Capital One Bank named Chris Haskew its new state president and also announced three regional market presidents.
Karen DeBlieux, Grant Guillotte and Rick Larsen will serve as market presidents of southeast, southwest and north Louisiana, respectively.
Three executives who have dual roles are giving up state or market president responsibilities to focus on their positions as systemwide commercial banking executives for the company.
Haskew will be responsible for the overall design, development and implementation of Capital One’s community strategy for the state. The market presidents will handle efforts at the regional level within the state.
Haskew, an LSU alum and former north Louisiana market president, replaces Rob Stuart as state president. Haskew, who has 23 years of experience with Capital One and its predecessors in Louisiana, will move to Baton Rouge from Shreveport. Larsen will replace Haskew as north Louisiana president.
DeBlieux, who is based in New Orleans, replaces Steve Hemperley as southeast Louisiana market president. Guillotte replaces Michael Wack as southwest Louisiana market president. Guillotte will remain in Lafayette.
Stuart, Hemperley and Wack will remain in their corporate executive banking roles for Capital One Bank. Stuart is head of middle market commercial banking; Hemperley is head of underwriting and portfolio management for the middle market; and Wack is head of dealer services, government banking and U.S. corporate.
Stuart, Hemperley and Wack have “guided our community efforts in Louisiana at the same time they have served as Capital One commercial banking executives with responsibility across the bank footprint,” Capital One South Central Regional President Sanjiv Yajnik said. “While they will maintain their systemwide roles as Capital One banking executives, they have decided this is a good time to establish new leadership within the bank on the Louisiana market president team.”
Yajnik said Haskew, DeBlieux, Guillotte and Larsen are experienced and highly regarded as local Capital One bank and community leaders and will build on the community support and involvement that Stuart, Hemperley and Wack shaped in Louisiana.
