Taylor Capital Group (TAYC) in Chicago has hired David Drury, a General Electric Capital executive, to head sales and capital markets for its equipment-finance unit.

Drury was managing director of intermediary funding at GE Capital, helping financial institutions acquire loans and leases in the secondary market.

Drury will report to Edward Dahlka Jr., president of Cole Taylor Equipment Finance, the $5.8 billion-asset Taylor Capital said Tuesday.

Drury's "extensive knowledge of the marketplace and his deep and broad experience in financial services is a natural fit for our growing company,” Dahlka said in a news release.
