Modern Talent Solutions for a Traditional Industry

For two decades, Smith & Wilkinson has set the bar for excellence in executive search for community banks and credit unions. Our clients have come to depend on our market expertise, our commitment to excellence, professionalism, candor, integrity, and of course results.

Our clients include community financial institutions (banks and credit unions), service providers and associations, nonbank lenders and financial technology (fintech) companies, community and economic development organizations, and government-sponsored enterprises. Our tenured team of search professionals has experience representing clients across the spectrum of organizational missions, from those clients who view their roles as stewards of their customers’ money across generations to companies looking to get products to market with speed.

Successfully completed engagements have included searches for Board Members, some of the most highly visible CEO searches in our space, and across functional areas of lending, credit, operations, technology, finance and accounting, risk management, human resources, wealth management, and marketing.
