Jon Burkhart & TRG Commercial Banking Complete Successful Regional Credit Officer Search

(Richmond, VA) June 1, 2016 – Jon Burkhart and the Commercial Banking Team of The Richmond Group USA (TRG) are pleased to announce the successful conclusion of Regional Credit Officer search in Nashville, TN for a well-known and established regional bank.

At the end of 2015, one of our best client-companies reached out to us with an opportunity that was proving to be an extreme challenge. Even with the help of several local recruiting firms, our client had been unsuccessful in finding the right candidate for several months. The right fit was a seasoned credit professional who was well-versed in both C&I and CRE underwriting, had experience approving credits up to 50MM, was familiar with the Middle TN marketplace and had experience leading a team of credit officers, analysts and lenders.

Due to the specific qualifications this role required, a comprehensive search was conducted to uncover and attract a pool of qualified candidates in Nashville and its surrounding counties and communities. Due to our deep, already-existing relationships in TN, we were able to identify, qualify and attract the right candidate within three weeks. As the candidate was a high-profile and well-respected individual within the Nashville banking marketplace, our client and candidate relied on our years of experience to carefully navigate the hiring process confidentially and without raising any eyebrows.

With this new exciting opportunity, the Regional Credit Officer has the ability to make a significant impact, calling on his years of credit expertise to safely and efficiently grow the bank’s most important and fastest-growing region. The bank now has a regional credit officer with the experience, knowledge, and leadership skills to help take the bank’s Middle TN region to the next level.

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