Local Bankers Move to CapitalMark
Knoxville, Tennessee – August 13, 2014 – CapitalMark Bank & Trust announces the addition of a new Banker Team comprised of local bankers Josh R. Hopkins, M. Brandon Hackett and Cameron M. Puckett. The new Banker Team will be based in CapitalMark’s Knoxville office located in the historic U.S. Post Office building downtown. Hopkins, Hackett and Puckett have extensive banking experience at regional financial institutions.
CapitalMark’s unique model aligns one Banker Team per client for a streamlined banking experience. This one-point-of-contact approach allows a close, advisory relationship to develop positioning the Banker Team to make informed decisions and customize solutions specifically for the clients’ unique financial situation.
Hopkins states, “I was drawn to CapitalMark because the Banker Teams are empowered to make decisions for their clients instead of relying decision makers outside of the market.” Hackett added, “Further, Bankers are encouraged to break the standardization of products and services and tailor solutions to specifically fit individual client needs.” Puckett remarked, “CapitalMark’s business model is efficient and forward-thinking. There’s not a branch on every corner because CapitalMark brings banking directly to the clients’ using couriers and technology. This low brick-and-mortar approach to banking coupled with fast, local decision-making allows us to offer better quality banking service to clients.”
Banking Group President Kenny Dyer stated, “I have confidence that these bankers can deliver the ultimate banking experience and quality results in the Knoxville market. As we continue to center resources to our Banker Teams, referrals from satisfied clients and positive performance results reinforce that our model, while unique in the industry, is efficient and effective.”
CapitalMark’s Knoxville office also employs veteran bankers J. Ryan White, Bryant LeCroy and Robert “Bob” Johnson. The bank operates in four East Tennessee markets at $879 million in total assets and was recently awarded a 5-Star Rating for strength, stability and profitability from independent rating and research firm BauerFinancial, Inc.
