Susan Walton, Managing Director
Susan Walton is a Managing Director at Lazear Capital where she puts pen to paper in order to help clients achieve their goals. Whether analyzing and communicating the arguments for value in a sale, securing long-term financing, or handling a combination of both, Susan works closely with clients throughout each stage of a transaction to ensure that that the client’s objectives are being prioritized by all parties.
During her 15-year career in commercial banking, at both Bank of America and National City Bank, Susan made a point of learning everything she could about every deal and company that passed by her desk. From catfish farming to global retail, from the small commercial market to the large corporate market, from sole proprietorships to global public companies, Susan has structured and underwritten solutions for an extensive variety of businesses and borrowing purposes.
Susan grew up in Columbus, Ohio and earned her BA in International Business Management and Spanish from Marietta College. She and her husband live in Clintonville with their three young children, who have augmented her formal education with additional “on-the-job training” in negotiation skills, juggling competing priorities and the secrets to effective delegation.
