Capital One announced it has named Mak Kern as a Director on its Food, Beverage & Agriculture (FB&A) specialty banking team. The FB&A group specializes in leveraged lending and full-service corporate banking to private, public and sponsor-backed companies across the entire food value-chain. In addition to corporate lending, it provides a range of corporate services, including treasury management, corporate card, derivatives, foreign exchange and more.
“Mak will be working closely with Managing Director Rich Collins to expand our presence on the West Coast,” said Paul Baisley, Managing Director and Head of Food, Beverage & Agriculture at Capital One. “His experience will make him a valuable member of this team.”

Although Capital One has a long history of serving the food and beverage industry, it formally launched the FB&A specialty group in 2018 to better serve this vertical.

Kern joins Capital One from City National Bank, where, as a Senior Vice President in its food and beverage group, he provided leveraged finance and traditional senior secured loans to a variety of industry segments, including branded and private label ingredient manufacturers, vertically integrated grower/packers, and wineries and vineyards. Before moving to City National, he was a strategic Purchasing Manager at Nestlé USA.
