Patina’s banking practice is comprised of CFOs, commercial and mortgage loan executives, compliance experts, operations professionals, CEOs and other important leaders — all with rich and proven experience in the banking industry. Our Banking Professionals help large, medium and small/community banks with critical matters, including:
These examples explain how we can help in a variety of situations:
After terminating its CFO, a mid-sized bank turned to Patina for an interim CFO to keep financial, accounting and operating issues under control while the the hiring team looked for a permanent replacement. Our Patina Professional was instrumental in the interview and selection of the bank's new CFO. In addition, he transitioned what he was working on to the new CFO once he was in place.
Regulatory Compliance Management
Providing a highly experienced Chief Compliance Officer, Patina helped a bank's management team determine and then execute an implementation plan after bank examiner findings were received. Our compliance executive carefully managed ongoing communications with the examiners and helped to develop the bank’s junior compliance manager.
Mortgage Operation Assessment
Patina assessed and reported on the personnel, strategy, policies, recordkeeping and compliance of a fast growing mortgage operation for the board of directors of a mid-size bank.
Due Diligence Team Support
Patina provided a former bank COO to join a client’s M&A due diligence team. The team visited various locations of the acquisition target to help evaluate leadership, technology, operations, profitability, commercial and consumer lending, and compliance.
Commercial Lending Workouts
Patina provided two executives to help with credit workout situations for the commercial lending group of a large bank. The ability to bring in some of our operating executives with just the right industry backgrounds made a big difference in minimizing the bank’s losses from these difficult loan deals.
When you need an experienced professional, or team of professionals, to execute and/or manage a special project or key initiative, you can trust Patina to provide the right solution. We match your needs with talented executives who have done it before.
When a key position must be filled on an interim basis, Patina has the proven resources to help.

Patina can help you complete your management team by providing ongoing, part-time executives in key leadership functions where a full-time role is not needed or desired. This is a great way to have a well-rounded, world-class leadership team no matter the size of your company.
Our Patina Professionals give back by developing the high-potential leaders of the future. Many of our professionals enjoy spending a few hours a month by phone, email, Skype or in person meetings working to develop your up-and-coming talent. This is the most objective and confidential way to implement mentoring and coaching.
