As Senior Commercial Lender, Sutherland’s primary responsibilities will include commercial credit origination and business development. Sutherland’s expertise is in commercial credit origination with a detailed focus on healthcare lending, such as family medical practices, dentists, and oral surgeons.
Judith Robbins, Vice President of Commercial and Private Banking, says, “Craig’s expertise in the healthcare segment, specifically financing acquisitions, will enhance Arbor’s presence in this industry. He also brings a deep understanding of Commercial Real Estate transactions. As Arbor has recently entered the Kent County market, Craig’s skill set will be a differentiator among the other financial institutions. I am delighted to have Craig join the Arbor team with his knowledge and contacts in the Grand Rapids area.”
Upon joining Arbor Financial, Sutherland says that he is, “very excited for the ability to make lending decisions locally, and to work with a nimble and growing commercial lending team. I enjoy the family atmosphere and close-knit Arbor team.” In his free time, Sutherland says that he is an avid home cook, enjoys practicing yoga with his wife, attending his son’s sporting events, and playing basketball.
