Citywide Banks and Parent Company See Personnel Changes
Kevin Quinn named Heartland regional president, and Joanne Sherwood becomes president ad CEO of Citywide Banks
Joanne Sherwood was named president and CEO of Citywide Banks – a subsidiary of Heartland Financial USA Inc. – effective January 1. Meanwhile, Kevin Quinn, previously CEO of Citywide Banks, has been named Heartland regional bank president with expanded responsibilities for Colorado, Montana and California.
"Joanne [Sherwood] has built a solid career and reputation in the banking and financial services industry focusing on business management, real estate financing and loan portfolio management," says Quinn. "She has been with Citywide Banks for 18 years and worked in the Colorado banking market for nearly three decades. Joanne's leadership and expertise will support Citywide Banks' continued growth and prosperity."
Since joining Citywide Banks in 2000, Sherwood has contributed considerably to the organization's strategic growth. She serves as a mentor to up-and-coming lenders and has developed a program to assist and support women's professional growth.
She currently serves as the chair-elect for the Colorado Banker's Association. She is very active in the Denver community and serves on the board of Denver Hospice, a nonprofit providing hospice and palliative care services across nine Colorado counties. She also serves as a director on the board of Arrupe Jesuit High School, a college preparatory school serving economically disadvantaged students from Denver's inner-city neighborhoods.
The two moves come as both Citywide Banks and its parent company, Heartland financial USA Inc., experience continued growth. Quinn, Citywide's president and CEO since 2009, will now manage strategic oversight for Heartland's regional footprint of banks. He will remain active in the community through board involvement with Downtown Denver Partnership, Denver Health Authority Board, Colorado Concern and other activities.
Citywide Banks is a state-chartered, community-invested bank with assets of approximately $2.3 billion and banking centers across Colorado's Front Range, Foothills and mountain communities.
