Our Leadership

TriState Capital’s founders decided to form a bank that combines the capabilities of a large financial institution with the personalized service of a community bank. With over a century of combined experience in finance, our founders sensed a growing demand for banks that can address the unmet needs of this middle client base.

They built their new bank from the ground up for this sole purpose – an institution with the philosophy, the people, the processes and the products to successfully serve this specific group of clients. The result is TriState Capital Bank: more responsive and personalized service than national and super-regional banks; more capabilities than community banks and thrifts.
