Integrity Bank has tapped the founding president of the former HomeTowne Heritage Bank to join its executive team.
William Poole will be an executive vice president at Integrity, the Camp Hill-based bank said in a news release.
Poole first worked at Sterling Financial Corp., the parent company of Bank of Lancaster County, since it was acquired by PNC Financial Services Group. Poole left Sterling in 1998 to start HomeTowne.
The sale of HomeTowne yielded 2.74 times its shareholders' initial investment, for an annual compound return of just over 30 percent, according to Poole's biography at Greenleaf Financial Group, an investment firm in Manheim Township where he was a partner and vice president before joining Integrity.
"We are thrilled to add an entrepreneurial banker as we continue to build Integrity to the billion dollar plateau," Integrity Chairman and CEO James Gibson said in a statement.
Integrity Bank has branches in Cumberland, Dauphin, Lancaster and York counties. It is privately held.
