Capitol Bank expands leadership team with two promotions

Madison, Wis.-based Capitol Bank expanded its leadership team. 

The bank promoted Justin Hart to president and Ami Myrland to executive vice president. Ken Thompson remains as CEO and chair of the board.

Hart has been with the bank since 2007, and most recently served as senior vice president. He has a Bachelor of Science degree in finance from the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse and an MBA from Edgewood College, Madison. 

Myrland joined the bank as SVP/CFO in 2019 and has more than 20 years of banking experience. She will retain her CFO role and focus on retail, finance, marketing, technology and human resources lines of business. She has a Bachelor of Science degree in accounting and finance from Edgewood College. 

“With the growth Capitol Bank has experienced this year, reaching $520 million in assets and opening a third location, an expansion of the leadership team was in the bank’s best interest,” Thompson said. “Strong leadership that invests in our community while driving a customer-focused approach to banking is key to the future success of Capitol Bank. I’m honored to expand Justin and Ami’s roles within the bank and look forward to the positive impact these changes will have for our customers, employees and shareholders.”
