"Furthermore, as an officer of BNCCorp and BNC Bank for the past seven years, he is deeply immersed in the culture of integrity, community engagement, customer service and financial stewardship that are the hallmarks of our business approach."

Franz, who joined the company's board earlier this year, is a former KPMG partner who focused on the financial services industry, serving Wells Fargo (WFC), TCF Bank (TCB) and several community banks.
