CapitalMark Announces Banker Team Acquisition
Knoxville, Tennessee – March 15, 2013 – CapitalMark Bank & Trust announces the appointment of a new Banker Team led by local bankers Bryant A. LeCroy, J. Ryan White and Robert “Bob” L. Johnson who are based in CapitalMark’s office in the historic post office building downtown. LeCroy, White and Johnson have extensive banking experience with almost 50 years’ experience collectively and most recently worked together in the business banking group of a regional bank with Knoxville offices.
Of his move to CapitalMark, LeCroy states, “I appreciate how CapitalMark’s unique model empowers bankers to make prompt, local decisions while providing added client convenience using technology and courier services. This is especially appealing to business clients who never have to leave their office to conduct their banking transactions.” White added, “The CapitalMark model aligns each client with a seasoned Banker Team to streamline and enhance banking. There’s no shuffling between departments or segmenting by transaction - the Banker Team manages every facet.” Johnson concluded, “This model is smart, forward-thinking and effective. As a Banker Team, we are highly motivated to serve clients by customizing products and services to meet clients’ varying needs.”
Banking Group President Kenny Dyer noted, “These seasoned bankers will serve the Knoxville community well. CapitalMark continues to out-perform its peers by centering resources to its Banker Teams. I am confident clients will find value in these bankers’ depth of experience, ability to bring creative ideas to the table and capacity to make decisions timely and on a local level.”
As evidence of its commitment to expand its Knoxville operations, this is the second team acquired by CapitalMark since January as it recently announced the addition of Banker Lisa Warren. Kenny Dyer states, “East Tennessee is extremely receptive to CapitalMark’s unique approach. The Knoxville business community rewards partners who enhance efficiency, and that’s what we encourage our bankers to do by customizing solutions.” CapitalMark was recently highlighted as a “bank to watch” for outperformance in the industry publication American Banker.
