Bruce W Taylor, chairman and CEO of US-based Taylor Capital Group, the family-owned and operated bank, has announced that Mark A Hoppe has joined the company as president.
"We are very excited to welcome Mark, who is well-known for his extensive experience in commercial banking, his passion for middle market clients and commitment to the community," said Taylor. "Mark is a proven leader, manager and business builder, and appreciates the bank's value proposition and our place in the competitive landscape."
Hoppe also assumes the role of president and CEO of Cole Taylor Bank, positions that Taylor held prior to being elected chairman and CEO of Taylor Capital Group in November 2006. Taylor Capital Group is the bank holding company for Cole Taylor Bank, a Chicago-based commercial bank specialising in serving the business banking, real estate lending and wealth management requirements of closely-held and family-owned small- and mid-sized businesses.
Bruce's sibling, Jeff, led a group of family and employee investors in a buyout of the bank from the publicly-traded holding company in 1997, which created Taylor Capital Group, and which is today worth $3.6 billion.
