James Monroe will be vice chairman and CFO, with Regina White as compliance officer and Doug Brewer as commercial lender, according to Triangle Business Journal.
Simpson Brown submitted a de novo application on May 14 and the organizers subsequently filed an application to the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. to obtain FDIC insurance and a North Carolina state commercial bank charter.
