MAY 8, 2017 - 7:20 am
Russell Murray joined Stonebriar Commercial Finance as managing director of Originations – Canada. Based in Toronto, Russell will manage both direct and indirect originations efforts throughout Canada.
Prior to joining Stonebriar, Murray served in various direct and indirect origination capacities as well as in credit and operations for TD Equipment Finance, AIG Commercial Asset Finance, GE Commercial Finance and Siemens Financial Services.
“Russell brings 25-plus years’ experience structuring secured loan and lease solutions in Canada. As alternatives for non-bank financing have become more limited in recent years, I am optimistic that Russell’s direct and referral source relationships will drive opportunities for Stonebriar to help Canadian companies with their capital projects,” said Kyle Parks, Stonebriar’s head of Direct Originations. “We are thrilled to add a professional of Russell’s caliber to our team.”
“I am excited to be a part of the Stonebriar team and to reconnect with former colleagues who I hold in high regard,” Murray said. “Having been actively engaged in Canada’s commercial finance industry for decades, it is my strong sense that the Stonebriar value proposition will be well received by our targeted borrowers and lessees. I’m very much looking forward to bringing Stonebriar’s broad and unique capabilities to the Canadian market.”
