Iberiabank in Lafayette, La., has added a retired investment banker to its board.

The $20 billion-asset company said in a press release Tuesday that Rick Maples, who once was head of investment banking at Stifel Financial, had become a director.

Maples retired from Stifel's broker-dealer unit in January, though he remains a senior adviser to the company. His investment banking background includes work in the banking and financial services sectors.

Maples became co-head of global investment banking at Keefe, Bruyette & Woods after Stifel bought its former rival.

Maples' "investment banking experience and relationships, as well as his extensive insight into market conditions, mergers and acquisitions, and other topics impacting the financial services industry, will provide significant value to our company," Bill Fenstermaker, Iberiabank's chairman, said in the release.

Iberiabank also added Eli Jones, dean of Mays Business School at Texas A&M University, to its board.
