Encore Bank in Ark. adds banking vet to board

Encore Bancshares in Little Rock, Ark., has added a Florida banker to its bank’s board.

The company said in a press release that Rita Lowman is one of three new directors at the $2.8 billion-asset Encore Bank.

Lowman was president of Pilot Bank in Tampa, Fla., which was sold last year to Lake Michigan Credit Union. She subsequently joined the board of Caldwell Trust, a wealth manager in Venice, Fla.

The other new bank directors are Chad McNair, a startup investor, and Garrett Frost, who runs an aircraft company. Encore also said that Mark Richardson, a real estate developer, was appointed to the company’s board.

“We are thrilled to welcome these four new directors,” Chris Roberts, Encore’s chairman and CEO, said in the release. “Their unique experiences and backgrounds will be instrumental to us as we continue to grow and build a different kind of bank for our clients, partners and employees.”
