Jon Burkhart & TRG Commercial Banking Team Successfully Complete Market Leader Search

RICHMOND, VA: July 26th, 2016 – Jon Burkhart and the Commercial Banking Team of The Richmond Group USA <x{(}>(TRG) are pleased to announce the successful conclusion of Market Leader search in Nashville, TN for a well-known and established TN-based bank.

Recently, one of our best clients in TN reached out to us with a desire to hire a Market Leader and establish a physical presence in the Nashville marketplace.  As we were already engaged with them on multiple opportunities throughout the Middle TN region, they wanted to synergistically capture on the recent conversations we were having with commercial banking executives in the marketplace.  They needed an energetic, up-and-coming commercial lender who was credit trained, had experience successfully building a team, and could draw on an extensive local client base to quickly grow the marketplace.

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 neighboring communities.  Because of our deep, already-existing relationships in TN, we were able to identify, qualify and attract the right candidate within two weeks.  The candidate was someone we’ve known for years and was very passive in entertaining other opportunities, though he had a specific goal for his career that closely aligned with the opportunity we presented him.

With this new exciting opportunity, the Market Leader has the ability to be a very visible leader within one of the fastest-growing regions in the US, and has had an immediate impact on the bank, developing a pipeline of over 10MM in new loans in relatively short order.  The bank now has a Market Leader with an extensive network and the skill set to quickly and successfully grow a new market.

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