Oregon State University where he graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Finance. He immersed himself in the college experience maintaining various positions within the Finance Club, Phi Gamma Delta, and Alpha Kappa Psi.
Both Miller and McGuigan will work from Dext’s Portland, OR headquarters.
Dext Capital is a privately-owned independent equipment finance company founded by a team of industry veterans with strong financial sponsorship from Sightway Capital, a Two Sigma company.
