Capital in Md. taps insider to oversee fintech business

Capital Bank in Rockville, Md., has tapped an insider to run its fintech business. 

The $2.2 billion-asset bank said in a press release that Karl Dicker had become president of OpenSky and fintech. OpenSky is the bank’s secured Visa credit card. 
“Karl has been instrumental in the development and growth of OpenSky,” Ed Barry, Capital’s CEO, said in the release. “Allowing him to narrow his attention to these lucrative growth opportunities is in parallel with our strategic plan.” 
Dicker previously served as the bank’s chief operating officer. 
Capital said that Steven Poynot had succeeded Dicker as COO. Poynot previously served as COO at F&M Trust. Before that, he was chief information officer at Howard Bank. 
“We are thrilled to have Steve join our senior management team,” Barry said. “His background and experience add to the depth and knowledge of our team and will serve our bank well as we continue executing on our strategic plan.”
