Serenkin is an experienced financial professional with more than 35 years of experience in all aspects of asset-based lending and corporate finance industry including business development, financial analysis, underwriting, portfolio management and operations.

“Having Eric join our team is an exciting step in our growth strategy for the ABL Eastern Region,” said John Nooney, EVP and ABL Eastern division manager. “We have recently expanded our regional headquarters in Atlanta and were looking to expand our business development coverage throughout the Northeast Region. Eric’s extensive background and knowledge of the local asset-based market is the right combination to lead the Northeast’s origination growth platform.”

Serenkin’s appointment comes at the heal of a banner 2012 for the ABL Eastern Region including nearly $40 million in credit lines originated in the fourth quarter alone.

I look forward to the opportunity to lead business development throughout the Northeast Region and have a successful year of new business strategic relationships.”
