Vice President, Portfolio Management
Oliver Craig is vice president, portfolio management, for Torrey Pines Bank. Based in the Downtown San Diego office and serving clients throughout Southern California, he works to provide funds for working capital, lines of credit, commercial real estate loans and more. Mr. Craig has expertise in arranging financing for contractors in the construction industry, as well as developing various financing options for commercial and residential real estate developers.
A number of his clients work in San Diego's expansive construction industry – a historically “slow-paying” trade. He has been successful in providing financing solutions to supplement a working capital deficit, helping to fuel the continued growth of the companies he works with. Whether it is capital for growth, a line of credit for bonding capacity or a “quick-turn” financing arrangement for equipment purchases, Mr. Craig is experienced in creating tailored loan structures, and focuses on a company’s specific needs and priorities to provide a custom solution. He began his banking career as a loan underwriter, which helped to develop his understanding of a client’s financial condition, and what is needed to take their company to the next level. His portfolio includes clients such as contractors, manufacturers, and small businesses who appreciate working with a responsive, local, commercial banker.
He earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Business Administration from Point Loma Nazarene University, with an emphasis on Finance and Entrepreneurship. Outside of his professional career, he enjoys playing golf, hiking and frequenting San Diego’s diverse restaurant scene.
