Justin began his commercial lending career with LaSalle Bank and Bank of America. His C&I and commercial real estate loan workout experience includes senior positions with money center banks including Harris Bank and Credit Agricole. Justin also managed numerous "consent order" community bank turnaround projects over the past ten years, with an extraordinary track record of successfully challenging bank regulators, resolving complex non-performing asset issues and recapitalizing banks.
