KeyBank continues to expand its asset-based lending expertise with the addition of middle market banker Karen A. Grexa. She joins KeyBank Business Capital from JP Morgan Chase.

Grexa, who is based in one of KeyBank’s midtown New York offices, works with the owners of middle market,  mid cap companies and private equity funds dedicated to middle market investments located in Connecticut, New Jersey, New York state, Vermont and Maine.

“Middle market and mid cap business owners are increasingly optimistic about their prospects for growth and want ways to finance that growth,” Muller Girard said. “We know Karen’s strong ABL background will benefit middle market and mid cap business owners planning to expand.”

“I am impressed with KeyBank’s strong platform and targeted focus on middle market and mid cap borrowers and look forward to introducing business owners to the bank’s exceptional middle market services,” Grexa said.
