Spence “is an outstanding leader who will continue to build on the bank’s strong momentum, which he has helped create,” Marsha Williams, Fifth Third’s lead independent director, said in the release. 

Spence “has been an integral part of the leadership team since 2015, helping develop the strategies that Fifth Third is executing with excellence through innovation, technology and citizenship,” Williams added.
