Raymond James Bank’s Marty Gladysz To Retire, Ken Ginel To Serve As Chief Financial Officer

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. – After nearly a decade of service at Raymond James Bank, Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer Marty Gladysz will retire on May 11. Ken Ginel, a 22-year veteran of Raymond James Bank, will succeed Gladysz as CFO and treasurer.

Gladysz joined Raymond James Bank as CFO in 2008 with 35 years of financial industry experience from multiple leadership roles at several Tampa Bay-area banks, including time as chief executive officer of startup bank Central Bank, CFO of Madison Bancshares and CFO of Fortune Bancorp. He also was treasurer of Eckerd Corp. and began his career as a certified public accountant with KPMG.

“Marty is a fixture in the Tampa Bay banking industry, and he has been integral to Raymond James Bank’s success and growth,” said Steve Raney, Raymond James Bank CEO. “His leadership will be missed, and I wish him a long and happy retirement.”

In his new role, Ginel will oversee the bank’s accounting, financial and regulatory reporting, financial controls, budgeting and planning, cash management, investments, and deposit and branch operations. Ginel has spent his entire career at Raymond James Bank and has taken on a wide array of complex responsibilities over the years, most recently serving as senior vice president and controller under Gladysz. Ginel joined Raymond James Bank in 1996 upon graduation from the University of South Florida with a degree in business administration. He is also a 2003 graduate of the Florida School of Banking.

“Ken is a well-respected leader who has shown the ability to manage a wide array of complex responsibilities throughout his tenure at Raymond James Bank,” Raney said. “He and Marty have been working diligently on smoothly transitioning responsibility, and Ken has my full confidence as he takes over this important role.”
