Todd Ritterbusch joined TBK Bank as its chief lending officer in 2019 with over 20 years of banking experience. In October of 2021, he took on additional responsibilities overseeing the bank's retail and treasury management teams. "Todd has taken significant steps in bringing the bank's retail, treasury management and lending teams into greater alignment and has improved the bank's efficiency, credit quality, and deposit growth," said Graft. "He brings a tremendous amount of expertise and a deep understanding of how TBK Bank fits into the overall strategic direction of our enterprise focus on payments, factoring and banking."
