Comerica Names Anderson Colorado Market President, Adds Middle-Market Banking Team

Comerica Bank named Jenae Anderson its first Colorado market president. She previously served as Comerica’s head of commercial banking in this footprint and was responsible for overseeing commercial lending and community engagement, which she will continue to do in her new role. Additionally, she will now lead a new middle-market team for the greater Denver area.

“Comerica has been serving the needs of middle-market businesses for more than 174 years, with multiple lines of business supporting the Denver area for 30-plus years,” Anderson said. “I am excited to bring middle-market banking to Colorado.”

Anderson has worked in the banking industry for more than 25 years, including 20 in the Denver market. According to LinkedIn, prior to joining Comerica in 2022, she spent six years at JPMorgan Chase, where she most recently served as executive director and market executive for Colorado. Anderson had previously worked for JPMorgan Chase from 2006 to 2012, but she left for brief stints at Vectra Bank Colorado and U.S. Bank before returning.

In addition to her experience growing and leading middle-market teams, Anderson has been active for several years in diversity, equity and inclusion efforts. Anderson currently serves as a member of Comerica’s DEI Education Council, a group of more than 25 colleagues across markets and departments that promotes DE&I on a corporate-wide basis through awareness, anti-racism and inclusion education focusing on creating a culturally competent organization.

The new middle-market team will be comprised of Matt Ederer and Marybeth Wiggins as relationship managers, Cody Friedlan as a portfolio manager and Joanna Love as a senior lending assistant. The team will serve businesses with annual revenues between $30 million and $500 million.

“Together, we bring close to 80 years of banking experience to the middle market,” Anderson said. “We are collaborating to find creative solutions to meet the credit and treasury needs of businesses in the front range while delivering on the Comerica promise of raising expectations of what a bank can be in Denver.”

Ederer has held various roles within the banking industry over the past 11 years, starting as a personal banker before ascending to management in retail banking. Ederer then transitioned to commercial banking, first in credit, and later serving as a portfolio manager before pursuing relationship management.

Wiggins has worked in banking for the last four years. She first completed an internship with JPMorgan Chase and later served as an analyst and associate in its commercial banking program.

Friedlan has eight years of commercial banking, underwriting and consulting experience.

Love has more than 30 years of experience in the retail mortgage industry and has held various positions in that sector, ranging from underwriter to quality analysis coordinator.

The middle-market team, as well as 21 additional Comerica colleagues across various lines of business, including energy, dealer services, finance, FX trading, technology and life sciences and trust services, will be based in Comerica’s newly renovated, 6,251 square foot space at Denver Place (999 18th St.) in Denver.

“We are also celebrating a new office space, which further reflects Comerica’s commitment to this market as we replicate our bank’s proven relationship banking model in Denver,” Anderson said.
