With over 25 years of experience as a lender, Josh began his career at Chicago-based community banks, lending to commercial real estate investors and businesses. During the Great Recession, Josh was instrumental in Bridgeview Bank’s navigation of the difficult economic climate. This experience prepared him for a position as a senior lender at a $50-billion regional bank, developing business with institutional real estate investors on a nationwide basis. He remained in that position before leaving to form Alecko Lending in June of 2021.

Outside of work, Josh is on the Board of Directors of Chicago-based Sarah’s Circle where he presently serves as its Treasurer.
