He comes from an organization with a well-respected retail segment, and we are confident that we will benefit immensely from his proficiency in this part of our business."

His most recent position was Executive Vice President for Small Business Banking at Capital One Bank, covering Texas, Louisiana, Maryland, Virginia, DC, New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.  His team works in tandem with Capital One's national Small Business credit card team.

Prior to his current role, he led Capital One's branch, branch real estate and business banking functions in the "de novo" markets, including Dallas, Houston, Austin, San Antonio and several other communities.
