Miami banking veteran Robert Hilson has new challenges as he becomes statewide president of Bank of America
With Tim Laney moving to Charlotte, NC, to head global corporate sales for Bank of America's Global Treasury Services Group, the bank looked to Miami last month for his successor as Florida market president, choosing third-generation Miamian Robert E. "Rob" Hilson. Concurrently, he retains his position as global corporate and investment banking credit services executive.
Mr. Hilson, 47, has been in the banking industry since leaving college. He started with Florida National Bank in Miami and has been with Bank of America and its predecessors since 1987. Before taking his new role, he had been South Florida market president, responsible for operations in Miami-Dade and Monroe counties, since 1998.
Mr. Hilson, the subject of a Miami Today profile in 1998, detailed what his role as head of Florida operations for a bank with more than 700 banking centers in 17 markets around the state entails in an interview with Miami Today international editor Michael Hayes.
