Vice Chairman, CFO, Comerica
As she continues to help guide Comerica to the financial performance targets she established for the company (return on assets greater than 1.3 percent, efficiency ratio below 60 percent), Karen Parkhill will take on a brand new challenge: preparing the $63 billion-asset Comerica to join the list of large bank holding companies stress tested each year in the Federal Reserve's comprehensive capital analysis and review.
Luckily for Comerica, Parkhill arrived in 2011 with plenty of experience working within a large bank holding company. She previously was with JPMorgan Chase, where she was an investment banker and later CFO for the commercial bank.
Now back in Dallas, the city where she began her career as an analyst with Dain Rauscher, Parkhill is on the executive board of Southern Methodist University's Cox School of Business and active in the United Way of Metropolitan Dallas. She's also a national trustee for the Boys and Girls Clubs of America.
