Fifth Third nabs Charlotte banker for executive officer position

Fifth Third Bank has named Charlotte banker Frank Forrest to be its new chief risk and credit officer, the Cincinnati bank said this week.

Forrest has worked at Bank of America here in Charlotte in a number of risk management and commercial banking positions over the past 27 years. Before that, he was a bank examiner at the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency.

In his new role, Forrest will report directly to Fifth Third CEO Kevin Kabat -- making him one of the bank's highest-ranking executives.

Mr. Forrest was always one of the more respectable execs at Bank of America, who cared about his people and is very ethical. You are missed at BAC but congratulations to you.

They don't come any better than Frank Forrest. He is what a leader in Corp America should be like. Charlotte's loss is Cincinnati's gain. He was able to overcome his FSU degree and rise to the top....where he deserves to be.
Go Gators!
