Orlando, Florida (PRWEB) August 29, 2014

Park Avenue Group, the award-winning Orlando based executive search firm, in partnership with USAmeribank today announced that after a rigorous national search process, USAmeriBank has named Kade Peterson as chief operating officer effective July 14th 2014.

Peterson is responsible for administrative activities and operations at the $3 billion bank, the largest independently held bank in the Tampa Bay area.

Peterson is a 25-year veteran of the financial industry, most recently serving as executive vice president, operations and technology executive at Sterling Bank, now part of Umpqua Bank, in Spokane, Wash.

When Peterson started at Sterling, 14 years ago, that bank was about the same size as USAmeriBank is now, and it quadrupled in size during the time he was there. He expects to see the same growth at USAmeriBank.

I signed up to help them grow and deliver the people and processes to make that happen, he said.

A key part of Petersons role will be integrating advances in technology, according to a statement from the bank, but in an interview, Peterson said his day-to-day job will be looking at people, processes and technology - in that order.

No one wakes up in the morning and says I want to go to the bank. Our job is to make it easy, Peterson said. Customers want to deposit money, to spend money and borrow money and our job is to make those things easy and provide products and services that help them make good choices about how to do those things.

Park Avenue Group was retained by USAmeribank to undertake an intensive search process for a new COO. Having demonstrated an ability to successfully execute growth and transformation strategies for banking institutions, Peterson was clearly the best candidate to guide USAmeribank to a more profitable, focused and growth oriented future, said Stacy Stevens, President and CEO of Park Avenue Group and the founder of the company. The executive team at USAmeribank wanted a strategic thinker with the experience and ability to capitalize on their present strengths and leverage new opportunities. Kade has a proven track record of making strategic decisions that generate positive results.
