February 24, 2021, 08:10 AM

BOK Financial announced Kaushik Ponnusamy has been named the successor to retiring Evans Swann and will assume the role of managing director of loan syndications for the organization. Ponnusamy will lead the firm’s existing team of high-quality syndicators and oversee multi-bank marketing efforts across the company from the organization’s office in Dallas.

“Kaushik is acutely aligned with the BOK Financial vision of syndications,” said Scott Andrews, senior vice president and chief operating officer for the Commercial Division. “Since joining BOK Financial, Kaushik’s contributions to our syndication effort have been remarkable. I have full confidence in his ability to further our relationship-driven approach, reinforcing the team’s role as a value-added partner in the strategy and execution of multi-bank credit facilities.”

Ponnusamy brings significant expertise to the role, with extensive experience syndicating loans across all disciplines of commercial lending, arranging billions of dollars in bank loan financings. He joined BOK Financial in 2017 and was instrumental in growing the firm’s syndications efforts within the Commercial Real Estate line of business. In 2020 BOK Financial was ranked the number 10 CRE bookrunner by number of deals, placing more than $550 million in CRE transactional volume (source: REFINITIV, 2021). Ponnusamy will continue to structure, originate, and distribute multi-bank transactions across all industries, and further develop BOK Financial’s capital markets capabilities.

Prior to his time with BOK Financial, Ponnusamy spent nearly a decade with regional bank syndications desks and understands the uniqueness and opportunities associated with syndicated finance in the middle market space. He earned a Bachelor of Science in Finance from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, College of Business.
