Baytown, TX (PRWEB) February 28, 2006
John M. Floyd & Associates, Inc. of Baytown, TX, (near Houston) has established JMFA Executive Search Group to identify, scrutinize and recruit top-caliber candidates for senior managerial positions at the nation’s financial institutions. http://www.jmfa.com/pageContent.aspx?id=806
“In effect, we have assembled our top talent to help banks, S&Ls and credit unions find their top talent,” said Steve Swanston, EVP-Sales for JMFA. “If a financial entity is looking for a CEO, COO, CFO, president or other top-level professional, we are a uniquely-suited resource.”
JMFA, a leading provider of non-interest income products for more than 30 years, has provided performance improvement programs in more than 2,000 financial institutions, adding billions of dollars in increased pre-tax earnings for its clients in 49 states and Central America. It has implemented more than 1,000 variations of its JMFA OVERDRAFT PRIVILEGESM and is partnered with leading national core processors serving financial institutions. Nearly 30 banking and credit union organizations have named JMFA either an “endorsed” or a “preferred” provider/ partner for overdraft privilege (also known as courtesy pay).
“We are applying our experience to help institutions find the industry’s top performers,” Swanston added. “Knowing the financial industry inside and out provides crucial insight to locating the talent critical to managing successfully in an ever-changing marketplace. We are committed to making sure dream prospects don’t get away.”
Executive Consultants within the new division are Garry Modrell and Charles Shanley, Swanston announced. (Link to executive photos: http://www.jmfa.com/ExecutiveSearchGroupBios.pdf) “With their in-depth human resources experience and the vital industry contacts our field executives can provide, we believe the new Division is a dynamic recruiting resource. Most of our field force previously held senior level positions within the financial services division.”
Modrell, who joined JMFA in 2005, has 26 years experience in banking search, primarily commercial banking, nationwide. He was previously with an independent executive search firm for seven years. A graduate of Drake University and the University of Kentucky, he moved to Houston in 1980 to join a large personnel firm. He is involved in community volunteer work -- Special Olympics, public radio fundraising -- and referees high school football and basketball. He also is vice president of the Houston Area UK alumni club.
Shanley has specialized in executive recruiting and project management for more than a decade. Prior to joining JMFA, he worked for several years as a recruiting manager in one of the largest recruiting firms within the industry that specializes in the credit union market. Prior experience also includes placing top executives in the areas of financial services, engineering and petrochemicals. The avid outdoorsman received a Bachelor of Business Administration from Angelo State University (San Angelo, Texas).
“We know financial executives are resourceful when it comes to looking for the right fit for top-level executive positions,” Swanston added. “They keep an eye on emerging stars and often tap their own networks to fill vacancies.
“But at times, they need someone fresh who will come into their institution with new ideas and a new vision. We believe JMFA Executive Search Group can shorten the search process and improve on the final selection. We’re making it our business to find the hard-to-find.”
