Sean Petitt

AVP, Senior Manager, Financial Planning and Analysis

"Our leaders do an outstanding job of communicating, and I feel that it creates an environment of professionalism and cooperation."

Sean PetittSean Petitt joined CapitalSource in 2008 as a Finance Manager within the Financial Planning and Analysis department. Over the years, he has enjoyed increased responsibilities, and, in 2012, earned a promotion to AVP, Senior Manager.

In Sean’s opinion, “there are two major areas that set CapitalSource apart from others—its leadership and the culture it fosters.”

Sean is impressed with the leadership at CapitalSource. “It begins with executive management developing a vision along with a clear strategy to help employees realize that vision. Both are then shared with all employees, which is the most critical piece, as it puts everyone from staff to executives on the same page. Our leaders do an outstanding job of communicating, and I feel it creates an environment of professionalism and cooperation.”

This environment is the starting point for a unique culture and workplace. According to Sean, “CapitalSource has access to a large balance sheet via its parent, Pacific Western Bank, but the culture that has evolved within the organization makes it feel like a family. It cares very much about its employees, and this fuels a great sense of employee loyalty and dedication. CapitalSource invests heavily in the development of its employees, and it’s easy for me to say that the experience has been invaluable.”
