NAPLES AND FORT LAUDERDALE – Fifth Third Bank, National Association, has announced David Call, regional president for South Florida, will retire in June after dedicating more than 20 years to Fifth Third. Jim Weiss, a credit risk executive, will succeed him.

David’s leadership and community involvement has been integral to the growth of our presence in the market. David has led teams in Florida since 2008. David earlier served as regional president of our Ohio Valley region and he worked in numerous roles in Commercial and Retail before taking on a regional leadership role in 2005.

“David’s leadership in the Ohio Valley region and Florida over the past two decades has been significant in helping us grow and expand across geographies with great service. We wish him the best in his next chapter,” said Fifth Third Bank President Tim Spence.

Jim Weiss is a 14-year veteran with Fifth Third. After serving for several years in St. Louis, he has become a fixture in Florida banking. Most recently serving as the Middle Market credit risk executive, Jim previously led Tampa Bay as city president and was the senior commercial banking executive in the North Florida region. His civic commitments include service as chair of the Tampa Bay Economic Development Council and executive committee for the Florida Aquarium. In his new role, Jim will relocate to South Florida.

“Jim’s leadership as a city president in our Tampa market coupled with his commitment to the community will enable us to continue on the strong path of growing our market share while serving our customers,” said Spence. “We look forward to continuing our expansion in this key market.”
