Jon Burkhart & TRG Commercial Banking Complete Successful Regional President Search

RICHMOND, June 2, 2016 – Jon Burkhart and the Commercial Banking Team of The Richmond Group USA (TRG) are pleased to announce the successful conclusion of a Regional President search in Murfreesboro, TN for a well-known and established TN-based community bank.

One of our best client-companies reached out to us in the 4th quarter of 2015 with a need for a successor to their soon-to-be-retired Regional President for the Rutherford County marketplace. As one of our best clients, they were relying solely on us to help with their search for a very senior commercial banker who was well-versed in CRE, had a deep understanding of the Rutherford County marketplace, and had experience building and leading successful commercial banking teams.

Due to the specific qualifications this role required and the level of difficulty of recruiting in such a close-knit community, a comprehensive search was conducted to uncover and attract a pool of qualified candidates in the greater Rutherford County marketplace. Due to our deep, already-existing relationships in TN, we were able to identify, qualify and attract the right candidate. As the candidate was a high-profile and well-respected individual within the Rutherford County 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 President has already brought in a significant number of new loans, helped expand and inform the credit policy within his bank, and started an in-depth training program whereby he can continue to grow his team into future leaders within the community. The bank now has a Regional President within one of the fastest-growing, but most difficult to penetrate, markets in the US, who has the knowledge and leadership skills to help continue to grow the bank’s Rutherford County Marketplace 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?
