August 16, 2016, 07:15 AM

Wintrust Commercial Finance (WCF), part of Wintrust Financial, announced that Olayinka “Ola” Sanusi and Ken Andreozzi joined the division’s direct originations group. Ola will be located in San Francisco focusing on direct originations in the west region. Ken will be located in Philadelphia. Both will join the national team led by WCF Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Joe Thompson.

“We are rounding out our core direct team. Ola brings tremendous energy and very solid technical skills, which will be invaluable in building out our West Coast presence,” said Thompson. “I have known Ken for over 20 years. His approach to customers and transactions fits well with our business model. He understands our target market and knows how to structure transactions that meet both our customer needs as well as WCF lending criteria.”

Sanusi brings 10 years of commercial finance experience, global management, auditing and IT experience to WCF, including positions at GE Capital and JP Morgan Chase. Before joining the team, he was vice president – relationship manager at JP Morgan Chase covering the northern California market. Andreozzi has had a distinguished career with Finova, Merrill Lynch Capital, as well as Peoples Capital, GE Capital, and Transamerica.

“Anyone who has built a team knows how demanding and rewarding it can be,” Thompson went on to say. “With a couple other forthcoming announcements, I am happy to say we are fully staffed in our direct origination platform for this year. Our plan is to finish the year strong and continue our momentum going into 2017.”
