Mr. Sharpe was a recognized authority on small business investment and private equity investment to meet CRA goals. As an Investment Officer for the company’s Low Income Housing Tax Credit Portfolio, he managed two of Citigroup’s largest external relationships. For several years, he also managed Citigroup’s Latin American business. Even after retirement he continued to have extensive contacts across the region and maintained a residence in Lima, Peru. He developed extensive Board experience by being a member of 23 Limited Partnership Boards representing the interests of Citigroup.
