KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa., Aug. 2, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- The Travillian Group is pleased to announce that Jim Clark has joined the firm as a Senior Recruiter in the Banks & Credit Unions practice. Jim Clark will be based in Salt Lake City and will focus on accelerating Travillian's sourcing and placing top level talent for Community Banks across the nation.

Jim commented, "I am honored and excited to be working with the Travillian Group. The commitment of everyone in this company to integrity, long lasting deep relationships and professionalism is what makes our organization special. I look forward to working with Community Banks to achieve their goals and help them find the best of the best."

Jim joins the Travillian Group from WebBank where he led the Bank Partnership Program. Previously, he was an eleven year veteran of Zions Bank. Here, he held various positions including, VP of Commercial Lending and Underwriter, but the bulk of his tenure was spent as a Vice President in the Correspondent Banking group, serving hundreds of community banks across the nation. In this role, Jim built a sizable following of loyal clients with whom he assisted on a variety of needs, including, investments, operations, deposits and lending. His efforts led to triple-digit growth by increasing the overall portfolio of customers, products per customer and deposits, which resulted in a 400% increase in business and profitability.

Additionally, Jim is very well versed in the technology side of banking as well. He has always had a special interest in technology which led to him getting a bachelor's degree in Business Information Systems. At Travillian, he will be heavily relied upon to bring this expertise to our banking clients. "Technology is changing banking. Making sure our clients have the right people who understand the disruption of technology in banking is of the upmost importance." Jim said, "Banks need to understand they are technology companies in the business of banking, not banks who have need of technology. Those who do will stand out."

David Yancoskie, Managing Partner of The Travillian Group commented, "I am thrilled to have Jim on board. Since hiring our current Head of Depository Recruiting, Brian Love, in 2016, the Bank practice has taken off. Jim's addition is another big step in the evolution of a group that I believe will see significant growth in the coming years."

Brian Love added, "Our flourishing bank practice currently works with a sizable group of growth-oriented bank clients across the country. Jim's broad bank knowledge and exposure, coupled with his relationship orientation, make him the perfect fit for our team."

Jim received a bachelor's degree in Business Information Systems from Utah State University and an MBA from Western Governors University. He lives with his wife and four kids in Salt Lake City, UT.
