RALEIGH, N.C., Dec. 23, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Jonathan N. Krieps has been named executive vice president and chief banking officer for North State Bank (the "Bank"), announced Larry D. Barbour, president and CEO. Krieps joined the Bank a little over five years ago, most recently serving as senior vice president and chief operations officer.
"Jonathan has played a key role in North State Bank's success," said Barbour. "He has a clear understanding of our vision, and he upholds the values that define us and make us unique in the marketplace. He has the respect of the rest of the management team, as well as our entire staff. I look forward to his continued positive impact on this company."
Krieps began his banking career in 1988, following his graduation from West Virginia State University, where he earned degrees in both accounting and finance. He received his MBA from the University of Charleston in Charleston, West Virginia and is a graduate of the North Carolina School of Banking at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the Graduate School of Banking at Louisiana State University. He serves on the board for Junior Achievement of Eastern North Carolina.
"In this role, I will explore and implement ways to better connect and engage with people," commented Krieps. "While email and text are great tools for sharing information, they cannot replace the face-to-face interactions that provide the insight needed to help people. I have the privilege of leading a great team of experienced, committed bankers and of being part of a Bank that places importance on things that matter. It is an honor to be in this leadership role."
Founded in 2000, North State Bank is a full-service community bank serving Wake and New Hanover counties through seven full-service offices.
