SunTrust Bank has named Ashleigh Overly Managing Director of the Sports and Entertainment Group at SunTrust Bank, the position vacated by Andrew Kintz earlier this year.
“I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work with a wonderful team of advisors and associates who have deep roots in Nashville and across the music business,” says Overly. “Our team’s knowledge and the depth of service we provide our clients and business partners is unparalleled, allowing us to build upon SunTrust’s legacy on Music Row and in the entertainment business. I look forward to forming my own deep relationships while partnering with the team to continue providing the best-in-class experience our clients have come to expect from SunTrust.”
Overly has more than a decade of investment banking experience with the majority of her career spent focusing on the sports and entertainment industry. She knows firsthand the importance of establishing relationships with members of the Nashville music industry saying, “Whether you need a wire or need to solve a major problem, clients can always call me. That type of conversation doesn’t happen with a stranger.”
Prior to joining the SunTrust offices on Music Row, she worked alongside a team that focused on providing a full suite of investment banking services to music publishers, record labels, talent agencies, and live entertainment companies. And earlier in her career, she gained experience with the bank’s equity capital markets team focused on raising equity capital in the form of initial public offerings and secondary offerings for companies across the consumer industry.
A graduate from Washington & Lee University in 2006, she has spent her time understanding the needs of all the stakeholders in the industry, from the creative writing, recording and producing to the publishing and distribution companies to the end users of music consumption.
Interesting Fact: Overly was a four year varsity letter recipient in volleyball and an all-conference scholar athlete at Washington & Lee.
