Sanibel Captiva Community Bank named Lee Golden director of retail operations and a senior vice president.
In that role he will oversee the opening of Sanibel Captiva's new downtown Fort Myers branch early next year in the Edison Theatre building, at 1533 Hendry St.
“His reputation precedes him as an experienced, dedicated banking professional and we look forward to working with him as we bring community banking back to downtown Fort Myers,” says Craig Albert, the bank's president.
Golden has more than two decades of banking experience in Southwest Florida, involving the growth of retail bank and deposit operations as well as loan products. In addition to his banking work, Golden is a member of the Greater Fort Myers Chamber of Commerce's board and the Edison & Ford Winter Estates' board of trustees. He also was a past board president of the Family Health Centers of Southwest Florida.
Founded in 2003, Sanibel Captiva operates five branches currently in Sanibel and Fort Myers. With $332 million in assets, the bank generates the third-highest return on equity of Florida's 151 chartered banks.
