An economics and communications studies graduate of Hamilton College in Clinton, N.Y., she held senior-level positions in the mortgage industry before joining SVB in 2007 as a relationship manager.
She’s been a client favorite for her ability to anticipate needs and develop innovative solutions to meet those needs. Among her many accomplishments: structuring a $12.5 million financing solution for a rapidly growing, high-profile business with a line of credit that offered the flexibility, availability and documentation its leaders needed to successfully expand into a new U.K.-based market.
Krista divides her leisure time between warm-and-fuzzy and adrenaline-pumping endeavors. She’s a puppy raiser for Guide Dogs for the Blind — an organization for which she has raised more than $16,000. When she’s not hugging a puppy, you might find her hugging a cliff on a deep-water solo rock climb, trekking across a glacier or crisscrossing a canyon suspended from the colorful parachute-style wing of a paraglider. “If I haven’t been there or tried it yet,” she says, “it’s probably on my list.”
