BMO Harris Bank has appointed Shaheena Khan as regional leader, retail banking, Minnesota and Western Wisconsin; Dalila Rouri as regional leader, retail banking, Florida; and Patrick Strieck, regional leader, retail banking, Arizona.

“Shaheena, Dalila and Patrick have a tremendous amount of knowledge across our business and are passionate about building and developing high performing teams focused on delivering an exceptional customer experience,” said Ernie Johannson, group head of U.S. personal and business banking. “We look forward to our new team of regional leaders continuing to accelerate our growth in these markets based on our strong brand reputation.”

To capitalize on the opportunity to accelerate growth and leverage the depth of leadership talent, BMO is announcing a new region within its existing markets that will merge its Minnesota and Western Wisconsin operations.

In her new appointment as regional leader of the Florida region, Rouri will oversee all BMO locations and teams. She will drive growth for personal banking, business banking and premier services. Previously, Rouri served as market president of the Florida north region. She has led large teams and has a proven record of delivering top tier results while developing high-performing teams over the 15 years she’s worked in the industry.

Strieck will serve as regional leader for Arizona, supporting and leading the growth activities for personal banking, business banking and premier services. Most recently he served as chief administrative officer (CAO), U.S. personal and business banking – supporting business delivery, operational effectiveness and providing strategic counsel to the business’ leadership team. Prior to his CAO role, Strieck held a variety of leadership roles, including head, U.S. Contact Center and managing director, U.S. Retail and Small Business Payments.
