BofA exec named CFO at CapStar

Ohio native also held posts at Capital One Bank; new planning role for Rhodes

CapStar Bank has lured from Charlotte a veteran Bank of America executive to be its new chief financial officer.

Rob Anderson starts his new job at downtown-based CapStar today and takes the place of founding CFO Lynn Rhodes, who has moved into a new senior vice president of finance role. There, President and CEO Claire Tucker said Rhodes’s “extensive experience in business unit planning and analysis will support strategic decision making.”

Anderson was most recently senior vice president of business performance management with BofA, leading the company’s global wholesale banking technology and operations group. During his two stints at the company, he also has held multiple finance roles, including as chief financial officer of business banking.

“We expect big things from Rob, given his past record of achievement,” Tucker said. “He is a strategic, results-oriented individual who will serve CapStar well as we focus on strategic, profitable growth in 2013 and beyond. He’ll be a vital addition to our leadership team.”

In addition to his time at BofA, Anderson was senior VP of Capital One Bank North America and CFO of that company’s commercial bank, which has $2 billion in annual revenues. He is a native of Northeast Ohio who earned an accounting degree from The Ohio State University and an MBA in Finance from Pepperdine University. He is also a graduate of the University of Virginia’s Darden School of Business executive education series.

Anderson's hiring is the second executive move at CapStar in recent weeks. Late last month, Tucker said former Fifth Third regional CEO Dan Hogan would take over from Tip Evans as COO.
