James Garvey named chief executive of Borel Private Bank & Trust


Boston Private Financial Holdings has appointed James C. Garvey as chief executive officer and president of Borel Private Bank & Trust, the company’s Northern California affiliate, effective 13 December.

Garvey joins Borel from his previous position as president and chief executive officer of BPFH’s Pacific Northwest private banking affiliate, Charter Private Bank.

He replaces James D. Dawson, a senior executive at BPFH, who was named interim chief executive pending the completion of the search process. Garvey will also replace Dawson on the Borel board of directors.

“Jim Garvey brings a wealth of experience, great integrity and a deep, intuitive understanding of private banking excellence to his new role at Borel,” says Mark Thompson, chief executive officer of the private banking group at BPFH. “Jim is one of the most talented bankers at our company. He has led Charter’s successful evolution toward our high performance private banking model, and we are thrilled to see him take the helm at Borel, a bank that we view as central to our West Coast growth strategy.”

Prior to joining Charter, Garvey served for eight years as president and chief executive officer for Flagship Bank and Trust of Worcester, Massachusetts, which he joined in 1999.

Garvey also served as a senior vice president for T.D. Banknorth, formerly known as Safety Fund National Bank. Previously, he also held positions at Shawmut Bank and General Electric Capital.

“I am very excited about the opportunity to join Borel,” says Garvey. “This is a bank with incredible client relationships, a well-earned reputation for outstanding client service, and deep, enduring ties to the local community. We believe the long-term growth opportunities in the Northern California market are extremely attractive and I look forward to continuing to build and enhance Borel’s private banking strengths together with the exceptionally talented people throughout the organisation.”

BPFH has also appointed V. Charles Jackson as the chief executive officer of the West Coast Private Banking Group effective 1 January 2011. Jackson is currently the chief executive officer and president of First Private Bank & Trust, the company’s Southern California affiliate.
