Mark Hoppe, who orchestrated the sale of Taylor Capital Group to MB Financial nearly a decade ago, is retiring.
Hoppe plans to step down as the Chicago region president for the $211 billion-asset Fifth Third Bancorp, a title he gained after the Cincinnati regional bank acquired MB Financial in 2019. He will retire at the end of this year.
Mark Heckler, a senior commercial banker, will succeed Hoppe, who will serve in a senior advisory role after his retirement.
Hoppe “has made a substantial and lasting impact on customers, employees and communities,” Tim Spence, Fifth Third’s president and CEO, said in the release. “He has established a unique legacy in the Chicago market.”
