“Craig brings a high level skill set and middle market expertise to our branch system,” said John Delaney. “He has worked throughout the Bay Area and has strong relationships and an outstanding knowledge level in the commercial real estate and C&I lending which is vitally important to small and medium-sized businesses.”

During his career, he has worked closely with manufacturers, wholesalers, contractors and service businesses, including medical and financial professionals. He also has significant experience with manufacturers, real estate investors, high net worth individuals and non-profit organizations.
 
“Throughout my career, I have provided guidance to middle market companies seeking financing products to help them grow,” he said. “Coupled with my experience throughout the Bay Area, I am looking forward to working closely with customers who often find large banks too impersonal and rigid. The opportunity to work with Beacon, which emphasizes personal interaction and flexibility with customers, is very important to me.”
