Today we sat down with Oscar Mendez to shed some light on the inner workings of our team.

What is your day-to-day at Stronghill Capital?

I work to identify needs and offer loan products to deepen relationships with current customers and business prospects throughout the company sales process. As Managing Director, I recommend product lines by identifying new product opportunities, and/or product, packaging and service changes. Additionally, I am tasked with surveying consumer trends and tracking competitors.

I also personally interview applicants and work to gather financial data to determine the risk associated with a specific loan request, while evaluating credit terms according to Stronghill’s lending policy.

What is a valuable lesson you have learned during your career?

Through my 30 years in the financial industry, I’ve learned that each day brings a new challenge that requires quick thinking and a unique approach. But, if you always do what you say, stand for what you believe, and do not compromise your values, you will go far in any industry.

When you are away from work, how do you spend your time?

I am a big Las Vegas Raiders fan, but when I’m not watching a game, I enjoy weight lifting and spending time at the gym or riding my motorcycle.
