Riverview Bancorp, Inc. has announced that executive vice president and chief banking officer, Kim Capeloto, will be leaving the Bank after 11 years. “After more than three decades in banking, Kim let us know that he has decided it’s time for him to try something new and different,” explains Kevin Lycklama president and chief executive officer. “Of course, we are disappointed for Riverview; on the other hand, we are excited to see Kim explore new possibilities because that’s what he wants to do.”
Capeloto joined Riverview in 2010, helping the Bank achieve significant growth, while building a customer-centric branch system, including 17 branches in SW Washington and Oregon.
“I’ve really enjoyed my time working at Riverview,” says Capeloto. “I have had the honor to lead a dedicated team that puts customers first. I’m incredibly proud of them.” Capeloto continues, “I’m excited to tackle some different challenges and I am currently considering several interesting opportunities. As a customer, shareholder and friend, I’m also looking forward to watching Riverview’s continued growth and progress.”
During his tenure, Riverview nearly doubled in size to $1.7 billion, rolled out new products and services and expanded into new markets. Capeloto could always be found representing Riverview at community and nonprofit events.
“We have asked Kim to continue to represent Riverview in the community, and he has agreed to do so,” says Lycklama. “We look forward to maintaining a strong relationship with Kim and seeing him at these events in the future.” Capeloto will be leaving Riverview in early February. He reflectively states, “I’ve made so many friends here, and while I’m sure going to miss them, I’ll still be around.”
