On Tuesday, June 26, GTE was grateful to have Ron DiBiase come into the office and talk about his experience with commercial banking. Ron is very familiar with the GTE team and the work that they do as he was the one who provided senior financing for a deal that was recently closed.
Ron began his career after receiving his bachelor’s degree from Seton Hill University in Mathematics and Accounting. His first job was as a Credit Analyst for First Commonwealth Bank and currently he serves as a Vice President Corporate Banker at First Commonwealth. While speaking about his experience, he covered and explained many topics that gave insight to the type of work he has been exposed to. These varied from syndication, managing his own portfolio, financial covenants, mezzanine debt, and what it is like to serve middle market businesses.
Ron answered a wide array of questions that the interns asked regarding topics such as working at a smaller bank vs larger bank similar, certain financial metrics and measurements related to his work, and his own opinion and experience with the work life balance within the industry. Thanks, Ron!
