Jon Burkhart & TRG Commercial Banking Complete Successful SVP of Commercial Lending Search

(Richmond, VA) Ocotber 7, 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 Lending search in Atlanta, GA for a successful and established Atlanta-based community bank.

During the second quarter our client-company reached out to us with a confidential replacement need for their Atlanta, GA location.  They had been looking unsuccessfully for six months for a seasoned C&I lender who knew how to underwrite and find their own business.  They also needed to be established in the Atlanta market with C&I-specific relationships that would allow them to immediately hit the ground running.  

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

The bank now has a senior commercial lender who has over 5MM in new loans in the pipeline to close before the end of the year and has already been instrumental in mentoring younger lenders, while the senior commercial lender now has the ability to make much larger loans and develop more sizeable client relationships. 

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