“Nikki has established deep relationships with teammates, clients, and the Central Texas community and personifies Bank of America’s commitment to stakeholder service,” said Brian Moynihan, Bank of America chairman and CEO. “I thank Nikki for her leadership and know that David is perfectly positioned to build upon this legacy to ensure that Bank of America is actively engaged in helping Austin’s economy continue to grow and thrive.”

Since joining Bank of America in 2001 as a financial advisor in Merrill Lynch, Bader has held leadership roles as regional sales manager for Illinois and Michigan as well as Consumer Banking and Merrill Edge Region Executive for South Central Texas. In addition, he served as the Austin Market Integration executive and as the Executive Sponsor for LGBTQ+ PRIDE and Community Volunteers. An Austin native and resident, Bader is active in the community serving on the board of directors for Any Baby Can of Austin.

In addition to Bader’s appointment as president, Carla Molina who is the bank’s Head of U.S. Local Media Relations, has been appointed Austin Market Executive. In addition to her current media responsibilities, she will be responsible for working with Bader to help drive client and community economic growth, as well as overseeing local partnerships, sponsorships and philanthropy in the Central Texas region.
