TAMPA — T. Corey Neil has been named president and CEO of The Bank of Tampa as well as getting a seat on the board of directors at the institution and its holding company, the Tampa Bay Banking Company.
Neil, 47, replaces Bill West, becoming the third CEO in the bank’s 38-year history.
West, who’ll stay on as CEO of the holding company, says in a statement announcing the change that “Corey has been with The Bank of Tampa for nearly two decades, and through that time, he has gained an incredible understanding of our market and developed deep connections with our clients.”
“He is well-primed to continue The Bank of Tampa’s mission of being the Tampa Bay area’s community bank.”
Neil began at the bank in 2003. Before being elevated to the CEO position, he’d been the bank’s president and chief operating officer.
In addition to Neil becoming CEO, The Bank of Tampa also named Thomas Oliver as chief administrative office.
Oliver, 46, has been with the bank since 2018, most recently serving as The Bank of Tampa’s director of operations.
The Bank of Tampa, which opened in 1984, has more than $3.1 billion in assets and more than $1.4 billion in loans according to the statement.
