EVP, Corporate Banking Regional Director

Kris Ilkov

You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to start an aerospace company, but it helps to have a corporate banker by your side who understands the industry. Kris has worked in corporate finance for more than 25 years. The University of Wisconsin alum (go Badgers!) specializes in aerospace and defense, technology and healthcare companies and can help with everything from cash flow optimization to long and short-term debt obligations, including high yield bonds and convertibles. Kris takes great pride in his ability to help solve his clients’ problems and has received numerous President’s Club awards in the past to prove it.

A devoted father and avid soccer player, Kris can often be found on the pitch with his two boys Luka and Noah. When he’s not teaching his sons the finer points of the game, he works with Child Development & Associates, the largest, non-profit child care and early childhood education organization in San Diego.
