The Tygris Commercial Finance Group named Lawrence G. Hund as its chief financial officer. Hund will oversee all of Tygris treasury, accounting, tax, planning and analysis and financial operations.
Hund will be a member of the Tygris executive committee and report to Frederick Wolfert, Chief Executive Officer of Tygris.
Larry is a natural fit for Tygris as we continue to build out the management team with industry veterans that bring together a deep understanding of the commercial finance and banking industries, Wolfert said. The combination of his expertise in building a finance organization and his banking and commercial finance industry experience will be valuable as we continue to execute on our growth plans.
I am excited to be joining Tygris in the midst of this historic period for the banking and commercial finance industries, Hund said. Tygris is uniquely positioned to provide liquidity and growth capital during the current credit crisis and I look forward to working alongside its talented management team in the creation of a leading commercial finance franchise.
Before Tygris, Hund was vice president and chief financial officer of Bridge Finance Group. Hund was previously vice president of operations and chief financial officer at Harley- Davidson Financial Services, and served in different senior leadership positions, including executive vice president and controller at Heller Financial. He began his career at Arthur Young & Co.
