Quad City Bank & Trust Announces Retirement of Jeff Lockwood, EVP, Chief Lending Officer
Quad City Bank & Trust (QCBT) is proud to announce the retirement of Jeff Lockwood, Executive Vice President & Chief Lending Officer. Lockwood started with the bank 15 years ago as the Senior Vice President of Commercial Banking, overseeing commercial, correspondent, credit cards, real estate & retail. Effective July 4, 2021, his current responsibilities and management of the commercial banking group, correspondent banking department, and treasury management team will transition to John Nagle, Senior Vice President, Chief Lending Officer.
“I am grateful to have had the opportunity to manage 5 different business lines and will deeply cherish the relationships I’ve developed, both internally and externally, throughout my tenure at QCBT,” says Lockwood. “It has been a privilege to watch this company grow over the years and to see so many new local jobs and opportunities created.”
Lockwood began his banking career 38 years ago as a small business banker at a family-owned bank in Denver, Colorado, where he was eventually promoted to a credit analyst position and manager over the retail banking division. Prior to joining the QCBT team, his experience spanned a variety of areas within the financial industry, including correspondent banking, marketing, credit analysis, deposits, cash management and loan operations. He eventually transferred to Davenport, IA to become a Senior Vice President of Commercial Banking, where he met QCBT co-founder, Mike Bauer, and decided to embark on a new journey with QCBT.
“Jeff has always believed in the power of local decision making and empowering our employees and clients,” says QCBT CEO, John Anderson. “His dedication to building relationships inside and outside of the bank is something we will always admire.”
Lockwood holds a bachelor of business administration degree in finance from Iowa State University and earned his executive management certificate from Notre Dame. His commitment to our community extends far beyond the bank walls as he spends his time outside of work volunteering with the Quad Cities Chamber of Commerce, Junior Achievement of the Heartland, and the Iowa Natural Heritage Foundation. He is currently serving as the active treasurer on the Riverbend Transit board of directors and is a past president and executive committee member on the Vera French Health Center board.
