With 28 years banking experience with a focus on commercial and retail lending, credit administration and risk management, Bob built a team and created a management and operational infrastructure that helped that bank navigate through a tumultuous time in the banking industry. The processes, procedures, reporting and governance that Bob helped put into place have been held up as examples by banking examiners and industry peers. Prior to being named Chief Risk Officer by the company in 2010, Bob held the position of Chief Credit Officer.
Bob started his banking career in 1986 with Signet Bank (formerly Bank of Virginia) and after graduating from a two year management training program, held several positions in cash management, commercial credit administration and commercial lending. In 1994 Bob became the chief credit officer of Farmers & Merchants Bank-Eastern Shore, an affiliate of Mercantile Bankshares Corporation. He left in 2006 to become the chief credit officer of Shore Bank, one of the affiliates of Hampton Roads Bankshares.
