SVP, Chief Lending Officer

CB-1 - Reading, MA

Smith & Wilkinson has been retained by Reading Cooperative Bank to manage the search for the Bank’s next Senior Vice President, Chief Lending Officer.  Founded in 1886, Reading Cooperative Bank has been serving the consumer and small business banking needs of its customers for 132 years.  The Bank was founded primarily by working-class citizens on the principles of frugality and solving the problem of home ownership and the Bank’s employees believe it is their responsibility to leave the organization stronger than when they joined.  Today, the Bank is a modern, progressive community bank with a full suite of online and mobile products and services to complement its retail branch network that also honors its rich history and the history of cooperative banks. For the period ending December 31, 2017, the Bank had total assets of approximately $550MM and a total loan portfolio of $442MM, comprised primarily of 1-4 family residential and commercial real estate.  The Bank is in excellent financial condition with pristine asset quality and strong earnings, capital, and efficiencies.  Reporting directly to the President & CEO, the Chief Lending Officer will play a key role as part of the bank’s Senior Management team and will be responsible for the leadership of Residential Lending, Commercial Lending, Business Development, Credit Administration, and Loan Servicing.  We are seeking a unique, forward-looking lending executive for this opportunity who embodies the values of this terrific organization.  For additional information, or to arrange a confidential discussion, please contact Cameron Boyd, Practice Director, Financial Services: cboyd@smithandwilkinson.com.
