The person in our Complex Credit Underwriting role will be responsible for analyzing quarterly interim financial statements and accompanying reports to ensure borrowers have not deteriorated significantly enough to warrant an adverse change in their current risk rating.  In addition, this individual will be responsible for reviewing customer accounts and/or portfolios in order to identify and/or take corrective action on potential credit quality issues.   The underwriter will conduct industry analysis while researching borrower past performance & financial trends; investigate the borrower's current circumstances and accurately determine key drivers behind performance deterioration; ultimately, providing expert advice to management and/or credit partners.  This position involves extensive credit and financial analysis to determine an appropriate credit decision.  Underwriting credit actions include downgrade reviews, borrowing base reviews, annual reviews & renewals when warranted, covenant violations, and other credit actions based on any changes in borrower's business structure and/or performance.
