BBVA Compass has made staffing changes to its Laredo, Texas-based wealth management group, including the addition of James Notzon as senior wealth adviser.
The position was created for Notzon based upon his experience and understanding of the diverse financial needs of South Texas’ wealth management clients.
Notzon brings 24 years of banking, investment and wealth management experience to the bank, most recently in Laredo-based positions with Merrill Lynch (1992–2010) and the former Laredo National Bank (1986–1992).
"James is a true Laredoan, who wants the best for his community and his clients," says Bill Helms, senior executive vice president and head of wealth management. "His passion for Laredo, South Texas and Mexico is inseparable from his work. With expertise and knowledge of the market, honed by 24 years of banking, investment and wealth management in Laredo, James brings great leadership to BBVA Compass."
Additional changes to Laredo wealth management include the promotion of Roxanna Ramos to regional manager. Ramos is a Laredo native and long-time BBVA Compass employee, who recently relocated to her hometown from San Antonio.
Additions have also been made to the wealth management sales force, with the promotion of Lizzy Trevino and Lalo Uribe, as well as the hiring of Mary Garza as private bankers.
