James Franz

President Blacksail USA

Jamie Franz has over 30 years of experience in senior management, investment management, sales management and loan origination for both commercial and consumer banking, asset-based lending and factoring. His main role at Blacksail Capital Partners is to build and manage the asset-based lending business which is something that he has done over the last 18 years at other institutions.

Prior to joining Blacksail Capital Partners, Jamie was a Managing Director at Ares Management, a $121 billion fund manager based in New York. He was a Regional Manager responsible for the Northeast, Midwest and Canada for Ares Commercial Finance, an asset-based lending fund. Jamie sat on both the Management Committee and the Investment Committee and helped grow the fund from $150 million to over $1 billion in less than four years.

Prior to that, he was a Partner at Keltic Financial Services, a small to midsize asset-based lending firm which Ares purchased in 2014.
