Private Banking Executive Manager

Central Bank
Clayton, Missouri
Open/ Negotiable
Closing date
Jun 23, 2024

Central Bank’s senior executive team is seeking an experienced leader to unite our platform around this core customer segment in support of our strategic growth agenda. This is an exciting opportunity for a seasoned executive that enjoys collaborating with talented team members to deliver a new level of customer service.



Founded in 1902, Central Bank is a $20 billion, multi-state regional banking organization headquartered in Jefferson City, Missouri with over $12 billion wealth assets under management. 

While much of our senior management and centralized functions are based in Jefferson City and St. Louis, 12 of our most senior executives are located in our regional markets, ensuring decisions happen as close to our customers as possible. 

We believe our collaborative and community-oriented culture inspires both employee and customer loyalty, both of which approach levels twice that of banking industry averages. This formula has allowed Central Bank to stand the test of time; being recognized by Forbes as one of the best banks in America every year since it began publication of its list in 2009 (currently #17).   

A cornerstone of our current growth agenda is doubling our wealth management revenue over the medium term.  Realizing that goal will require us to harness the extensive capabilities that currently exist vertically across our company, including credit, deposit and wealth products at the center and relationship managers across our markets. A successful leader in this new role will quickly build relationships with these key stakeholders to drive client-centered collaboration and outcomes.

We are actively seeking an exceptional individual with a blend of leadership, strategic insight, and a passion for providing unparalleled service to join and lead our team at Central Bank's Private Bank. If you possess an entrepreneurial spirit and thrive in an environment that challenges you, Central Bank is the perfect fit for you. You'll collaborate with talented colleagues across markets, businesses, and functions, presenting significant opportunities for growth in a growing company.
