NAPLES — Longtime Fifth Third Bank executive David Call is retiring from his role overseeing the South Florida region for the Ohio-based bank. Fifth Third Bank credit risk executive Jim Weiss will replace Call.
Call, who will retire in June according to a statement, has been with Cincinnati-based Fifth Third since 2002, having held numerous positions in the commercial and retail lines of business before being promoted to regional president the bank’s Ohio Valley region. In 2008, he led the integration of the First Charter bank acquisition and took on leadership roles in Florida. He was based in Naples first, and later oversaw the bank’s Florida operations from Tampa.
“David’s leadership in the Ohio Valley region and Florida over the past two decades has been significant in helping us grow and expand across geographies with great service,” Fifth Third Bank President Tim Spence says in the statement. “We wish him the best in his next chapter.”
Weiss is a 14-year veteran with Fifth Third, according to the bank. He previously led Tampa Bay as city president, and was the senior commercial banking executive for the bank’s North Florida region. He will relocate to South Florida.
“Jim’s leadership as a city president in our Tampa market coupled with his commitment to the community will enable us to continue on the strong path of growing our market share while serving our customers,” Spence says in the statement.
