What made the project Beka Credit appealing to you?
First of all, the talent at Beka Credit, from the top down, is extremely impressive. When you put together a group of individuals with this much experience and motivation, success at Beka Credit will not be by coincidence. It was built to succeed, and expectations are very high.
Also, I feel very close to the overall objective of Beka Credit and its mandate to provide alternative means of financing to small and medium sized businesses.
Growing up in a small rural town in the United States, I know how important these businesses are to their communities, and this type of financing has not always been available to Spain and other parts of Europe.
I want to see these businesses succeed, not only for the benefit of Beka Credit and its investors, but also for these employees, their families and the overall general health of the spanish economy.
What is your role at Beka Credit?
I have been incorporated within the finance team here at Beka Credit, and within this team I get to work alongside a fantastic group of individuals creating these credit funds from point A all the way to point Z. It is an unique opportunity.
Not only is the work interesting and challenging, but I get to go through this process with a great group of individuals within my team.
Also, I have responsibilities around investor relations. As of now, our investors reside outside of Spain, and as an expat, I believe I can leverage my experience working in the United States and, more specifically, working and managing the relationships of our institutional clients.
How have your first days been at Beka Finance?
My first few days at Beka Credit have been phenomenal. It's been a pleasure getting to know my coworkers. It's a very inviting place to work, as well as an entrepreneurial mindset. Also, within Beka Credit, this is an exciting time to start. We're in a period of exceptional growth. Our first fund was finalized in May, called Triana, and this year we plan to launch three more funds.
I've learned a lot during these first few days at Beka Finance, and I can tell you that the opportunity we have in front of us is clear, it's exciting and extensive.
