NCP Bank named Krista Flynn as the new executive to head commercial banking in the Midwest.

She oversees lower-middle-market commercial banking for businesses with annual revenue between $5 million and $50 million in nine states and 20 markets.

When contacted about the position at PNC, Flynn saw the role as a good fit and an opportunity “to be able to help the entire Midwest grow and become a great force, and just continue the strategy of growth”.
“It really came at a time when I wasn’t expecting it, but when I got the phone call, I really understood that it was a big, exciting role (and a) much bigger opportunity. than the one I had when I was just covering western Michigan,” Flynn said. MiBiz. “I really feel like coming home and I feel very comfortable. People asked me yesterday, ‘Does it feel weird going back?’ And I said not at all. It’s like I never left. »
Flynn, who remains based in Grand Rapids, served as regional president in West Michigan at Huntington Bank after the acquisition of TCF Financial Corp. last summer. She had joined TCF following its July 2018 acquisition of the former Chemical Bank, where she served as regional president.
