Posted 03/26/2024

Norwalk, CT, March 26, 2024Mitsubishi HC Capital America announces that ABF Journal has named Candi Pavliscak, SVP and Chief Risk Officer of Business Finance, as one of the “Top Women in Specialty Finance” in 2024.  

The annual list highlights women who hold management positions in the specialty finance industry, and who have displayed exceptional leadership in 2024 and over the course of their careers.

“We are tremendously proud and celebrate this well-deserved recognition of Candi’s accomplishments,” said her long-time colleague and manager Mike Semanco, President and COO of Mitsubishi HC Capital America’s Business Finance division. “Her knowledge, thoughtfulness, and tenacity to keep charging forward, and doing so consistently on her own or soliciting the help of others, have positioned her to be a unique leader in commercial financing.”

Pavliscak has been a part of the specialty finance industry for more than three decades. She started her career in a part-time position at a local bank, and then became a control manager at an alternative lender where she was first exposed to asset-based lending and factoring. She joined Hennessey Capital in 2002 as vice president, which was acquired by Hitachi Capital America and later renamed Mitsubishi HC Capital America.

Adds Semanco, “I’ve worked with Candi now for 25 years in various companies and roles and the value she has brought to all these companies is significant. While she has several major accomplishments, it is the small, consistent achievements over her career which make her a standout in our industry.”

Brian Rosa, President of Commercial Finance at Mitsubishi HC Capital America, echoes similar sentiments. “Candi’s efforts in implementing effective policies and procedures have significantly enhanced operational efficiencies, positioning Mitsubishi HC Capital America as a leader in ABL. She consistently exemplifies the highest professional standards while working in an environment of perpetual learning about diverse business ventures and fostering critical client connections. She’s an incredibly valuable member of our team.”

Pavliscak attributes her commitment to continuous learning as a key to her sustained success. She intends to further enhance her leadership skills by adeptly managing larger and more diverse teams while also continuing to serve as a mentor to her colleagues. She remains steadfast in her commitment to ongoing growth and fostering a supportive environment for those under her guidance.
