MAY 6, 2022 - 7:29 am
JPMorgan Chase Commercial Banking named Arnold Evans managing director and co-head of the emerging middle-market division (EMM) within the company’s middle-market banking and specialized industries (MMBSI) business. With fellow co-head Terry Hill, Evans will be responsible for the Southeast and Northeast segments for the EMM division from his base in Atlanta. He will also join the MMBSI business’ executive committee.
Evans has more than 20 years of experience as a financial executive. He has experience in client engagement, strategy, capital markets, risk, governance and commercial banking. Evans joined JPMorgan Chase from Truist, where he led the equity originations group.
“Today’s emerging companies are operating in an exceptionally complex environment, and we’re committed to providing radically simple banking solutions that help save time so they can focus on running their businesses,” John Simmons, head of the MMBSI business at JPMorgan Chase Commercial Banking, said. “I’m thrilled that Arnold will be taking the helm with Terry as we continue to invest in the people and technology to build the best digital banking platform and experience for our clients in this dynamic sector.”
“I’m excited to join forces with Arnold to take EMM to the next level for our clients,” Hill said. “We’ve been focused on transforming the client experience for emerging middle-market companies. Recruiting Arnold to join our leadership team is the latest step in continuing to build on our dedicated effort to better serve this segment.”
“Rejoining JPMorgan Chase, where I started my career 25 years ago, is a special homecoming opportunity for me to help build out an exciting part of the MMBSI business,” Evans said. “I’m eager to tap into my background to help deliver a delightful experience to this unique segment of business leaders, especially as the incredibly active sector continues to evolve.”
