“Streamlining our commercial banking businesses under Bill’s leadership will create a consistent, simplified approach across our markets that enhances our bankers’ ability to deepen relationships with clients, understand their needs and provide the best solutions,” said Turner. “Bill has more than 40 years of experience serving commercial clients and working with bankers across our markets, and I’m pleased to have him leading our efforts to meet the needs of business clients.”
