Five BMO Bankers named to Crain’s 2020 Notable Minorities in Commercial Banking list


Five BMO Harris Commercial Bankers were recently recognized by Crain’s Chicago Business as part of their 2020 Most Notable Minorities in Commercial Banking feature. The 40 executives included in the list represent a variety of leading financial institutions in the Chicago area, and work with clients ranging from large corporations to middle-market and small businesses.

BMO’s honorees were Eric Smith, Vice Chair; Carl Jenkins, Head of Community Investments; Oscar Johnson, Head of Sales, U.S. Treasury & Payment Solutions Sales; Guadalupe Marquez, Director; and Patricia Tyree, Director.

In addition to their work at BMO, each of BMO’s honorees are active in their communities, volunteering for causes and participating in professional associations and employee resource groups. During the COVID-19 pandemic, many were also involved in leading BMO’s response to the Small Business Administration Paycheck Protection Program loans, which have been lifelines for small and mid-size businesses during this difficult time.

Congratulations to each of BMO’s honorees!
