Jon Burkhart & TRG Commercial Bank Successfully Complete Senior Commercial Lender Search

RICHMOND, July 11th, 2016 – Jon Burkhart and the Commercial Banking Team of The Richmond Group USA (TRG) are pleased to announce the successful conclusion of a Senior Commercial Lender search in Norman, OK for a well-known and established OK-based bank.

At the beginning of the 2nd quarter, one of our best clients in OK reached out to us with an urgent need to backfill a very seasoned commercial lender role. As we were already engaged with them on multiple opportunities throughout the state, they reached out to us immediately. They needed a very seasoned commercial loan officer who was well-versed in both C&I and CRE, had formal credit training, and could hit the ground running immediately with new and existing relationships.

Due to our deep, already-existing relationships in OK, we were able to immediately identify, qualify and attract the right candidate who met and exceeded all expectations. As the candidate was a well-known and well-respected individual within the Norman banking marketplace, our client and candidate relied on our years of experience to successfully and carefully navigate the hiring process confidentially and without raising any eyebrows.

With this new exciting opportunity, the Senior Commercial Lender has the opportunity to lend a much greater amount to his existing clientele, and has already developed a pipeline of over 5MM in new loans. The bank now has a Senior Commercial Lender within a difficult-to-penetrate marketplace, who has the knowledge and leadership skills to help continue to grow the bank’s Norman presence for years to come.

As your business continues to grow, so does your need for talented individuals. What are you doing today to secure the future talent needs?
