WINTER HAVEN, Fla., Nov. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- CenterState Banks, Inc. (NASDAQ: CSFL) today announced that it has hired Ignacio Solveyra as Senior Credit Analyst to manage a team of credit analysts and support National Commercial and Industrial (C&I) loan purchases and sales at CenterState Bank ("CenterState"). Mr. Solveyra previously served as Senior Credit Analyst at PCBB Capital Markets and will now be responsible for helping to manage the origination and portfolio maintenance for the National-to-Local loan sales program for CenterState and its nationwide network of correspondent banks.
"National C&I offers diversification away from real estate, lower debt leverage than commercial real estate lending and has better performance than the average community bank loan exposure," said Ignacio. "CenterState, with its industry expertise, balance sheet and national correspondent banking platform, is perfectly positioned to assist community banks in utilizing C&I loans to manage risk and achieve their earnings goals."
Prior to PCBB Capital Markets, Mr. Solveyra held senior credit positions at BNP Paribas Fortis. This experience provided a strong credit background to complement current duties in loan selection, active credit management and underwriting. Prior to Fortis, Mr. Solveyra worked as an Executive Officer at Union Bank of California and was in corporate banking with ABN Amro Bank. Mr. Solveyra has a Bachelor of Economics degree from the University of Belgrano in Argentina.
"Ignacio has a long history in this sector and further expands the capabilities of the most experienced correspondent C&I platform in the market today," said Chris Nichols, CenterState Bank's Chief Strategy Officer.
