EverBank, formerly TIAA Bank, announced the addition of five experienced leaders to its recently launched Fund Finance division.

As EverBank expands its capabilities in fund finance under the leadership of industry veterans Jeff Johnston and Mike Mascia, these five individuals will strengthen the bank’s ability to support alternative asset managers and the private capital community’s fund-level financing needs.

The new hires are:

  • Gabrielle Buckner, Director: Gabrielle Buckner brings a decade of banking experience primarily focused on Fund Finance and Structured Products. Prior to EverBank, she served as a Director at Wells Fargo.
  • Chris Grier, CFA, Director: Chris Grier has 12 years of fund finance experience and joins EverBank following prior roles in origination, structuring, and syndications at Silicon Valley Bank and Bank of America. Grier is a CFA Charterholder.
  • Storey Whalen, Director: Storey Whalen brings seven years’ experience supporting global large-cap sponsors, as well as emerging and middle market firms. Prior to EverBank, she served as a Senior Director at First Republic Bank.
  • Alexa Schult, Director: Alexa Schult has a decade of fund finance banking experience, and previously served as a Director at First Republic Bank. She was awarded the Fund Finance Association’s Rising Star Award in 2020.
  • Ryan Burke, Vice President: Ryan Burke brings five years of fund finance experience and joins EverBank from Wells Fargo. Prior to his career in banking, he served as an officer with the United States Navy for eight years.

“The launch of the new EverBank brand and our Fund Finance division underscore a fresh chapter of transformation and growth for our company,” said Mascia. “As we look to build our business, these impressive leaders will help us deepen our network across the industry and expand our capacity to provide exceptional service to our clients. I can’t wait to get to work together with all of them."

"We have assembled an experienced team of fund finance bankers that will give us a running start as we expand this new division,” added Johnston. “In this uncertain market with higher rates and fewer exit opportunities, sponsors are seeing the benefits of flexible financing solutions that enable them to serve their fund investors better. Having leaders who deeply understand our clients’ businesses and financing needs gives us an incredible advantage as we grow."
