Darcy SalingerChief Credit Officer
Darcy joined Root Capital in 2011 as Chief Credit Officer and leads the credit risk management function, which includes credit policy and procedures, underwriting standards and tools, lending operations, credit administration, portfolio risk management, and collections and workout. She came to Root Capital after a combined eleven years in commercial lending to middle market, not-for-profit, and corporate businesses across multiple industries at Bank of America, RBS Citizens, and TD Bank. From 1986 – 2000 she worked at the microfinance pioneer, ACCION International, where she held various positions, including Director of Credit and Investment Analysis and Director of Financial Analysis. Darcy has an MBA from Simmons University.
Darcy is excited about the improvements being made at Root Capital every day to be a best in class lender in a sector that has the potential for great impact but is challenging to serve, given the inherent risks in agriculture, as well as the markets where Root Capital works. During her free time, she enjoys various hobbies, including making jewelry, knitting, drawing, and cooking. However, her main priority during free time is to spend it with family, especially her grandson.
