“We welcome David’s experience and leadership to TCB and particularly his passion for deep client engagement and community involvement,” said Grant Franklin, executive vice president and director of commercial banking. “David has an accomplished background with demonstrated success in complex commercial banking for businesses. I am confident David will bring the same dedication to serving the financial needs of TCB’s business customers.”
Prior to joining TCB, Hopkins worked for First Bank in O’Fallon, Ill., for 26 years and was most recently group manager.
“I’m excited to join an organization where the focus is the customer’s financial well-being,” said Hopkins. “TCB is a growing community bank and I look forward to being a part of the continued success.”
