First American Bank, a privately-held bank with more than $6 billion in assets serving the Chicago, Milwaukee, Miami and Tampa, FL, markets, added Tony Sasso to its Tampa team as senior vice president of commercial lending. In his new role, Sasso will oversee business development in the bank’s west and central Florida markets.
“We are excited to have Tony join our team to offer a full suite of banking and trust products to middle-market clients and owner-managed businesses throughout west and central Florida,” Kevin Shukur, Tampa market president of First American Bank, said.
Sasso has more than two decades of experience in bank sales and management. Previously, as a business banking relationship manager for Fifth Third Bank and later a commercial banking relationship manager at Woodforest National Bank, Sasso provided solutions and services to small and commercial businesses while overseeing business development.
“After speaking with leadership, the decision to join was simple,” Sasso said. “Culturally, it was a perfect fit. I trust the bank’s leadership, and their values were a significant factor in joining. First American Bank has a strong focus on the local community, which allows us to offer more personalized solutions and attentive customer service.”
