René Pastor

President of Global Commercial
As President, I oversee the firm’s global sales and marketing efforts. I also serve in the capacity of CEO, Americas where I manage day-to-day operations in the region.

Working with our more than 20 global offices to structure supply chain finance and export factoring programs for small and middle market companies, I bring expert insights into international trade and finance.

I have been with Tradewind since 2007 and have held multiple roles within the firm’s headquarters. Prior to my current position I served as the Head of Debt and Legal department. Before joining Tradewind, I worked for Deutsche Forfait AG in Cologne. There I served as an account manager, verifying financial instruments such as Bills of Exchange, Promissory Notes, Letters of Credit, Insurance Policies and Guarantee Letters.

I am a graduate of Rheinische Fachhochschule Köln e.V. University, where I studied Financial Law.
