KeyBank Business Capital Expands Midwest Team

May 07, 2015, 08:00 AM

KeyBank Business Capital continues to expand its Midwest asset based lending (ABL) team with the addition of Senior Vice President Ben Pugliesi. Pugliesi will work with businesses located in Michigan, northern Indiana and northwest Ohio from his base in Southfield, MI.

“We’re excited to add Ben to our growing asset based lending team,” said Laurie Muller-Girard “Ben can draw on his extensive banking experience as well as his experience as a business owner to help our customers with ABL solutions.”

Pugliesi joins KeyBank Business Capital from PNC Business Credit, where he was a senior vice president. Prior to joining PNC, he was a director of the automotive group for GMAC Commercial Finance LLC. He also was president and owner of a home care business.

“I am impressed with KeyBank’s commitment to servicing middle market companies and excited to be a part of the continued expansion of Key’s commercial banking team in Michigan,” Pugliesi said.

Pugliesi is a member of the Association of Corporate Growth and the Turnaround Management Association.  He received his BA in economics and management from Albion College and his MBA-Finance from Indiana University.

KeyCorp was organized more than 160 years ago and is headquartered in Cleveland, Ohio.  One of the nation's largest bank-based financial services companies, Key had assets of approximately $94 billion.

Key provides deposit, lending, cash management and investment services to individuals and small and mid-sized businesses in 12 states under the name KeyBank National Association.  Key also provides a broad range of sophisticated corporate and investment banking products, such as merger and acquisition advice, public and private debt and equity, syndications and derivatives to middle market companies in selected industries throughout the United States under the KeyBanc Capital Markets trade name.
