Lead Bank Welcomes New Chief Regulatory Officer and Chief Credit Officer

KANSAS CITY, MO (November 2017) Lead Bank, a locally-owned financial institution, dedicated to the needs of small businesses and their families, continues to provide the highest level of sophistication to its clients by creating new positions and hiring key people. Several new team members, including Chief Regulatory Officer, Julie Pine, and Tim Gervy, Chief Credit Officer/Executive Vice President, are among the few new faces you’ll see.

Julie Pine will serve as General Counsel and Chief Regulatory Officer providing legal counsel to the Bank, its officers and directors. This new position was created in recognition of the Bank’s intent to become the premier small business bank in the region. In her new role, she will assist in regulatory and independent auditors, review and draft legal documents, serve as Secretary to the Bank and Lead Financial Group Board of Directors and manage risk according to an enterprise risk management framework.

Julie is a native of the Kansas City area and earned her Law Degree at Kansas University. Most recently, Pine was General Counsel for Mariner Holdings prior to joining Lead Bank. Mariner Holdings is one of the largest independent wealth management firms in the country.

Tim Gervy will serve as Chief Credit Officer/Executive Vice President and will bring more than 25 years of commercial lending and regulatory experience to the team. Prior to coming to Lead Bank, Gervy was a financial consultant with Envision Capital Solutions, LLC and Chief Credit Officer of Alterra Bank. With the growth of Lead Bank’s loan portfolio and continued strategic plan to focus on loan growth, hiring a person dedicated to managing the overall lending function of the bank was necessary. Tim will work directly with the lending staff to meet strategic goals.

Additionally, Lead Bank has also welcomed Bankers Jacqueline Venegas, Samantha Heck, Emily Hays, Kassi Simpson, Brandi Whitmore, Cheyanne Reed, Kimberly Lor, Meagan Hughes, Jodie Kirby, and Antoinette Guyton.

“As Lead Bank continues to grow, innovate, and provide more complex products and services, it is important that we continually add key people to our team so that we can evaluate, monitor and manage risks to the best of our ability. Lead Bank’s innovation strategy goes hand in hand with a forward-thinking risk management strategy and a progressive loan strategy. Julie and Tim will be instrumental in both,” says Josh Rowland, CEO of Lead Bank.
