The former Florida Bank executive will now lead for the Bradenton-based bank.
Kathryn Pemble is the new president and chief operating officer at Community Bank of Manatee, a Bradenton-based bank.
Pemble resigned from her most recent prior position, as chief credit officer of Florida Bank Group Inc. earlier this month. Prior to that, she served as that bank's president and chief executives at times. She has leadership experience with other banks as well, having served as Pinellas County president for Bank of America.
“We are honored to have one of the most highly regarded women in Florida banking join our team,” said Trevor Burgess, a director with the bank.
Community Bank of Manatee has $250 million in assets, and operates five branch offices. The bank posted a small profit in the second quarter of 2010.
