Verdant Commercial Capital, LLC has hired Joel Zeller as Capital Markets Relationship Manager. He will work with the Verdant vendor sales team to source on- and off-balance sheet funding for some of Verdant’s high dollar transactions. Zeller has more than 15 years of experience with several Fortune 500 companies in sales, credit, underwriting and management in commercial finance.

“We are thrilled to add Joel to the Verdant team,” said John Merritt, Verdant’s Executive Vice President of Capital Markets. “Joel’s deep background in transaction structuring, risk management and pricing, coupled with his experience in the syndication markets will further enhance Verdant’s ability to continue to say ‘yes’ to our vendor partners through our well-established multi-funder model.”

“I am very excited to join the Verdant team,” said Zeller. “I see abundant opportunity for me to add significant value to our vendor partners by leveraging my credit experience in this syndication role. I believe that our dynamic ability to be agile in the market will help me expand and deepen lender relationships in a way that will accelerate the growth of the company.”
