Enterprise Bank Appoints Successor Following CEO Retirement

Enterprise Bancorp’s and Enterprise Bank’s CEO, John “Jack” P. Clancy Jr., is retiring after holding the position of CEO since 2007. Clancy, named an honorary director of the company by its board of directors, will serve as an executive advisor. Succeeding him as CEO is Steven R. Larochelle, chief banking officer of Enterprise Bank.

Clancy has served Enterprise Bank since its founding in 1989, starting as the chief financial officer, where he was instrumental in the successful launch of the bank. During Clancy’s 17-year tenure as CEO, Enterprise Bank has grown from 14 branches to 27, while total bank assets grew from $980 million in 2006 to $4.6 billion as of March 2024. In his role as an executive advisor, Clancy will assist with the CEO transition.

“Jack has been the backbone of the Enterprise family for 35 years and mere words cannot express how much we appreciate his dedicated service. He is highly respected within the bank, our community, and the banking industry in New England,” George L. Duncan, executive chairman of the board and founder of Enterprise Bank, said. “It’s to Jack’s credit that Enterprise Bank was named one of the best places to work for 12 consecutive years under his leadership. Jack has more than earned retirement and time with his family, but we appreciate that he has agreed to ease the transition to a new CEO leadership by offering his advice and counsel.”

A 40-year veteran of the banking industry, Larochelle has been with Enterprise for over 27 years, most recently as chief banking officer. During his tenure with Enterprise, Larochelle has handled a wide range of responsibilities for the bank in the areas of commercial lending, cash management, wealth management, mortgage services and branch operations.

Larochelle has been deeply committed to the communities served by Enterprise Bank. He currently serves as the chairman of the board of directors for D’Youville Life & Wellness Community.

“We have developed a deep, talented leadership team and have worked hard to ensure succession across the organization to plan for leadership members’ retirements,” Duncan said. “It is our pleasure to appoint Steven Larochelle as CEO. He steps into the role with a wealth of experience. He has earned the respect and admiration of his Enterprise colleagues and banking peers. He is the right person to lead us forward.”

“I am honored and grateful to the board of directors to be afforded this opportunity to serve and am committed to a smooth transition for our team members, customers, community partners and shareholders,” Larochelle said.
