National Bank Launches Specialty Finance Unit

National Bank Holdings announced the addition of a new commercial banking line of business with the launch of a government and non-profit specialty banking unit. The team will be led by industry veteran, Tim David, who joins the company from CoBiz Financial where he founded and was the head of their public finance business.

Based in Greenwood Village, CO, the new government and non-profit specialty unit will place an emphasis on the regions within the NBH Bank footprint, which includes CO, KS, MS and TX.

David has over 15 years of experience in the industry, with an emphasis on banking government and non-profit entities. Prior to founding the CoBiz Financial public finance business, Tim founded the Denver-based public finance specialty unit for Wells Fargo’s Denver regional business banking team.

Joining Tim David is Brian Martorella from Wells Fargo Government and Institutional Banking, who also brings extensive industry experience and a proven track record in government and non-profit banking.

“We are pleased to add another commercial capability to our company. Under Tim David’s leadership, we will focus on fulfilling the financing and treasury management needs of clients in the government and non-profit segments across our markets. The launch of this business is another key step we have taken in 2013 to broaden our commercial capabilities and better serve our commercial clients through specialty offerings,” said Tim Laney, President and CEO of National Bank Holdings Corporation.
