Harris appoints David Casper head of commercial banking


Harris, a member of the BMO Financial Group, has appointed David R. Casper executive vice president and head of commercial banking.

He will report to Ellen Costello, president and chief executive of Harris Financial.

Casper was previously executive managing director and co-head, investment and corporate banking, US with BMO Capital Markets.

"We have built strong momentum in our commercial banking business and see considerable growth opportunities ahead as the Midwest economy begins to recover," says Costello. "Dave’s extensive leadership experience in our company and the relationships he builds with customers ideally position him to lead the next phase of our Commercial Banking growth. I’m delighted he’s joining my leadership team."

"The opportunity we have in front of us is substantial, and our path to success is clear. We will compete on our ability to best understand our customers’ and prospective customers’ business and to provide the advice and capital needed to achieve their objectives," adds Casper. "Ellen and her colleagues have built a strong team, a stellar reputation and one of the best brands in the marketplace. Combining these strengths, with the significant industry sector knowledge housed within both Harris and BMO Capital Markets, will provide the foundation from which we will build this business."

Casper has spent his entire career in Chicago and all of it within BMO Financial Group. Joining Harris in 1978, Casper has worked and managed both mid-market and large corporate client groups within the Harris organisation.

In 1997, Dave joined BMO’s investment banking group where he primarily focused on building the M&A, private equity and debt raising capabilities for BMO Capital Markets. In 2006 he was named co-head of US investment and corporate banking where he and his co-head, Dom Petito, have been responsible for all investment banking and corporate banking products in the US for its industry sectors.
