Enterprise Bank & Trust Grows Presence in Southern California With Promotions, New Hire
Enterprise Bank & Trust, the banking subsidiary of Enterprise Financial Services Corp (NASDAQ: EFSC), has announced two internal promotions and a new hire to help grow its presence and business footprint in the Los Angeles and San Diego regions.
Former St. Louis Regional President John Meek has been appointed to the new role of Executive Vice President & Director of Commercial Banking for Los Angeles and Orange counties. In this role, Meek leads the Relationship Management and Business Development teams to help expand the bank’s current and future client base, reinforce and grow the Enterprise culture, and develop and enhance community and nonprofit partnerships in the region.
Meek has been with Enterprise for 16 years, as part of a more than 30-year banking career. Previously, he served as a Regional President in the St. Louis market. Meek led a group of 13 relationship managers and supporting staff who created customized solutions for commercial client relationships in the St. Louis metro area.
Banking veteran of nearly 35 years, John Murillo has also been promoted within the organization to Senior Vice President and Los Angeles Market President. Murillo now reports to Meek and leads a team of five in Los Angeles and Pasadena. Murillo came to Enterprise as part of the 2021 acquisition of First Choice Bancorp. Murillo offers a nearly 35-year track record of success in the banking industry. He brings an extensive background in managing and developing teams, and establishing and growing client relationships. Murillo exercises a consultative and collaborative approach to effectively assist his clients in reaching their financial objectives and building wealth.
In addition to these internal promotions, Enterprise has hired Kamil Wozowicz to serve as a Senior Vice President, Commercial Banking. Wozowicz has nearly 20 years of experience in commercial banking, serving the local California business community. Wozowicz has spent the majority of his career with large financial institutions, and the last eight years with regional organizations where he held credit-focused and portfolio growth positions. In his role at Enterprise, Wozowicz is responsible for growing the commercial and industrial market in Southern California.
“We have assembled a strong team that combines decades of industry experience with local talent and expertise. This will be a significant catalyst as we grow and expand in Southern California,” says Scott Goodman, Enterprise Bank & Trust President. Enterprise entered Southern California with the 2020 acquisition of Seacoast Commerce Banc Holdings, and further bolstered its position in the region with the 2021 acquisition of First Choice Bancorp.
