Capital One Names Mullens Market President; Kearny to Retire


Capital One promoted David Mullens to Baton Rouge market president and manager of Commercial Banking for Southwest Louisiana and North Central Louisiana. He will be taking over from Ric Kearny, who is retiring in early March after 26 years with the bank.

A longtime member of Kearny’s team, Mullens currently serves as a senior vice president and relationship manager in Capital One’s Middle Market Commercial Lending group in Baton Rouge.

As market president, Kearny has been responsible for the design, development and implementation of an integrated community strategy for Capital One Bank in greater Baton Rouge. In his commercial banking executive role, he led a team of local commercial bankers responsible for the bank’s full range of commercial products and services in Southwest and North Central Louisiana.

“As a banker and community leader for nearly three decades, Ric’s impact on Louisiana — and greater Baton Rouge, in particular — has been tremendous,” said Chris Haskew, Capital One’s Louisiana Middle Market Commercial Banking executive and state president. “Among the many bankers who have benefited from Ric’s leadership and knowledge is David Mullens, whose banking expertise and community commitment will serve our customers and greater Baton Rouge well and build on our strong momentum after he moves into the market president role.”

Mullens joined Capital One in 2007. After completing the bank’s middle market commercial credit analyst program, he became a business banker, earning several internal awards for success in meeting the needs of a wide range of small-business clients in greater Baton Rouge. In 2013, he joined Capital One’s Middle Market Commercial Lending group in Baton Rouge and was named a senior vice president in 2015.
