MIAMI LAKES, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--BankUnited continues to support its robust growth in Orlando with the promotion of Michael McClanahan to the newly created position of Market President Orlando and the hiring of two industry veterans to the business banking and corporate lending teams.
On a July conference call with industry analysts, BankUnited Chairman and CEO John Kanas noted, “We began early this year to start to spread out our loan origination mechanism across the state and we are finding that we are getting a very, very strong early indication from areas like Tampa, Orlando and Jacksonville. The pipeline for Florida by the way going into the third quarter is very strong….Much of that is driven by the new people that we brought on.”

A resident of Winter Springs, he received his bachelor’s degree in business administration with a specialty in finance from the University of Central Florida and holds the designation of certified treasury professional.
