In his new role, he will oversee the Trust Services and Investment Management groups as well as the bank’s wholly owned Registered Investment Advisors, Morton Capital Management and R.E. Wacker Associates.

Hamill has more than 15 years of experience with trust administration, investment management, private banking and brokerage. Before joining SBB&T, he was a regional director for Wells Fargo Bank in Sacramento with responsibility for the Northern and Central California markets.

“Leo has outstanding skills and a proven track record in building and managing cross-functional teams in the Trust and Wealth Management businesses,” said George Leis, president and chief operating officer. “We are fortunate to have a person of Leo’s caliber at SBB&T, and I am confident that his experience and expertise will be a great benefit to both the bank and our community.”
