Bank of America today announced that David Hulse will succeed Mike Fields as market president, serving as the company’s enterprise leader in Tallahassee. Fields, who led the market since 2004, recently announced his intention to retire following a distinguished 48-year career with Bank of America.
“Mike has been a great leader for our company in Florida,” said Brian Moynihan, chief executive officer, Bank of America. “He has lived our company’s purpose to serve our customers and the communities we are part of for more than 40 years, and on behalf of all our teammates, I thank him for that.”
As market president, Hulse will work across Tallahassee and Gadsden, Jefferson, Leon, and Wakulla counties to connect Bank of America’s business lines to deliver integrated financial services to individuals, families and businesses. He also will lead Bank of America’s corporate social responsibility work in the market, which leverages the unmatched capabilities of the company to help partners, people, communities, and a broad client and customer base more effectively address a wide range of issues.
“David’s demonstrated leadership and banking expertise over the past 30 years will ensure we’re helping make our customers’ and clients’ financial lives better, through the power of every connection we can make with them,” said Moynihan.
In addition to his responsibilities as market president, Hulse is the senior commercial banker for the team that manages commercial banking relationships in the Gulf Coast. The group provides integrated financial advice and services – including credit, treasury, international trade, rates and currencies risk management, and merchant services – to small and midsized U.S. companies.
Hulse has been an active community leader throughout his career. He was an active board member of Boys & Girls Clubs of the Big Bend from 2005 through 2016; is on the board of Florida’s Great Northwest, a regional economic development organization representing the 12 Florida counties that comprise the Panhandle; and for many years served as a volunteer coach in Tallahassee Parks and Recreation Department’s youth sports programs.
Hulse has a bachelor’s degree in economics from Wofford College.
Last year, Bank of America employees of Tallahassee volunteered more than 2,100 hours to local nonprofits, and the company’s philanthropic giving helped local organizations develop and grow, including those that provide basic human services such as hunger relief, housing assistance and workforce development. The company’s philanthropic support included America’s Second Harvest of the Big Bend, Boys & Girls Clubs of the Big Bend, and United Way of the Big Bend.
Kelly Whitley will succeed Fields as Bank of America’s state government relations lead in Florida. She joined the company in 2008.
