Stonebriar CF Promotes Smith, Adds Carter

August 31, 2020, 07:22 AM

Stonebriar Commercial Finance announce the promotion of Harrison P. Smith to Vice President, Credit Manager. Stonebriar hired Smith as a junior Credit Analyst in 2015. Smith has successfully assumed progressively greater responsibilities in complex transactions and other projects in support of Stonebriar’s business, all while earning his MBA from Southern Methodist University’s Cox School of Business.

He has earned the respect and appreciation of our customers, Stonebriar senior managers and his peers. In his new role, Smith will mentor and manage other emerging talent, helping to align Stonebriar with the ELFA’s emerging talent initiative to grow and invest in a new generation of future leaders.

Stonebriar also announced that Owen Carter has joined the company as Credit Analyst, reporting to Smith. Carter graduated from Southern Methodist University’s Cox School of Business in May 2020 followed by a summer internship with capital markets adviser, CSG Investments. He also completed an internship with private equity advisor, LP Analyst.

Jeff Wilkison, Chief Risk Officer, noted: “Harrison has been a model employee from his very first day; exceeding expectations; always a team player with an exemplary work ethic. Further, we are pleased to have the opportunity to attract and hire a high-quality candidate such as Owen. As a testament to Owen’s character and tenacity, he is an Eagle Scout, an honor earned by only 4 percent of all Boy Scouts. I am confident he will thrive at Stonebriar and develop into a strong contributor to Stonebriar’s success.”

Dave B. Fate, Stonebriar CEO, stated: “We are pleased to be able to reward Harrison and empower him to mentor others. Harrison will continue to excel in our organization as he assumes more responsibility. We are also excited that Owen Carter has agreed to join our team and look forward to what he will bring to SCF as we continue to invest in young talent.”
