Jon Burkhart & TRG Commercial Banking Complete Successful Senior Commercial Lender Search

(Richmond, VA) April, 25 2014 –  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 Houston for an established community bank.

Our client-company, who has come to rely on The Richmond Group exclusively for growth opportunities within their lending group, reached out to us immediately when they decided they wanted to start growing their commercial real estate presence in Houston.  The lender they were adding not only needed to have great commercial real estate relationships in Houston and South Houston, but they also needed to have great credit skills combined with excellent business development skills.

Due to the specific qualifications this role required, a comprehensive search was conducted to uncover and attract a pool of qualified candidates in Houston and its surrounding suburbs and communities.  Because of our deep, already-existing relationships in Houston, we were able to identify and attract the right lender within two weeks. 

The new senior commercial lender is excited about the new opportunity and is already having an impact on the lending team, with significant relationships and over 6MM in new prospective commercial real estate loans identified.  Our client is extremely happy to have found someone in the market that has a large portfolio and extensive relationships that will take their portfolio to new levels within the Houston marketplace. 

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