This past April, Carter Bank added banking veteran Justin Barr to its Credit Administration team, to serve as SVP, Regional Credit Executive and Special Assets Director.
Barr’s career has included senior special assets positions with such national commercial lenders as CoBank and BMO Harris, as well as extensive financial advisory experience leading turn-around consulting projects and as an expert witness. Recognized as a restructuring expert, he has been widely quoted by leading financial news outlets, including the American Banker.
A third-generation alum of Indiana University, Barr brings more than 30 years of commercial banking and restructuring experience to Carter Bank.
“I couldn’t be more pleased to join the impressive credit administration team at Carter Bank and look forward to contributing to the bank’s continuing success in the dynamic and growing markets that it serves,” Barr said.
Carter Bank’s SEVP and Chief Credit Officer Tony Kallsen said adding Barr to the credit team allows Carter to expand both its services and its footprint.
“I am delighted to welcome Justin Barr to the Carter Bank family,” Kallsen said. “Justin has tremendous depth and breadth in the field of restructuring and insolvency and his leadership will greatly enhance the bank’s commercial and consumer workout practices.
“Additionally, Justin’s background and experience provide us with an opportunity to expand our credit delivery model by introducing him as a Regional Credit Executive responsible for adjudicating complex commercial loan requests in the Raleigh MSA, an important and emerging market for us.”
