Santander Bank announced that technology, media and telecommunications (TMT) banking veteran Laura Fazio has been appointed to head TMT Banking in its Commercial Banking division. Laura is responsible for leading the Commercial Bank's national strategy and investment across the TMT sector. She is based in New York City and reports to Robert Rubino, Santander's co-president and head of Commercial Banking.

"With more than 25 years of experience working with TMT clients, Laura understands the nuances of working with companies in this sector and is the perfect leader to head this business," said Rubino. "Laura's addition underscores the continued investment we are making in our corporate finance and capital markets expertise in order to deliver value-added ideas and solutions to clients domestically and internationally."

As the managing principal, she advised small cap and middle market technology, media and entertainment companies seeking strategic advisory solutions as well as structured capital investment from institutional investors. Prior to Twin Oaks Advisors, Fazio worked at Aladdin Capital Management where she was managing director and head of telecom, media and technology. Before Aladdin Capital Management, Fazio worked at Deutsche Bank where she headed media and entertainment structured product and Dresdner Kleinwort where she headed TMT capital markets and corporate finance. She led over $5 billion in structured debt and equity financing for the TMT sector at those two organizations.

Fazio earned a B.A. from American University and an MBA from the Thunderbird School of Global Management at Arizona State University.
