Wilmington Trust announced the addition of five new team members to the Project Finance Agency Services business within Global Capital Markets (GCM) – Stephanie Li, Rafael Miranda, Amedeo Morreale, Kevin Pennant, and Bobby Reyes. The team will report directly to Will Marder, Head of Project Finance.  

"We are thrilled to welcome these professionals with such a robust combined resume of experience and success in the project finance sector," said Marder. "Their addition brings tremendous knowledge to the Wilmington Trust team, and we look forward to leveraging their capabilities and insights to help us continue delivering the high-quality service our clients have come to expect, while growing our award-winning project finance offering. We see significant opportunities in the project finance sector, driven by the continued focus on ESG and renewable energy, as well as the infrastructure build-out supported by recent U.S. legislation."

Li, Miranda, Morreale, Pennant and Reyes join from MUFG, one of the most active lenders in the project finance sector. The group also brings collective experience from other leading corporate trust shops, having served in various positions at Bank of New York/Mellon, US Bank, Wells Fargo and Deutsche Bank. Together, they bring over 100 years of experience in corporate trust and banking.

Miranda, Morreale and Pennant join Wilmington Trust as relationship managers and will be responsible for closing new transactions and managing portfolios of existing project finance transactions.  Meanwhile, Li joins as a client administrator, where  she will be responsible for assisting the relationship managers in their day-to-day transaction management activities.  Reyes joins as a unit manager, where he will be focused on control, compliance, and training for the overall team. Together, this group brings the skill-set and the bandwidth necessary to continue growing Wilmington Trust's project finance business.  

"Our corporate trust team has seen significant deal flow in the project finance sector.  We are looking forward to expanding on this growth, as we leverage the experience and strong client contacts that come from these new team members," said Abby Mrozinski, Head of Global Capital Markets. "Bringing on this core group demonstrates our commitment to this space, and the significant investment  we are continuing to make in our Project Finance Agency Services team."

"I'm incredibly excited to have these experienced professionals join us, as they bring a highly specialized background along with strong client relationships," said Doug Lavelle, Project Finance Sales Leader. "Their insights and industry connections will help us reinforce our commitment to the project finance sector and expand our footprint to new areas across infrastructure, power and renewables."
