“Carl’s position in Ohio complements his counterpart who serves our Pennsylvania markets,’ said Keith Bufano, SBA Lending Executive for First Commonwealth. “Not only is Carl an SBA specialist, but he’s also a former business owner. He brings a unique perspective because he’s been in our customer’s shoes and knows the challenges they face every day. We’re really excited to welcome Carl to the team.”

Before joining First Commonwealth, Carl was a Commercial Loan Officer for a regional bank. His career has focused on commercial and business banking, as well as commercial insurance – including several years as an agency owner. Carl is based in Ohio and guides customers and prospects as they obtain government-guaranteed loans.

Carl earned a Bachelor’s degree in Music from Central Michigan University.
