Regent Bank in Davie, Fla., has promoted Dawn Calder to the newly created position of chief credit officer.
Calder was previously senior lending officer at the $349 million-asset bank. Calder joined Regent in 2009 as a regional manager. She is a former chairwoman of the Florida Bankers Association Educational Foundation.
As chief credit officer, Calder oversees the assessment of prospective borrowers' credit risk, as well as the bank's loan portfolio. She also makes recommendations to the loan committee and board of directors on loan applications and policies.
Her previous position of senior lending officer remains vacant, Calder said in an interview. Neill LeCorgne, Regent's president and chief lending officer, has assumed those responsibilities in the interim.
Regent Bank operates five branches in Boca Raton, Davie, Fort Lauderdale, Pompano Beach and West Palm Beach.
