“Jeffrey is an accomplished relationship manager with close to 20 years of industry experience and longstanding relationships in the region,” said Justin Piot, Central Region Vice President at WCF. “His hire during these uncertain times exhibits our continued commitment to expand our reach to middle market companies. We’re thrilled to have Jeff on the team.”
