Job description

Who We Are:


Chaston Associates is the leading independent Loan Review firm in the Northeast, enjoying over 38 years of asset quality consulting services to over 200 community banks, credit unions, and other forms of financial institutions. Our clients are located throughout New England and New York, and range in asset size from $50 million to more than $12 billion.


Our goal is to work with our clients to develop sound credit cultures and ensure successful, long lasting relationships. Chaston prides itself in tailoring its strategic loan review programs to deliver an independent assessment of credit quality, as well as client support via Loan Policy development, Loan Loss Reserve methodology, and Due Diligence analysis.


Chaston Associates wishes to expand its team and is looking to add new Team Leaders to its roster. This exciting opportunity will include an introduction into the specialty of commercial loan review, as well as comprehensive training in the particular skills needed to confidently lead our on-site review teams.


Candidate General Profile:


Ideal candidates for this position should have extensive experience managing the credit aspects of a commercial loan portfolio. Candidates should have a clear understanding of commercial loan underwriting, monitoring, and analysis. In addition, candidates should be familiar with the regulatory landscape, including aspects of safety and soundness exams performed by regulatory bodies. Experience managing people is required. Candidates should be comfortable with Microsoft Word, Excel, and Access, and should be able to present summary findings in the form of a well written, lengthy report.


Prior to COVID-19, the vast majority of our client assignments took place on-site, at the credit centers of institutions engaging our services. The pandemic has altered our business model and we now conduct much of our work through remote tools such as Zoom, conference calls, face-time (as well as other similar means of communication), in addition to the more traditional email and phone access that have allowed us to perpetuate our firm’s success. Client VPNs and other software provided by Chaston will be utilized to access client data.





Team Leader’s must understand credit-related aspects of CRE, C&I, and construction lending. Team Leaders will be expected to manage small teams performing commercial loan review services. Teams will look to the Team Leader for answers regarding underwriting, risk profile, and regulations. The Team Leader is expected to be able to answer or find these answers in an effective and concise manner, in addition to reviewing credit files themselves. Likewise, Team Leaders are expected to manage the client side of the engagements, speaking with senior bank managers, reporting findings to bank committee members, and following up with the credit team when necessary.
